Nesbitt Courts

When I first moved to Nesbitt Courts in 62 they were already quite old (from the 30's opened in 40) and have many fond memories of the old place. I walked to school there with my brothers, I understand William Hooper School is no longer as well. Coming home early from that school one day in 63 I reached the back door of our apt (3-G) and our elderly neighbor behind us came running out of her apt screaming that someone had killed the president. I realised then why we'd been let out of school early. I also remember in 65 when they erected the 'senior section' in the middle square taking away our old playground. We moved a year later, glad they got another one. The first death I ever witnessed was a little girl we use to play with that was hit by a driver there on Greenfield street crossing the road to a little store where we used to buy candy. I noticed a cross in that courtyard on google earth, but it's in the wrong spot, someone else I suppose. I guess the old place has to go..but I sure hope someone takes a few pics.
