My parents moved here in the forties and I live in the house that I grew up in on Dickinson Avenue. Our entire family, my siblings, my wife and two daughters, we all went through the Nyack School system and graduated from Nyack High School. My mom Harriet was a kindergarten teacher at Lake Road now Liberty Elementary School for over 25 years. She was known as the teacher in sneakers. My Dad, too, was a teacher, at BOCES in West Nyack where he started the “Electricity” class.
