from the Introduction:
"... Stoop life offered a smorgasbord of happenings, spaces and times of solace, reminiscences, lively conversations, arguments, impromptu sporting games, and diverse gatherings composed of generations of family, neighbors, friends, even occasional strangers.
"The motley atmosphere of one particular Williamsburg Brooklyn (WB) neighborhood stoop permeates these pages."What makes for meaningful memories from WB’s yesterdays will, we hope, entertain and inspire readers today and well into the future. This historical fiction work focuses on slices of the realities faced by the hard-scrabble individuals who passed through WB, including Carolyn Angiolillo.
