If Murray Avenue means anything to you...
Then you have to watch this. It is actually just part one of three. Together, they are pure gold, a documentary of lower Murray Ave circa 1980. Featured business are Silberberg Bakery, Eddie's Newsstand and Fogels' Kosher Butcher. Anyone who grew up in Pittsburgh with me, or earlier should remember them all well.
