Sheldon Sid Brodkin Author- BORO PARK, VEGAS AND ALL THE IN-BETWEENS

BORO PARK, VEGAS AND ALL THE IN-BETWEENS

by Sheldon Sid Brodkin

BORO PARK, VEGAS AND ALL THE IN-BETWEENS is a work of fiction, but loosely based on the life of a long-time friend of the author.

It is a story about two boyhood friends growing up on the rough streets of Brooklyn, NY in the 1920’s; one destined to be an outstanding athlete, the other, the son of a member of “La Familia”, begin the road to the true beginning of casino gaming in Nevada in the 1930’s.

STOOPDRAMER & OTHER WINDSOR TERRACE STORIES

by Pat Fenton

8:00 PM

(Through 6/18/2011)

Journalist and playwright, Pat Fenton, will take us back to his old neighborhood with a company of actors performing a dramatic reading of his play about a lost part of Windsor Terrace. Once a teeming, tight-knit, Irish and Italian blue-collar neighborhood that existed around 17th Street and 9th Avenue before Robert Moses drove the Prospect Expressway through the very heart of it in 1953, and divided it forever.
