NOTE the absence of any tall buildings

the grassy area visible across Gun Hill Road is now
occupied by storefronts in the foreground and a
city housing project called "the Surrey" behind
those stores - all across the street from Evander
Childs H.S. which would have been off tho the left of
the photographer. Joe Mulino lived in our building a
block away from here at 3415 Colden and drove a
Medaglia D'Oro Espresso truck, often parked on Colden!
