  1. Sarah is correct, it’s Fulton Street before it was renovated. I can see my building in the middle.
    Fulton Street was all warehouses and packing companies until the mid 70’s.
    There was Genoa Packing, Providence Packing, Abramo Re and many others.
    Honey Fitz was born on Ferry Street where the nursing is now located.

  2. Has a real familiar look, except no street lamps and trees. Pretty sure I can recognize the places as they are now, but sure has changed. I thought Honey Fitz was from Moon St? There is a plaque in a building there saying Rose Kennedy born here.

  3. Yes, it is Fulton Street~~~I can point out my building also~~~~What an exciting adventure to have gone through ~~~from 1970 ~~~1972 or so, to the present day !! That was a great blast from the past~~thank you Nick !!
