Thanks to Ed Weisman For These
Wonderful Rockaway Memories

 Dear Alan,

Although I'm not an FRHS alumnus (my older brother Mike, though, is a graduate) I consider myself a proud product of a Rockaways childhood and I immensely enjoy the Far Rockaway web site.

At the urging of my aunt and uncle who lived in Edgemere my family moved from
Washington Heights to Hollywood Court in Far Rockaway just in time for me to
begin kindergarten at P.S. 104 in 1947. Our neighbors on Hollywood Court
included Myrna and Kenny Lande, Diane and Stuart Ackerman and Geraldine Arden. My best friend, Eddie Levick, lived across from us on McBride Street. I was a member of the first graduating class of Cardozo JHS and I attended FRHS for one semester but we then moved to East Rockaway and I graduated from Lynbrook High School in 1959.

I recently came across the attached class photo and my Cardozo diploma. The other photo shows the intersection of Central and Mott Avenues taken with my then-new camera in September 1957. Feel free to post any of these on the website if you wish.

Please keep up the wonderful work you're doing.

Best wishes,

Ed Weisman
