  1. These recent posts are great Joanne—thank you for sending them! An irony: right on the alley corner of Brooklyn lives a family whose daughter once went to my final school, Bruce PS. Her name: Brooklyn! She’d be in her 20s by now. Passed her mom just a few weeks ago. The Principal back at Bruce during my last years there was Jonathan Root, and he and his partner also live on Brooklyn, but on the far corner (i.e. @ Pape). Btw, that same girl’s bestie was the daughter of the original owners of Brick St. bakery, a family that lived right behind us on Austin. They eventually sold the biz and moved north of the city. What do you think of the new parkette with its historic photo at the end of our street Badgerow/Carlaw? cheers Gregg LaMarsh
