Our story begins in the humble setting of the Bensonhurst neighborhood in Brooklyn, one of the five boroughs of New York City. It was a place that was not too different from the many other small communities around the country at that time. However, it became the one place that history will remember because of the “Boys of Brooklyn.” This is our story.
One thing is for sure; the world existed before we got here and will go on as if we never existed. We have been blessed with a calling to better ourselves and in doing so we will better the world around us. Our legacy is that we made a difference.
Our time as a culture has probably passed. What’s left of it remains in our memories and on re-runs of Dick Clark and American Bandstand. One thing is for sure: our kids know that something very special happened to us while we were growing up, something that all technologies and sophisticated virtual reality video games can never match. There is a difference between virtual reality and reality itself. We lived reality; you can’t explain it, you have to live it. We did.
