like the late great meier kahane used t o say
'after all the yelling and fistwaving-it is always the pitkin avenue never the park avenue
that keep getting burned out.'
life really does not have happy endings
no one really bothers the rich

God can break any curse, and set His people, He is the ultimate in reconstruction, and developemnt. My life and millions of other are a testamony to that fact. If He could raise Christ from the dead he can raise Peckman. Try whispering in the ear of Christ....let Him prove who HE is.

East New York is a blessed land. It produces some of the worst and the best of Men, Women and Children. It's all about how the energy is channeled.

In agree with King Cyrus. I loved living in East New York. It was and continues to be my greatest educational experience. Long live the East New York of my youth.

East new york is truly indeed a blessed land.I'm 20 and have spent my whole life here. I've leaned things here that I've wouldn't have learned anywhere else. These east new york streets breed some of the most complex and brilliant people, but I agree that there is something that is keeping our inner lights from shining.

"who put such a curse on our land?"

The politicians who invented welfare and housing projects and dumped all the ni66ers in ENY. It was a nice place when whites and Joos lived there- until the crime and drugs and people living like filthy sava6es drove them out.

First and foremost I want to thank God for allowing me to be around this long. I was blessed by being able to have lived in East New York from 1962 to 1984 it was a superb and wonderful "experience" Secondly, I would like to thank this site for the wonderful pictures and effort bringing many people with good memories of our neighborhood. I will never forget the sweet smell of Banner's Candy Factory or the Fishing Tackle Store called Doering's both on Liberty Avenue. The picture that inspired my comment was that of the "RECORD SHACK" on Pitkin Avenue, near Rockaway Avenue. I was a DJ and bought many records there of which my most memorable one was the Third World Band's NOW THAT WE FOUND LOVE, it was hard plastic and extended play.. Which gave my clients and listener's of the Salsa Show on WHBI 105.9FM on Saturday nites lots of non-stop sounds.. Check some links also about E N Y and Berriman JHS/PS. Check out berriman64 on MySpace. For the Berriman School on MySpace page and be my friend! There are other sites but pass by my space and get those links. Mike thank you and your team and this comes from the bottom of my heart for your efforts that have been done here at Satan's Laundromat...
