Welcome. I still remember you and your brother. Hope you are well.

Thanks for posting the photos Renee Aronin. You were a semester ahead of me in Mr. Galitzer's 6th grade class. He was absolutely the best teacher I ever had (including HS and college) and I suspect you feel that way too.
Many years later I ran into him again at my daughter's middle school.
I returned on conference day and talked to him for over an hour. He remembered in detail every student he ever had. He knew more about my friends that I even did. Hope you are well.

NY tour was run by the Meyer & Dietel agency and we stayed in the Edison Hotel. I recall spending time with Michael Lerner, Connie Fox and Howard Tarnoff. I stole this hanger from the hotel. My wife and I go to NY every year and once even stayed at the Edison. I even considered returning the hanger but thought better of it.

OK folks> Who went on that class trip to NY in 1966? It got my career as a photographer started . First time I ever used a 35mm camera and I've been behind the lens ever since.

Very,very shocked to learn the news when I did a Google search for his obituary. I knew him since grade school and he was my mentor. My life-long career was started from his teaching and encouragement.
