Writing about New York in the 70s

Just finished reading The Dakota Winters, an engaging book not just because of the story line but also because it’s set in Manhattan’s upper west side in 1979, which coincides with the time of my memoir-in-progress.  A novel by Tom Barbash, The Dakota Winters  story touches many places and events familiar to anyone who lived or worked in New York City then.

Thanks to #JenniferHaskin for pushing me to get back onto social media with my reading and writing!

The photo above is LOWER Manhattan, and the tall white building on the right is the center of my crossbar tandem experience – the Pearl Street location of what was then New York Telephone.  And yes, it will be featured in my memoir along with the telephone people I worked with there.
