De Witt Clinton, Bronx, NY 2002

Doesn't it look nice? My first day, as I was going up the stairwell, someone grab my foot from behind and tried to steal my shoes. Much of what happened during the next three years ihas been blocked out.

I can't remember having any friends there. One of my most vivid memories is that somehow I got hooked up with kids that were seriously contemplating burning the school down, but it was just talk.

I also remember that when we took the S.A.T.s we were seated in the auditorium and given slabs of wood to rest on our laps and that it was hard to fill in the little circles because the pen kept moving along the grain of the wood...


I offer several Bronx photographs as Note Cards here
