    Hi Gerry,

    I read your article on the Irwins of Hells Kitchen and was surprised to learn that they lived near my Irwin relatives. My grandfather was Joseph Irwin (1872-1948). They lived on 10th Ave. between 43rd and 44th st. Just wondering if you came across them in your research?

    Gerry Regan,

    I wanted to inform you that a member with the name of James Pollard has just tried scamming with an "lost inheritance scam". I just want to urge you to please let folks know. This guy says something about a long lost relative that recently died and has no known heirs and then goes on to say he wants 50% and that I would need to keep it a secret. I have a copy of the email he sent. I do take full responsibility for communicating with someone from this forum with my own personal email on myself, that was stupid on my part.

    "Daniel P Quinn has captured a bygone era with such detailed, loving, bittersweet accuracy.
    Such family memories - and they are rich indeed, considering he hails from two such vibrant, singularly civilized cultures ...
    Irish- and Italian-American; no fooling around! The old Newark comes alive in his poignant, celebrating words ... 
    as does the glory that was Paterson, NJ, birthplace of American industry ... 
    -- Hey, it/they - still is/are, both these wonderful, bustling, BUSY New Jersey cities! eh, all? in their 20th century heydays ...
    Phoenixes now rising from the strong, struggling and WONDERFULLY PERSEVERING "ashes ..."?
     - Nope; the people of Newark since the "White Flight," post-WWII,
     are every bit as validly vibrant as those who came before, let's face it, eh? 
    -- It's just a rapidly e'er changing mixture of eras we are so challenged to be negotiating,
     we Americans and we globally over-populated, fascinating yet always goofy-enough humans ... 
    Bravo to all who appreciate the seemingly boundless energy, spirit and enterprise that is Newark.
    Thank you, Mr. Quinn, for bringing the pre-21st century Newark once again to such sweet, happy life ... a rewarding, compelling, intensely-personally-felt trip down Memory Lane, indeed".
