I'm Just In That Kind of Mood

There once was a note, pure and easy,
Playing so free, like a breath rippling by.
The note is eternal, I hear it, it sees me,
Forever we blend, and forever we die.
Peter Townshend, "Pure & Easy"

OK Tom this is getting scary! I actually lived at 1616 York Apt #3 from `89 to `98 on the first floor! It was the southside studio apartment facing York Ave. It could have been the SAME place you guys had! I know the building had been owned since the early 50s by family named, Abelson and they'd heavily renovated it in the late 60s wt a new white brick facade.

It was the first floor southside apartment. The Ryans, Mom' family, lived there from 1943 to 1967, when Abelson split the railroad apts into two. We had the backyard that you stepped down into out a door in the kitchen.

Email me:, I'll send you photos of the apt. and backyard.
