Enhancing the story

Dear editor,

It is always a pleasure to read one of Bill Twomey’s reprinted Bronx history articles in the Bronx Times Reporter. They are always informative and they remind me of my dear friend Bill, how much he meant to me and many others.

It was especially nice to read the article where Bill mentioned me and Nick DiBrino, whose 80th Birthday party we recently celebrated. That story was about the historic St. Philip’s Protestant Episcopal Church Parish House, converted from a school in 1896. Sadly, only a photo of the empty lot was used by Bill that he took on December 3, 2010.

I have attached a photo of the Parish House from the week before, as mentioned by Bill when we were all there before it was torn down. I think your readers would what to know “ the rest of the story”. Thank you for keeping Bill close to us.
