Thanks for the link Raven.

A couple of us know Eric from another forum. He knows his stuff about the Lower East Side. He had his own OC forum called MOAGNYC. Last time I heard from him, he was involved in helping with a film. I want to say it was The Great Gatsby but I cannot remember. But he definitely is into the history of the LES, the Bowery, etc.
Get a sample of the book on kindle first. I don't think you will be disappointed.

That is pretty cool that some of you guys know him. I looked at a few pages on google book preview tonight and it looks interesting. Thanks for the feedback.

Raven, I thought that Eric F himself ran his site. HK and I were on it. And that Bitterqueen writer guy who at the time was very nice, went by the user name Friend of Ours, was on it also. But, now that I think about it, there's no proof that I can give that it was actually him. He and I emailed each other a few times. And like I said I was supposed to meet him in NY. But, he was busy working on some film or something. Then, he told me next time I'm in the city that I should look him up and we'll have coffee or something. So, the next time I go I'm really going to show up in person and see if he really knows who I am lmao. Wouldn't that be such a burn on me and fuckin hysterical if he says who the fuck are you? :mrgreen:

It is a pretty good book. I wonder if he still has a website? I wanted to ask him about something from the book.

Be careful meeting anyone from online in person. A lot of people aren't who they claim to be.

I just got a book called Joey about Joey Gallo written by an author named Goddard. Haven't read it yet but I am looking forward to it.

I think there is a lower east side website. Maybe he runs it , I don't know. Look online to see if you can comment or email him.

Yes, Raven. I agree. If I could meet Eric then I'd be in the part of NY, well you know how it is in the village. :lol: Ppl would be afraid of ME. I'd be around the ppl I make fun of ha ha.

Joey Joey Joey Gallo. Hope it's a good book.

I found one of the emails from him. So, maybe that's his number and website. Try it, who knows.
