Hi Anthony,
I was in your class through the 6th grade and remember all those
teachers and classmates. I lived on Bushwick Ave. between Cornelia
and Putnam.
I hope you are in good health and having a great life. I would love to hear from you.
Warmest regards, Ted

Is it part of growing old that we reach back into our past to see what has happened to some of our classmates? P.S. 56 was a delightful part of my life. Miss McConnell was particularly kind to me. she recognized I had some art talent and was there to encourage me and gave me project to do and hung them on the wall. She had a sense of kindness and a love of children all my family remember her fondly. Memories of childhood and P.S. 56.
Ted if you attended Halsey Junior High 85 , I think i have still a picture of the graduating class. i will try to find it. thank you for remmembering Bushwick Ave and P.S 56
Do you remember the parades on the avenue?
wow I could go on forever ciao

I lived in 1149 Putnam Ave near Bushwick. My father had a grocery store nearby on Broadway.
I attended PS 56 K-2nd grade...had Miss Cocoa, Miss Barbash, Miss Johnson.
Too bad I can't upload pics on this site...I've got a photo which was taken in front of that tire store.
Larry if I can get your email address we can make some kind of an arrangement to get your pictures posted on this site. I have posted a photo given to me of the class of 1919 at P.S. 74. I would be happy to help you.

Hi Carol and all others who remember PS56 and the neighborhood around it. I didn't realize it until recently, that all those theaters you recalled on Broadway were truly very beautiful...especially compared to the Multiplexes we have today. I think the RKO was originally a vaudeville theater. My father kept his grocery store until the riots in 1967. In case you didn't know it, Jackie Gleason on the Honeymooners made some very specific references to the streets in the neighborhood. Hope all is well with you and others from Bushwick.
