Bronx, New York
Welcome to "Pictures Of Old And
New Friends".....On this page you will find pictures of the crowd we hung out with in the Bronx back in the 50's and 60's . The girls are identified by their maiden names as we remember them.  Some will have their pictures then and now. Anyone who can relate to this page and would like their picture to be included or if they have a picture of another friend who hung out with us , may send or e-mail the picture to me.  Let's see how many of the old crowd we can get back together on this page

Still Making Friends
Meet The Innkeepers
At
"The Bronx Lodge"
 
Friends are like flowers which blossom. Above are the friends with whom I began my journey through the first half of my life and continue to enjoy to this day, while  below are the new friends I have made through "The Bronx Lodge" message board  with whom I will journey the rest of the way.  We're just ordinary folks who came to know one another through that one special bond we all have in common.... "The Bronx."  In the past year, the seeds of friendship were planted and nurtured and have blossomed into the wonderful lasting friendship we enjoy today.
