The Old Neighborhoods in Queens
In 1962 my parents bought a house in Richmond Hill, Queens. Joe and I met one year later in June 1963.
We were married in Holy Child Jesus Church 4 years later.
On the church steps in 1967
Back again 44 years later

The Church was decorated for Easter.
The school is still in operation.
The current pastor is a Bishop

I graduated from Richmond Hill High School
That tiny room on the 5th floor was my Latin classroom

As a child Joe lived with his parents in his grandmother's house
When we met he was living in "Jamaica"
one block across the Richmond Hill border
. The tree in the backyard was planted about 50 years ago.
Joe's grandmother lived next door in the end house
