Description

This is a story about Absecon island in southern New Jersey. The island consists of four Municipalities—Atlantic City, Ventnor City, Margate City, and Longport. It is essentially autobiographical and covers the years from 1904 to 1963. It tells the story of my mother and father’s history and my grandparent’s lives on Absecon island. It also includes talk about my childhood in Ventnor City and my musical career in Atlantic City—born in 1938, I played music professionally in Atlantic City from 1953 to 1963, when I left the southern New Jersey area. The story addresses the life and vibrancy of the island and my family from my perspective only, showing the fancy, the seedy, the seamy, and in-between. It also relates the attitudes of local people, anti-Semitism, and businesses in the area.
