I'm 24 years old, and I'm coming to NY for the first time in my life. I am hoping to get as full an experience as possible by visiting all the different areas of Manhattan. Jose, I came across your website while looking for general info on the different areas of NY. I'm so glad I found it - you really paint a fantastic picture of east harlem - the good and the bad. It's so great to see someone who loves their community so much. I hope to meet some people like you when i visit in january. I'm canadian and i'm just dying to see every part of NY. Best to you all!!

I lived with my grandparents at 162 east 112st. in the 30's and 40's. They rented the top floor apartment. Those days we skated the street and played "johnny on the pony." Tony the Iceman sold ice for the "ice boxes" from a wagon pulled by horses. Our neighborhood was mostly Italian. Anybody interested?

My parents grew up in EL Barrio and both lived on 104th street in the 50's and 60's, Johnny and Nilsa. They still keep in touch with their friends and I know that Spanish Harlem has a special place in their hearts. As a kid growing up in the 70's we lived in Johnson Projects- 123 E112 St and Lexington and I can remember making trips with my dad to visit his buddies at the block at 104th. It was a majical place. Especially in the Summer. There no place like it in the WORLD!

Diana Delgado | delgado135@aol.com
I grew up in East Harlem on 104th Street. We lived at and attended Church of the Son of Man in which George Calvert was the Rev. My father Carlos M. Rios was a minister their and eventually went into politics. My brother Carlos Rios, Rosa Rios and I spent all of our childhood there. I graduated from Julia Richmond in 1964. I miss East Harlem those were the best years of my life. I married my childhood sweetheart Orlando and we are now living in Florida with our daughters Deborah and Lena and our four grandchildren. Would be nice to hear from someone in our past especially that attended the Church of the Son of Man.

:biggrin: Hearty and well-deserved congratulations to Melissa Viverito for a hard-fought and all inclusive campaign. :biggrin: It was in large part because of Melissa's sense of equality and a person for ALL the people that she in fact won! The 8th District has a diverse variety of citizenry. It's not just two ethnic groups as many assume. I am proud to have been an active ingredient and part of the success in her historic campaign. :biggrin: U can see MMV's political ad at our website at (search) STONEWALL Veterans' Association plus a link to MMV's Victory Party pix! :biggrin:

Webmaster comments   I am very leary of the word "inclusive" especially as misused by Liberals. To Liberals inclusive means "only those who agree with me". It never includes conservative Christian thought.

8 November 2005

I was born and raised in 100th Street. (Between 1st & 2nd avenues). It was a time unlike any other, and a time that could never be duplicated again. Back then we were not spoiled with the technological advances we see today. Then we had no refrigerators, we had iceboxes, and we would have the Italian iceman come up and fill it for a quarter. Back then we had no air-conditioners, we had open windows and prayed a breeze might blew through. We had no phone, and relied on our power to scream across the street to our neighbors; we had only a b/w television set that had more snowy lines running across it then did a blizzard in Canada. We had little transistor radios that would play the doo-wops of the times; we had no elevators to take us to the top floors. Our toilets were out in the halls by the staircase; our bathtubs in the kitchen, and our mailboxes down near the garbage cans where lived the oversized rats. But I still miss the hissing radiators heard in every apartment during winter; I miss kick-the-can, johhny-on-the-pony, ringo-levio, stoopball, doo-wops sung on corners. The streets where thousands upon thousands of people hung out on stoops, corners, candystores, jukeboxes, and on cars, were our first love, our classroom, our woman, our God. It was an amazing time. We learnt to survive death and life situations that made up our days. But we learn, too, to embrace both with open arms, as both life and death were intertwined. We buried friends and rejoiced at the birth of new family members. And however bruised or maimed our bodies and hearts had been, our souls were the recipient of great growth that only El Barrio could have provided. Peace to you all.

Well, I'm back to this site again, checking up on who is writing what. Please for those of you who are writing in, don't forget to put an email address in your comments so that we may be able to contact you.

When I read the comments left by those who lived in the Wagner Projects and their description of the things they did or who they hung out with, I couldn't help but smile. I really did have a great time growing up. I loved playing skillies with Mary Ruiz and Georgie, hmm can't remember his last name. I just knew he wore taller platform shoes than I did. I loved walking to Randalls, when I wasn't suppose to, I remember the hooky sets, the plays I did (I just knew I would make it to Hollywood. NOT), the number runners who stood in front of buildings, and some old man that used to make Mavi (is that how you spell it?) in the bathtub of his apartment. I remember the "CALL WAITING" we had back then, it was "Someone yelling your name: JEANETTE, JEANETTE. I would look out the window, only to hear someone yelling at me' GET OFF THE FREAKING PHONE". That was my clue to hang up from a long conversation.

The Coleco games that sounded as if you had someone laying around with a heart monitor, and hanging out under the bridge, that is now sooooooooo sadly a parking spot. (It was the last place I hung out with and saw Edwin Ortiz).

I write scripts, and do revisions for others (I am also an associate producer for an independent movie that I am currently working on). I hope to one day finish a script I am working on about all the fun I had growing up in Wagner.

