Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
I just read the intro to your book Four Hoboken Stories and really perked up. My dad was the Judge who rented you the loft apt on Hudson St. in Hoboken, Judge Rudolph Naddeo. What a surprise it was to read of your experience. Did you give my parents a painting with lots of color? It is still hanging in their house, but they have both died.
If you answer this I will be thrilled. If you don't, I will still believe you have read it.
