My brother Chuck and I walked from Decatur between Ralph and Patchen to the safety of P.S. 70 every day. Bed Stuy was my world. I attended 70 in the 50's from kindergarten til 5th grade. My parents proudly sent me to P.S. 21, The Crispus Attacks School, the first school in our area named after an African American. Thank you to the community of African American families from the South and West Indies who stood up and fought to create an environment in Bedford Stuyvesant which helped many of us stand on their shoulders and become successful. Thanks to the pioneers and the foundation you laid down for us. May the Lord bless you for your diligence and hard work against the odds.

I started attending P.S. 70 in kindergarten in about 1936 when the neighborhood was just starting the transition from white to black. All of our teachers and most of the students were white. Adults in the neighborhood did not associate between the races. But, we kids made friends across racial lines and played with each other after school. Our teachers at P.S. 70 were all kind and considerate. Our Principal was a Mr. Honerkamp and his chief enforcer of discipline was the frightening Miss Schreiber who also taught Music Appreciation. I am told that P.S. 70 has now become a Jewish parochial school and that those lovely brownstone homes in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood bring a big price on the real estate market. As a result, that whole area is going through a gentrification with the return of young white residents. What comes around goes around!
