Lists can be fascinating. Many senior citizens such as myself have their Bucket Lists, but I have always enjoyed creating and perusing lists. When I was a youngster I could recite the top-10 homerun hitters of all time, the longest rivers and the stations on the Long Island Rail Road from Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan to Hicksville, the stop nearest Levittown. Do you remember the conductor shouting, "Change at Jamaica?" I even ranked my favorite Major League baseball teams and players. This blog entry is a list.

To amuse myself and to illustrate a point, I have created a list of states in which early Division Avenue High School alumni (1960-63) reside at the present time. There is only one person shown per state. The idea is to simply provide an idea of how spread out we have become. All are 1960 graduates unless otherwise noted.

My research indicates that New York has the largest contingent, followed by Florida with California distant third. Maiden names are used for women.

California: Russ Green
