My Home, Jersey City, 1970

leave a comment »

This was my home at 544 Liberty Ave in Jersey City while I was in first and second grade in 1970-71. We moved there so my father could be closer to work at Eagle Beef on Central Ave. Humble beginnings.

Does anyone do this anymore? Anywhere in the world? I search my memory, but I cannot remember this occurring recently. It should. This is an amazing display of humanity.
