*Here's a quote from Tom Webber's Book, "Flying over 96th Street."  "I carry East Harlem within me wherever I go just as surely as I carry my likes and dislikes, my beliefs and values. Yes, I'm an American. Yes, I'm English and a little Irish and who knows what else. But I'm more than just plain old white. I'm Tom of 105th Street, Tom of the Wilson Houses, Tom of El Barrio. I can diddy-bop, give skin, hold my own in a sounding match, eat bacalao with relish, and speak some pointed Spanish. I've been changed and molded by the neighborhood, taken El Barrio, like the air I breathe, into my blood. At my core, in my hearts of hearts, in my corazon, I'm an East Harlem White Boy." *
