  1. Just watched the Polk (st.) video. we lived at 3644 west polk in the ’40s & 50’s. I went to Gregory School!!! starting in 1947, my brothers Gerald (Jerry) & Phillip started in 1935 & 1940.
    I was inside 2004 or so, looks just the same!!!
    Would LOVE to reconnect with neighbors & school friends.
