2 thoughts on “UrbaNerd: East New York Tells its Own Story

  1. I spent some early years on Williams street, I attended P.S. 174. I remember some conflicts with the Black kids, but they were “Just Kids” to me and my cousins who were also the same age. A group of my Puerto Rican family moved to East New York from the west village, where they lived after coming from P.R. My family moved to Spanish Harlem in 1964. My friends and I traveled through the Back Yards, over wooden fences and alleys.

  2. Thank you for the interesting story. I have only one question. How much of a role did upward mobility play in the relocation of the changing population in ENY?
