Come! Come sit by the fire and lets look at some family photos together. This is La Famiglia Monteforte. My grandpa is the dashing child in the middle. Great-grandma Ana was a wealthy dame in her time (her mother even more so...couldn't even speak English!) and owned 16 houses on North 5th and 9th Streets in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Great Grandpa lost it all on the tracks..pffffff (TMI?)
This is the boys (Grandpa, Frankie and Jimmy) in front of their home on North 5th St.
