Remembrance of Childhood Past

Remembrance of Childhood Past

Acrylic on Canvas

East New York (Brooklyn, NY)  Pushcarts (during the 1950s).

When I was 5-7 years old my father took my grandfather shopping to the East New York, Brooklyn pushcarts (I believe Belmont Ave.) I was asked if I wanted to go.  YES! It was a world I had never seen before, with vendors hawking their products and people yelling back and forth in languages I didn’t understand, and fruit, flowers, pickles in barrels, flying past me. The aged buildings made the whole scene scary to me.  I remember, so clearly, how tightly I was holding my father’s hand.  In retrospect I feel very fortunate to have been able to experience this world that no longer exists.
