Letters to the Editor Curious About Canarsie's Past

Editor:

I am curious of the misadventures that occurred in Canarsie over hundreds of years. I lived there for 28 years and still visit relatives on East 95th Street.

The "mob" sure had a grip at one time on the area. The people who lived in Canarsie had no idea that the area was so mob infiltrated. In addition, Indians existed in the area until the early 20th century as revealed in archive photos. Perhaps someday archeologists will swarm into the area and dig up the past.

Please continue the good journalism.

Anthony Pattay
