I feel I have so many ties to Yorkville from different groups... first my friends from 87th who all went to St Joe's or PS 77 -- except for the Monahans, the Delaneys and Ellen Capaccio, second my classmates from St Iggy's as we called it -- saw a few familiar names on here - Carole Finnegan, Pat Sheehan, Dorothy Gilmore (sister Maureen was in my class), John Delaney -- and last but not least the whole 85th St crew who I hung out with in my late teens -- the Dougherty's, the Kevans, the Kurtzes, the Zankos, Eileen Kerrigan, Mary Ann Marcovics, and some of that Cozy Corner crowd like Diamond Jim Brady and Mr. Clean, the Farrells, the list goes on and on. I married Robert Harris from 83rd St (went to PS 6, Wagner Jr High, and Commerce). Bob passed away in 2004 and I am now remarried. My current husband is from California and we're living in AZ. If any of my old friends still in the NE is looking for a warm spot to visit when winter rolls in again, look me up. I'm loving the sun and my pool and my hot tub!! e-mail: mharrisalcalde@msn.com

from Martha Federman (4/3/05)

Mostly hung out at Lexox Hill Neighborhood House as a teenager. Some of my friends from the neighborhood are Maureen Sullivan, Franny & Rosie Covello, Sara & Patty Hannon, Jeanie Manarivick, Ann Cacia. My boyfriend back then was Stan from the DelSatins. I would love to hear from some of my Yorkville friends that grew up in the 50's & 60's.

from Laura Maria Dolciamore (Maiden Name) (4/1/05)

I love this site! It brings back such wonderful memories of those days gone by. It makes me feel so lucky that I experienced such a rich childhood living in Yorkville. I would love to talk to anyone who thinks they may know me.

from Laura Rickman Horelick (3/25/05)

So many memories! I love reading about the old neighborhood especially from people who lived there and went to OLGC 20 years before me. It has changed so much but the more you visit the more the feelings come back that this was once yours. I live in CT so I can do this fairly often yet I still miss it all.

from Thomas Macchia (3/24/05)

Trying to find someplace for profiles.

from John Morris (3/16/05)

Had a wonderful time growing up in the neighborhood (1948-1967). When you are in the "hood", two places that may have 'contacts' for you are 1) The Wicked Wolf restaurant & bar, 1st Ave & 75th st. SE cor. (Pete Nadler & Dick Ginity) 2) Hoolgans 2nd Ave & 93rd st. East side... frequented by many...

from Loreta Xuereb (2/28/05)

I think some of you may know my brother,Joe,as he seems to be about the same age as most ppl. here. He married Barbara Carmichiel in 1967, & passed away the same year. I'm hoping to find friends from school or from 93rd.

from Bob Schier (2/14/05)

Glad to see a lot of us are still around.

from Stan Zizka (2/13/05)

It was a great place to grow up in. My group The Del Satins came from there. I miss it very much.

I get a big kick out of the photos and message postings. Always nice to let my mind drift back to simpler times.

from Alice (Andrews) Gay (/15/05)

It was great reading about the old neighborhood. I would love to have an e-mail address for the East Side House. I spent most of my youth and teen years split between there and John Jay Park. The most fun I remember was sleighing down the ramp for the East River Drive on 78th Street. It was a great place to grow up.

I love reading about Yorkville. I love the remembrances.
I only lived in Yorkville for 21 years but I will always be from Yorkville, Manhattan and a New Yorker. We are a unique
group. I received a free drink at "Elaines'" because I was a "Yorkville Girl".

from Ann (Brown) Armstrong (3/30/04)

Born 1939 and lived at 1670 York Avenue until 1942 when we moved to 1786 First Avenue. I lived there until moving to Queens with my husband in 1959. Still in contact with friends from the neighborhood. We have been apart for many years but all have fond memories of our coming of age in Yorkville.

from Janice Finnegan (2/1/04)

Having sooo much fun with this site.

from Kathleen Walla (maiden name) (2/1/04)

I don't remember anyone posted on this website but I do enjoy reading about the old neighborhood. I was born and raised on 83rd Street and left in 1977 when I got married. I worked on 82 & East End Ave. up until two years ago and the neighborhood has changed with high rise buildings and restaurants galore. I still enjoy visiting the city once in awhile.

from Martin Dougherty (2/1/04)

Lived in Yorkville till 1961 when I joined the Marines to see the world. Living in Wellington, Florida where I enjoy the garden 24/7.

The guestbook can be very successful (if it stays up) and everyone leaves their email address and comments about what neighborhood they came from. If you want to be part of the Yorkville' Who Who, just send an email to me and I'll add your name to the list.
