My neighborhood

October 1, 2019

My name is Elizabeth. I was born in the South, a little place called Marion, South Carolina. I went to school there, and I was raised by my aunt. My mother came to New York at an early age, and I was raised by my aunt. She passed away when I was going on 12. After then I moved to Georgia, to live with my brother and his wife. From then, school, high schoo, marriage and everything. Living in the south, everybody knows each other. It was our business to raise children and children was obedient. It was nice, we had gardens and stuff, we went to church a lot. At the age, after having children, I moved to New York in 1968. And I’ve been here ever since. I have 6 children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren. I’ve been living in Wyckoff for 40 years almost. This is me today!
