Some thoughts and reflections from my own religious exposure in NYC from my childhood, and being a NYC public school student.

When I was growing up in the 1970s in Brooklyn (Canarsie, and then Mill Basin/Flatbush), everyone was either Jewish or Catholic. Then, of course, you were either RELIGIOUS or NOT RELIGIOUS.

Eventually, I met a little girl in the 2nd grade whom I befriended, and she said that she was “Protestant”. So that made for three possible religious choices that I knew of as a kid.
