Me, Mom and Manhattan College by Bill Flynn
*** begin quote ***
After graduating high school, I moved on to Manhattan College. That fact that Manhattan College was actually located in the Bronx should have made me suspicious of the whole experience, During the summers I worked at the Breezy Point Surf Club as a cabana boy and a bartender. This was a great job. I literally made enough money from tips to pay my entire college tuition without taking any loans. When I bragged about this years later at a family party, my mother, who had been a little “over served,” chimed in that not only had I paid my tuition but also half of my brother Pat’s. What??? This was news to me. Pray tell Mom, tell me more. My mother laughed.

Tales from a Bronx Irish Family
The aim of this blog is to capture some thoughts and stories of the extended Flynn – Maher – Cullinan family regarding our lives as we grew up in the Bronx.
I realize that there are Fenesseys, O’Briens, Morans and more as well. Everybody, please feel free to chime in.
The goal is to be an uplifting and history preserving effort. Hopefully, not only will these entries be read by the current family elders but also by the youngest among us.
Keeping that in mind, let us please strive to put our best thoughts and language forward.
Regards to all.
