“I have a specific memory of Trick-or-Treating. I would go up and down the same block in different costumes. In the same Halloween I would have three costumes, and I’d go up and down the blocks. I would collect the same amount of candy and come back with like four pillowcases of candy… Hey, it was an easy way to not have to be travelling everywhere… just put on different costumes… in Montclair, Nutley, all the rich houses.”
