Broadway, Schrafft??s and Seeded Rye??"Growing Up Slightly Jewish on the Upper West Side, is a lighthearted memoir, by the author of How to Succeed at Aging Without Really Dying, about growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the 1930's and early 1940's. Through essays and poems, histories and vintage photos, Lyla Blake Ward makes this unique neighborhood-- 72nd street to 110th-- east and west of Broadway, come alive.
Looking back-- and back---and back,, she is able to recapture the atmosphere of this singular community, its culture and the families who lived there--a place, according to the author, where almost everyone she knew was Jewish and only the pigeons ate white bread.
