I lived at 305 Madison Avenue as a boy. My father's name was Arthur John Secor. I haven't walked the streets there since I was almost eleven when I had to move to North Carolina.I am writing a book about my childhood there. I am trying to make contact with people there.Can anyone help? Beam me up Scotty. My father died when I was six in 1960. He worked at the old Westinghouse plant. Thank you.

As children we would ride our bikes down Prospect Avenue. We called it Larry's Hill. Does anyone remember why?
My stepfather was from Manila. His name was Rick Carolipio. He is deceased now. My mother's name was Margaret Ethel Ericksen. She passed a month before 9/11.
I hope someone in Prospect Park or the immediate area can help me remember my past.
I am plannining on visiting in the near future.

I went to Interboro Heights Elementary. Does anyone know if Monty Cross is still alive. He lived near the school. Does anyone remember the Termites football team?

Hey Snip! Yes, my sisters name is Linda. I was about to give up trying to get a response. Thanks I will getback to you very soon.

Linda has been in Alaska for several years now. She is two years older than me. Do you remember two brothers on Madison Ave.named Wesley and Barry? There was also a boy named Eddy next door to us. I don't want to use last names for their own privacy of course.

Snip, I believe Alan went the elementary school that came before the one on Pennsylvania Ave, there was an Elementary in Prospect Park right on 420 Lincoln Ave which I think was torn down in 49 before the new one opened. I have picture of it.
