From the back cover

Amityville sits just 40 miles from the hustle and bustle of New York City, but in the 1950s and 60s it had a simpler pace.  It was truly a wonderful confluence of time, place and people where kids were free to grow up in a very natural way.  These time softened memories recall a less structured childhood, quite different from the more purposeful school age environment of today.  Less parental involvement and direction stimulated an organic approach to how we found our way through adolescence.  The result was a rich set of experiences that made us what we are today.
