Have I Become My Father?
by Gene Piotrowsky
When I was living in Biloxi, MS, I started to see the similarities of growing up in a small town, and growing up in Brooklyn, a large Borough of one of the largest cities in the world, New York City. I finally realized that growing up on one block in Brownsville in the forties and fifties was like growing up in a small town somewhere in the United States, of course without all the grass.
