But I saw a street called Myrtle Avenue, from Borough Hall to Fresh Pond Road, and down this street no saint ever walked (else it would have crumbled), down this street no miracle ever passed, nor any poet.’ Henry Miller, Tropic of Capricorn 
#StillLifeWithSaints
Myrtle Avenue from Glendale to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, with its plentiful beer gardens and parks to the Ridgewood movie theater was the young, emigrated Nicola Paolantonio’s new New York neighborhood. Myrtle at Wyckoff Avenues in Richmond Hill, Kew Gardens, Queens played heavily in the daily rounds of my young father’s perambulations. My parents married in the crypt of the local parish of Saint Rita on Shepherd Avenue. #StillLifeWithSaints
