Hi, I grew up in the area

Hi, I grew up in the area also. I was born at Cumberland & Cedar, moved to Tulip & Montgomery and when my brothers were born we all moved to Colona St. About 15 years ago I moved back to Cumberland St. and I also reside in the farmlands of NC. I would bet our path crossed at one time or another. Welcome to the friendly forums of Fishtown Us .

Welcome!

I wish the days when nobody had to lock their doors were still around.

Hi, You have another

Hi,
You have another Fishtowner here who was originally from Norris & Aramingo(south side where FT officially ends)I spent many years in Herring Heights or Flat Iron as we true neighborhood people so fondly remember.When my oldest brother married he moved over to Cumberland & Almond.His son married his Flatiron sweetheart and they bought a home at Gaul & Hazzard.They moved across the bridge about two years ago but are looking to come back to neighborhood.I guess the old adage stil holds true you can take the kid out of Fishtown/Flatiron but you can never take Fishtown/Flatiron out of the kid.Yes,I remember the days when we never locked our doors and to tell you the truth there are more times then not when I don't lock mine.I have always felt safe in these areas and still take dog out for walk at 2/3 in am or run around to CVS at same time.I guess old habits are hard to break.Welcome,it is always good to know old neighbors are still around

hi, thanks for the reply.

hi, thanks for the reply. yes they were the good ol' days, for sure. i sometimes think i have a false sense of security also, not being careful enough. i guess it's just a way of life. oh well, take care, it is nice to remember it the way it was.

I just started locking my door last summer, because someone close to us went into my house and stole my Johnny's entire Summer pay ($3,500) and his Ipod. The only time I ever locked my door was when I went on Vacation and Last Summer, I came home from Jamaica and my door was unlocked (I forgot to lock it) Everything was in it's place, nothing was missing. The money didn't go missing until he started school =( So I learned my lesson, and was forced to admit that sometimes the People Closet to you are the ones you have to lock your doors from.......

yes, you are so right, it's

yes, you are so right, it's a hard leson to learn, that someone close to you could betray you , it hurt's so much to realize this & i am very much brokenhearted over something similiar happening to myself, by letting my guard down, and thinking that someone close to you would never betray your trust, but , sorry to say it also happened to me, and with someone that i would never in my wildest dreams imagine doing anything like that. it's sad but a true fact of life, that no one can realy be trusted totally. sad but true. even locking your doors doesn't help sometimes.
