Three friends from my days at PS 83 and Oliver Wendell Holmes Junior High School 204 in Long Island City were in New York for their Stuyvesant High School reunion. They gave me a call (even though I attended Stuyvesant's rival for most nerdy high school, the Bronx High School of Science) and we met at the Bel Aire Diner in Astoria (we grew up in the neighborhood near the Bel Aire that is on the border between Long Island City and Astoria). I hadn't seen these guys in 43 years, so it was a wonderful reunion. Clockwise from front left: Donald Brichta is a PR executive in Massachusetts, Me, Marty Siegel is a realtor in the Twin Cities whose son is going to William and Mary, and Arthur Henick, also a PR executive and former PR aide to Governor Lowell Weicker. We were all wondering what happened to Helen Chin! It was well worth the 2.5 hour drive!
