    I lived up in the heights (Hague Street) but my dad was a firefighter in the downtown area. I believe his firehouse was on Henderson Ave or maybe 4th Street? It’s gone now. I could relate to much of what you wrote about. I bought (I didn’t steal them!!!) about a dozen of your books and gave them out as gifts to friends and relatives. I moved out of Jersey City in 1970 after graduating in college (NJIT). When I get back to NJ I make a point of visiting Jersey City. It’s always fun to visit but sorry, I wouldn’t want to live there any more. :>)
