Hi, My family and I lived at 70 Paladino Ave until I was about 10. I went to P.S 78 and my sister Carol went to Julia Richman. She is 63 now and I am 55. We used to hang out in the projects and on 118th st a lot. Those were good days. Is there anyone out there from the old neighborhood?

I grew up in Jefferson Projects, 112th Street and both 3rd and 2nd Avenue. El Barrio was my third parent. The people were my cousins. I'll always remember El Barrio, mi corazon. P.S. 102, I love you. Jackie Robinson Junior High School, you almost killed me but I love you too. Que Dios lo bendigas.

Wow!I am thrilled to have found this site. As a child lived in 2012 2nd ave. right across the street from the park & ps. 121. I remember those late hot summer nights as a kid listening to people playing congas, bongos & other intrustments and singing into wee hours of the morning! now a days people call the cops!lol I also remember this store on 2nd called Hugos, boy they made some really good burgers. This store on 104 & 2nd the was called Cardonas & that man was mean.lol the minute you entered the door he was breathing in your face asking you que tu quieres.lol i hated having to go there for my Mom. Was born in metropolitan hospital in the 70's, went to ps.121,jhs 99 & norman thomas hs. Have a sister name Dee & Mom called Elsie. As i read from someone else's post, i remember the eagle movie theater, the bakery in 103 with the pan planchao.lol when they first opened Mcdonalds on 3rd ave. It actually was more like a real restaurant rather than fast food like now, it had a big fountain inside. Jamal town, Morris toyland, little store ponce that sold everything you could imagine. kress,saverama & La Marketa just to name a few. They all really bring me back lots of memories. The Jams in the park! I was a bit young for those but enjoyed while watching out the window.My Mom still lives in the area so every so often, my son gets a glimpse of where i came from and why i am the way i am!! I love El Barrio & all the wonderful people that i've come a cross through the years. God Bless You All!

CULLEN DORN - aka: Butch from 100th Street | CULLENDORN@aol.com
I was born and raised in 100th Street (between 1st & 2nd avenue). It was a time unlike any other, and a time that could never be duplicated again. Back then we had no refrigerators [we had iceboxes and we would have the Italian iceman come up 5 flights of stairs and fill it for a quarter]. We had no air-conditioner, we had broken windows held close by tape. We had no telephone and had to scream down the street to our neighbors. We had a black & white television that had more snowy lines across it than a blizzard in North Pole. We had little transistor radios that played the Doo-Wops of our times. Our toilets were out in the hallway and our 4-legged bathtub in the kitchen. Our mailbox was by the garbage cans down near the basement where lived oversize rats and strung-out junkies. I still miss the hissing radiators heard in apartments during the winter. And in the summer when we played games like kick-the-can, johhny-on-the-pony, ringo-levio, stoopball, and doo-wops sung on corners. 100th Street had over 4,000 people living there, and even more hanging out on stoops, rooftops, corners, candystores and jukeboxes. The streets were our first love, classroom, and church. We learnt to survive death that surrounded us every day, as we learnt to embrace life with both arms. It was an amazing time! Our spirits were the recipient of great energies that only El Barrio could provide then. In time I came to write a three-time award winning book: "The Hierophant Of 100th Street" currently being considered in Hollywood for a possible film right. I salute all of you who once lived and survived the old East Harlem that haunts our memories to this day.

I just read the message eulogy for Raphael Antonio Flores(formerly of now defunct Hotline Cares, Inc.) This man was so good that I wish there had been even more written for and about him. I just wish that I had known. Raphael so many days have gone by since I've last seen you and I want you to know where ever you are, I know you are in heaven. I will never forget you, you are in my heart and the reason that the world seems to have changed so much is because you are not here.

God bless you and I will miss you much.

Just wanted to say hello and thanks for reminding me about the little
things in east Harlem that meant a lot to us who lived there.
I remember the eagle movie theater i saw my first Bruce lee movie there. All the kung fu movies back to back to back.I remember the little candy store on 103rd street that sold that great ice cream you remember the name? McGish on 103rd St lex ?
I remember the big hill in the winter time , if your brother went down that hill on a sled god bless him because that's crazy.
Ask him if he remembers snake hill in central park on 102 street sled riding was the best there. I grew up carver projects Madison and park the other of the tracks.
I remember visiting my father at his club between park and lex closer to lex to ask for money in front of his Friends so i could get more. you remember the old mens club up the steps?
I also remember the little candy store between park and lex. I wonder if there still there?
I remember Morris toy land on 3rd ave 106th street ? , we all purchased our bikes and stick ball bats there, you know we all loved to play stick ball.
How about the black out in 1977 was that crazy or what. Morris went out of business after that.
You asked if I was old school?
Well moved to Spanish Harlem in 1968 from bay ridge brooklyn and stayed till 1989 went to PS171, JHS 13. automotive high, college of aeronautics. born in 62.
Guess this makes me old school? I also, remember mollies I was my moms escort.lol helper.shop with the mom get what you want kind of guy. lol.
I remember the little cuchifritos between lex and 3rd. I just saw a picture of it they knocked the building down next to it. Remember the Kress (5&10).
Casita Maria, anyone remember that ? that was in the carver projects.
Anyway I've been living in Florida for 16 years and I really miss my people and el barrio.
See what you did ? I know you wrote this in 2004 but hey, I'm writing back in 2010. Thanks for making me think of the old times.:) and yep yo soy boricua!!!!!

There is no place on this earth that has the rich history and tradition of my birthplace, East Harlem (107th St between 1st and 2nd Avenues). Waves of caretakers of many nationalities have passed thru, each has left its mark, but no matter where we went, East Harlem remained our "home".

It was, is and will remain a rich cultural experience. I am a better person for having walked those streets and touched its many cultures. It was never a melting pot, but a tossed salad with each ingredient maintaining its identity.

We are all better off for experiencing it!

WOW.I stumbled on this site by accident and this is great.I was actually trying to look up some of my teachers from PS 109, which is now closed, on Google but found this instead. I lived in Washington Houses 1875 and 225 and attended 5th and 6th grades at PS 121 I believe back in 85,86 then went on to PS 109/Search for 7th and 8th grades then to Washington Irving. I dont know why, but I have always wondered what happend to my teachers at 109. I really dont remember much and would like get some info on students/former friends and teachers. My teachers at 121 were Ms. Douglas and Ms. Oconnor. At 109 I had Ms. Pabon, Ms. Bonilla and Mr. Hornstein. That's all I can remember. I also remember some of the stores on 3rd Ave that many of you have mentioned but I cant picture exactly where they were like Morris toyland. I remember Kress and Hungry Jack and the bakery on 103rd St, Blakes Pharmacy (still there.wow)and the theater on 116th where I saw ET.lol Anyhow, good to know there is a site like this one.
