Personally, I have no memories of living in New York, having spent only the first few weeks of my life there.

We did drive through fairly often during my early childhood. I remember there were still horse drawn wagons in use there, and a lot of electric flatbed trucks. I saw all the great ocean liners of the day, as we passed under their bows. I always wanted to see a battleship. As a small child, I thought it would be really huge. Once there was one at one of the docks, but to my surprise, it was so low I could not see the hull, only the superstructure.
