Holy Rosary Church New York City’s photostream on Flickr.

Holy Rosary, located at 444 East 119th Street in East Harlem, was my family’s parish church from 1950-1967. I stumbled upon their flickr photostream today, and thought I should share it with my readers. When my older sisters were active with the CYO, they often spoke about Father Bob. Does anyone remember him? I think I have a photo of him somewhere in my archives.
