Re: [PHOTO] They Demolished A Building And Look What Was Exposed

Posted by FYBklyn1959 on Tue Mar 24 16:47:10 2020, in response to Re: [PHOTO] They Demolished A Building And Look What Was Exposed, posted by Bill Newkirk on Tue Mar 24 13:32:06 2020.

My dad lived in a 2nd floor apartment in the building on the right in 1972. I was living with my mother in Illinois then, but spent the summer in Brooklyn with my grandmother. On two occasions that summer, she had to travel to her native North Carolina, in June when her older brother fell ill. He subsequently died, and she returned in July for his services. During both those times, I stayed with my father. The el was gone by then, the apartment looked out onto Myrtle, so I was treated to a parade of B54 buses, including an Old Look (last time I ever saw one, as they would be gone by the following January). Too bad the el wasn't still there then (though if it had one, I doubt my father would have taken the apartment, he hated the subways (he was born and raised in South Carolina, after serving in the Air Force during the Korean Conflict, he attended college where he met my mother)).
