Over the years, I have received many emails. Some of the emails were just short comments to include their family names on certain avenues and streets. Other comments related to people looking for old friends or classmates that they wanted to reconnect with from the old neighborhood. And, many others came with pictures and that’s is what I want to share on these Yorkville Resources on the internet that I have collected over the years.
This first email was from Mary Ann who lived on 79th Street.
431 East 79th Street. This would be the north side of 79th Street.

Response to Mary Ann’s Email from Mack Muggs on May 21, 2012:
Thanks for the pictures. The girl 3rd from left in top row looks very familiar. I met Kevin in first grade in St. Monica’s and we have been friends since, although there was a span of many years when we lost contact. I was the hookey playing diver Luke on the swim team with him in our first year at Hayes. I was his best man at his first wedding. The pictures of your old apartment bring back memories. I dated Barbara Golden who lived a couple buildings up towards York Ave. I am waiting for a call from his son in law to find out what happened. When we couldn’t get in touch with him I did a google search and found the obit in the FL newspaper. My last contact he told me he was coming up to Long Island for his grandsons graduation and we were going to get together. The Jokers (Royals) are now down to three.
