Growing up in Utica in the 50's was so great. Our schools had no violence at all. Our mom's were home and the neighborhoods were safe. We could play outside all day and our parents knew we were ok. Going to the playground , walking to Addison Miller, the zoo,skating at the parkway. We weren't rich but our lives were.
Life was good. Our dad's had great jobs. Both grandparents were walking distance from our house. Two Great Aunts were also close by.
Respect your adults was taught. As a kid growing up in Utica ,it was the best.

if we could only 'turn back the years' for just one day, I would give anything. I am 71 years YOUNG. It seems like yesterday that I was swinging my partner around at St. Anthony's canteen dances. Those were the best years back then, from around 1956 through the late 60's. As I get older, I think about those days and wonder what all the people in that era are doing. I moved to Philly in the 70's (my job) and lost touch. Just moved back here in 2003, to stay.

Hi. I ran across this forum and found it quite interesting.My dad was Louis Galotti also known as Gene and yes he was an artist. He also had a friend named Namer but by 1946 he was married so I'm thinking that he is being confused with another man called Gene. My dad's brother was Anthony and Tony played football. I have photos of my dad and Namer and yes Namer was very good looking as stated. I hope this helps. If my dad is the gene you are thinking of Thanks for remembering him. He was a wonderful man and we miss him a lot.

Namer would be around 77/78.....how old would your dad be now? Namer got married in the early 60's.
