Mount Loretta - Friendship Club Alice Pike Vita To answer your question 58 years ago it was an orphanage. I had 2 brothers and one sister in there. I resided at Mt. St. Michael along with 2 more brothers which was also an orphanage. You could only stay there until you were 16 years old. Its was run by Nuns. What I remember the most was there was never enough food and the cold hard wood floor dormitory. I did manage to go to Tottenville High School. The truth of the matter is I can hardly remember any of it and never could. It's was blocked from my memory bank a very long time ago.A LoSacco.
