My Bronx...


The Candy Store in this photo is where Angelina's parents owned their restaurant. Angelina was a little girl about six years old, who was part of the group of kids that used to walk to and from School together everyday. In my story, "Where We Land", I was conned into protecting her by her big ole father, and he was BIG, because he knew that my father was Francesco Caruso. He used to wait just outside of his place everyday when he knew we were about to round the corner with some cookies for us. The first fight I ever got into was protecting Angelina from a bully kid about seven years old. He looked bigger than I. At six years old it scarred the hell out of me.                                                                                        He looked big, hell, everything looked bigger cause most times it was!
