Do any of the older contributors remember the lady from Shooters Island? I remember seeing her on the 'avenue" - Richmond Avenue in Port Richmond when I was in the 7th and 8th grade at PS 20 - 1956-1958. Common lore was that lived a hermitlike existence there and she rowed over from the island to Port Richmond to get her supplies. I remember her having very long hair and wearing long old fashioned clothing - with her coat held closed with a safety pin. Does anyone know what the story was - who she was and why she lived there.
Regarding Shooters Island - my grandmother who grew up in Mariners Harbor said that ship building was done there. That Kaiser Wilhelm's yacht had been built there. Did people live there?
