Its a small world

I had a doctor's appointment in the city and afterward needed a cab to Grand Central.
Got to talking to the driver...told him I moved upstate from Brooklyn. He asked where I
lived in Brooklyn. I said Canarsie up until five years ago. Oh he said, surprised...I live
in Canarsie....he lived about five blocks from near Glenwood. I asked him if he was
Haitian....yes he was.....I said most of may block was and we all got along beautifully.
I'm still in touch. He said he loved living there....but driving a cab in Manhattan- well
that I understood. It's more crowded then ever. Small world.
