I'm gonna try to get there.I grew up in Jersey about five miles from the GW Bridge, and I can remember only being in Brooklyn (not driving through Brooklyn) once. Hey, the baseball Giants were in Manhattan. What need to go to Brooklyn??

Read the book about Whitey by the Globe reporter. Interesting fact is that Bulger's early days, one of his counsellers (not in a legal way, but more as a mentor) was Fr. Robert Drinan of BC Law and the U.S. House of Representatives.