Thank you to all I had the :huh: pleasure of meeting or hanging out with at Wagner. Man oh Man if those benches and buildings bricks can speak, the things they would say. HA. mimigonzo2@aol.com

Waso | eddie_4fun@yahoo.com
People from SH will only remember me by this name -- don't think they knew me as anything else. Saw a post here by Ralph Manon, from the Jefferson projects -- grew up there as well, remember a Fernando Manon ~~ that you? Remembering the touch football games, stick ball, softball and everything else we go into with Dennis James, the Monnono boys (Orlando & Roberto), Victor at Shortstop, Noel, Ralph, Juan, Charlie Brown, Fat Louie, Floody Louie, the Pedrosa family (Tico, Jose Jr., and the rest of them (all great athletes but not the sharpest knives in the draw), Manuel, Tito, Steve (always tried to figure out how he got in haha), ShotGun, Peppie, George, Carlos -- whew -- on and on. Grew up on that dead-end street on 112 and 2nd Ave.left in 1977. Went back a few times but everyone is gone now. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers that era when no matter how bad things got, there was always too much fun going on to worry.

I was born in Metropolitan hospital. Although my family lived on w 80th and columbus ave, we all packed (9 children)into my fathers ford falcon to go clothes shopping for school. Those were the best of times but also the worse of times. My parents used to buy the girls the same dresses (on sale) and the boys the same shirts and pant (cheaper to buy by the dozen) we got into so many fights ( we kicked major butt)because we looked like a carnival act. what i wont give to go back in time. hahaha much love

Shout out to family, friends and everyone. For all those that did not make to East River Day, really missed a wonderful time. This was my first and I pray to make as many more as I can. But for all who didn't make it you really missed us. So maybe next year. It was one of the greatest moments to see so many people after 30+ years. And everyone looked good. God bless us all until next year...

Mari Casiano | MCasiano13@aol.com
I was born and raised in Washington Projects at 210 E 102nd st since 1974. I remember the Eagles Theater, that later became a meat market, Hungry Jack, and now is El Mundo. If you go in El Mundo and look up,you still see the curtains where the stage used to be and the old ceilings. JemalTown and A&B Supermarket across the street, going to Morris Toyland and almost killing yourself down the steep steps to buy school supplies and toys,Kress on 106th and 3rd ave and Cosmos theater on 116th. La Colina was on 102nd and Lex,where they filmed a part of The Believers,rollerskating around the "D" between the projects and the long "cheeselines" to get the big brick of cheese that I am not ashamed to say, was salty and tasted damn good! Ha ha! Chino in the laundromat on 3rd ave between 100st and 101st? I went to PS 121 & 109. The Lees were in style and kids used to run around snatching the tags off of everyone's pants...haha And the Lotto Sneakers with the interchangeable colorful velcro logo to match with your clothes. The park on 99th st had an opening so you didn't have to go around to go into the handball court. Sneaking into nightpool in Central Park at 110th st after 7pm,The Blackout,the time it snowed on Thanksgiving,the tenements up the hill on 101st that kept catching fire,the hill on 103rd,the cardboard sandwiches (still going strong)on 103rd close to Lexington, Happy Roach on 104th st,The Underground store on 104th and 3rd that also burned down,Wards Island picnics,walking back and forth to 86th st or 116th st for no reason and no complaints,the "ants" and the red metal thing in the park between 210 and 1809,the summer school lunches... So many memories,too many to write, but I must admit,it was cooler back then than it is now. That's where I met my first boyfriend. We were kids, about 11 or 12, he was from 1809 and I was from 210, but it did not last long. We moved on with our lives, then caught up with each other again in the parking lot when we were about 24, got back together and have a beautiful, but mischievous son. Just kidding...gotta love him...God Bless El Barrio. :wink:

Man, I came across this website while, just for the heck of it, keying in ‘the East River Projects’. Wow!
Man, I was reading all the entries and was getting overwhelmed. Man, I made it through two whole pages and just had to stop and put in my 2 cents.
Dig it, I was born in Metropolitan Hosp. in 1947, went to P.S. 168 (2nd grade teach Ms. ‘D’, 3rd grade Ms. Wolf), went to Otis Jr. High ( / Ben Franklin), moved to the Island (Roosevelt High), and did a stretch in Nam.
My older brother graduated from Ben Frank and Food Trade (where he got his nickname ‘Cook’), my younger sister P.S. 99 (nickname Ting Ting). We lived in the E. River Projects (400 E. 103rd St. [1st Ave.]).
Fond memories: Use to walk to school (103rd to 116th) along the E. River Dive (Pleasant Ave.) to avoid confrontations with the Red Wings (an Italian gang that hanged around 115th and 1st). Other gangs during the day were the Viceroys, Vikings, Chancellors, Baldies, and the King’s Men (my brother belonged to).
Playing Chinese handball and pitching pennies against the school wall. Attending EHPP (East Harlem Protestant Parish) and camp (Friendly Town). Picnics at Wards Island (pointing out water rats and floating scumbags). Field Day at Randall’s Island. Going to the store for mom’s (Mr. B’s) and trying not to get cheated by him! Also ‘Pop’s Candy Store where I’d get my water gun, bean shooters, water balloons, cap guns, tops, kites, Lone Ranger masks, etc. depending on what season it was.
