Growing up in Bay Ridge
« on: May 05, 2016, 04:04:09 PM »
My mom's family grew up on Marine Avenue and 98th, in number 208, a little house between the taller apartment buildings at the top of the block. She and her brothers and sister went to Saint Patricks. As a journalism graduate student, I've spent the past three months reconstructing what happened to their family in 1966, and Bay Ridge is very much a character in that story. I read posts on this page from people with dear memories of growing up in the neighborhood, so I wanted to share the story here and ask you to share your stories with me.
