The neighbors were thankful for Dadís help in saving their cows and horses, and a friendship sprang up.† They had a baby daughter who was about the same age as my sister, and we would often gather at their house or they at ours.† They had fled the madness of New York City for the safety and calm of the country, and itís hard to imagine a greater contrast, even forty years later, between Manhattan and the place where I grew up.† Local gossip had it that the neighbors had Mob connections, but I never learned if that was true.
