Remembering Chauncey Street

It has been over a year since I created a blog post, and I am still suffering from writer's block. Rather than leaving this blog dormant any longer, I am pursuing a wonderful alternative which presented itself at a family reunion this past summer.

I was reunited with my cousin, Patsy, who has written a poignant series of stories about her childhood, living on Chauncey Street in Brooklyn, New York. I was enthralled by the incite that these stories provide into the lives of those who I knew so well and yet so little. I look forward to sharing with you Remembering Chauncey Street by Patricia Aronica. On Tuesday, for the next 15 weeks, I will post on this blog, each of the anecdotes written by Patsy about her life on Chauncey Street from the middle 1940s through the 1950s.
