Fifty Years Ago in East Flatbush: First Birthday Party at 120 East 43rd Street

On January 7, 1956, our family had a first birthday party for our brother Marc at the apartment of our maternal grandparents, Herb and Ethel Sarrett, in East Flatbush, where we also lived. Above, a pic of us blowing out Marc's candle on the birthday cake, with our grandparents and Michael Sarrett, our grandfather's brother Abe's son, who lived around the corner with his parents and our great-grandmother, Bubbe Ita (Yetta Saretsky, shown below with us and Marc).
