The Ness Family

Residents of the East New York

Feeling part of this neighborhood that was filled aplenty with Jewish immigrants, many of whom had arrived in America through Ellis Island just a couple of generations earlier, meeting friendly neighbors, making many family visits to my grandparents' Brooklyn apartment on a regular basis during my childhood, these are memories that I will carry with me and cherish for the rest of my life ..."
