Making Movies on 84th Street

Near Dinnertime, May 1957:
Leaving Carl Schurz Park rushing the stroller up the 500 block on 84th Street towards York Avenue, the mother tries to remember if the can of Del Monte wax beans is still behind the box of Ronzoni elbows or did they eat it last week?

She’s not in the mood for a Parker’s Grocery stop or listen to Murray’s stupid jokes. It's ten to six.

While Mom thinks, the kid in the buggy looks up at the side of the buildings and sees there are movies playing in the windows. He's three and he already loves this block.
