In Transit (subways and cabs)
Born in the Bronx, some people say no thanxs(near the Grand Concourse-an urban dwellers dream) and always lived in the Bronx until very recently(now in Westchester). It was necessary as a youngster to learn how to play Stickball. What was great about the Bronx was the ease of getting into Manhattan and Westchester. I really believe there is no place like Manhattan for so many events. Fortunate to attend well regarded public education institutions-Bronx High School of Science and State University of New York at Stony Brook. Downside of living in the Bronx was the necessity to move as neighborhoods declined.
