Longfellow Avenue on which I lived was
absolutely beautiful. It is on borderline of South Orange and Newark
and the last street in Newark on that side of South Orange Avenue.
It was a tree lined street with single family homes, beautiful lawns
and gardens. Each morning you woke up to the smell of honeysuckles
and lilacs blooming and scent of dew on the grass. My father had
one of the most beautiful gardens and neighbors stopped as they
passed by to admire it and the roses he grew.
I was once photographed by a Newark News photographer at Boylan
St Pool when they were there to cover a story about the pool and
summer activities. It later appeared in the newspaper. I've lost
that newspaper clipping and was wondering if there is a way to get
a copy of it? Please tell me if you have any ideas.
I was about 10 yrs at the time. Born in 1950 and lived in different
parts of Newark prior to Vailsburg and have many memories.
