Wilkins Ave, Boston Rd & Crotona Park East

Would like to hear from kids who grew up close near Wilkins Avenue (1563) and Boston Road and the park nearby was Crotona Park East. The school was either PS 60 or 61 and the Junior High School was Herman Ritter Junior High School. I was born in 1946. My first grade teacher was Miss Clancy; we also had Miss Alabam. On Wilkins Avenue we had a Chinese Laundry whose owner had seven daughters; the Wing Family; Laura, Susan, Mabel, Edna, etc. There was also a Zimmerman Family in the building; Jane. One of my classmates was John Shea. Also the Hernandez family lived there -- a young boy by the name of Ricky; father's name was Henry. I also remember a Carol Poppin in the area. Maria Baris and her brother John from Italy. Anyone remember?
