    I know the neighborhood all too well. As recently as 2007, I was coordinating Rapid Opiate Detox in a Surgi-Center in a neighborhood about 2 miles from the Bronx Zoo.....but one that had a calculated street survival rate of approximately 3 minutes...AKA you walk around the neighborhood for more than 3', odds are that you're gonna get shot.

    Oh...during my internship days in the late 70's....I moonlighted at a Medicaid Clinic on the Grand Concourse and 148th St. Not to mention the group home I worked at for 2 years in the early '80's located between Park and Morris....right near the elevated D train where they would throw bricks and light-bulbs at you from the platform as you tried to negotiate the path from your car to the hi-rise tenement where the group home was housed.

    Have I stirred up some memories??? Have I explained why you moved to the South West???

    Edit...or did you??? I see your location has changed....or am I imagining things???

    Edit Edit....great scene from a great movie, BTW

    I actually don't live all that far away from you...I live in Westchester NY....born and raised New Yorker...although I live in Bedford now...as opposed to The Fordham section of The Bronx..."a world unto itself...where any borough is only 15 minutes away....but they seem 3,000 miles away."


    And yes...you stirred up many memories...the interesting thing about being down there was if you walked on Arthur typically you were fine...(although ownership down there has changed somewhat these days) but if you walked a block or two in the wrong direction...you might not come back.

    I actually got married at the Botanical Gardens...

    Love all of those movies....

    Bedford is as far from the Bronx as Beverly Hills....figuratively speaking. Although Arthur Ave is still the "sine qua non" for Italian cuisine. Do you run into Bill and Hillary often?? As far as the movies...you win...hands down. Chas Palmentari could beat the crap out of Joe Pesci any day.

    Chas actually lives relatively close to me...I think his daughter goes to the same school as my son. We moved up here in August. I haven't seen Bill or Hillary around town yet...although there is much less of a town here than in Chappaqua where they used to be...the actual Bedford Village Green is pretty tiny.

    My favorite restaurant down there is Pasquale's Rigoletto...fantastic food.

    It's funny, I went to school an hour away from NYC, and visited many times. But it remains a foreign land to me.
