I guess you walked past Gil's house on (was it) Ave K; I lived around the corner from where he ultimately lived on Bedford, between M & N (where Rocky also lived), a considerably less modest section of Brooklyn.

But were you going to Hudde? That was on Nostrand, and you wouldn't have walked as far as the house on K.

(Edit: I went to Tech, and I think we've already established that we were classmates at Brooklyn...June '65.)

Thanks for the link, Jay-bird; I wasn't aware that Reiser was that talented.

He pre-dated my interest in baseball and fit right in with my hatred of history...of any sort.

Yep, I went to Hudde (JHS 240). Maybe I was wrong about the location of Gil's house? I used to walk up K to Nostrand and was told that Gil lived on a side street (I don't remember the number) just before Nostrand. But then, kids said all kinds of things and I believed too many of them. Oh: You're right about being classmates at BC, class of '65. I was a biology major but spent my free time hanging around the music department.

Great article, Jay-bird. Like Artie, most of it predates me (I was born in 1945). The name "Reiser" rang a bell but I don't remember anything about him.

I tried Google, but I couldn't find any of Gil's addresses.

The Bedford Ave house I remember is unquestionably the correct one, because I've got "inside" info on it; the common knowledge in my neck of the woods was that pre-BA he lived on the north side of Ave K between 27 & 28 (but maybe a third address predated that one).

I was born in '43 and majored in Eco/Accounting at BC, with, thanks to unlimited cuts, a dual major in cafeteria. grin
