Richard, Bay Ridge

Other than a stint in the Navy during Vietnam, Richard has lived in Bay Ridge his whole life. The house he lives in has been in his family since the 1940s, and he remembers when guys from the Brooklyn Dodgers like Duke Snider, Pee Wee Reese and Carl Erskine lived across the street. He met his wife working as a soda jerk at a drug store down the block.

"What's your favorite part about living in Bay Ridge?"

"What do you like least about living here?"
"There's too many people!"
