Second of three sons, born May 1952 in Doctors Hospital, NYC: I grow up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in Knickerbocker Village, shown here in 1955
I play in the sandbox with my older brother, unaware that Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (who also lived in Knickerbocker Village) had been executed a year earlier, in June 1953.
Alternate summer entertainment: take the subway to Coney Island, Brooklyn, 1955
Kurt is born and us older brothers ponder the new arrival (I'm at the far right, recently turned three); this must be July or August 1955.
We move to an apartment complex in the suburbs: New Rochelle, NY (brother Kurt is on the right), 1957
All the kids pose with Mom in front of the apartment house on Davenport Avenue, New Rochelle, NY (younger and older brother on the bottom row), 1957
Another pose in front of the apartments in New Rochelle, NY (one of the few photos showing Mom and Dad together; brother Kurt sitting), 1957
I already play, but now I start taking lessons (the left hand is for show only), circa 1958
A formal portrait is taken, spring 1958
