Welcome to My Italian Harlem.com!

NICKNAME HALL OF FAME

THE NICKNAMES THAT I HAVE LISTED  SPAN THREE GENERATIONS. THE FIRST NAME LISTED IS THAT OF MY FATHER,ALBERT PUCO, WHO WAS BORN IN 1924 AT 306 E.110TH STREET. THE RANGE OF YEARS ARE FROM THE TURN OF THE CENTURY, UP TO THE 1960'S. THEY ARE NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. THEY ARE EITHER NAMES OF PEOPLE THAT MY FATHER KNEW, OR FRIENDS OF MY 3 SISTERS, CATHY,CAROL ANN & MARGARET.
 I WAS A CHILD WHEN WE LIVED ON THE 5TH FLOOR OF 505 E.118TH, SO I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO "REALLY" GROW UP IN EAST HARLEM. WE MOVED TO CITY ISLAND IN THE FALL OF 1966. ALTHOUGH MY MEMORIES OF EAST HARLEM MOSTLY STEM FROM WITHIN "APARTMENT 10" AND MY "WINDOW VIEWS," I STILL RETAIN A STRONG FAMILIAL CONNECTION AND A GREAT FONDNESS FOR MY OLD NEIGHBORHOOD. 
AFTER ALL, THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE MY GREAT- GRANDPARENTS SETTLED WHEN THEY LEFT ITALY. THEIR COURAGE TO LEAVE THEIR MOTHER COUNTRY, AS WELL AS THEIR TENACIOUS HARD WORK AND SACRIFICE, ARE EMBEDDED IN MY MIND'S EYE. I WILL NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF MY BIRTHPLACE AND EARLY BEGINNINGS, AND THE BIRTHPLACE OF MY FATHER AND HIS SIBLINGS AS WELL. ITALIAN HARLEM/EAST HARLEM IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF ME. IT IS IN MY THOUGHT-PROCESS, AND WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART:) 

 IF YOU HAVE ANY NAMES TO ADD TO THIS PAGE, EMAIL THEM TO ME,OR GO TO MY GUESTBOOK PAGE AND WRITE A MESSAGE TO ME, AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO INCLUDE THEM:-)
