A New York Story

Catch them two decades down the road and they'll talk about how they almost wound up going down a bad path before they turned their lives around and they'll have stories of their friends who went from mugging to dealing to shooting. But often those same men, now amiable and wise, shaking their heads at their past selves, will still have left behind a trail of fatherless kids who are repeating the process all over again.

There's actually a lot more to this story.  He paints a clear and full picture of what it was like to be in the Jewish neighborhoods of NYC.
