Valley Stream!

I grew up in Valley Stream!

"They call this place Valley Stream. What a joke. One little jail after another with 10 feet of grass between them. Valley Stream, I hate it here. If we get enough money we can go... some place far away from here. Someplace nice, not Valley Stream."

And... here is a great story. I now live in Chelsea, in NYC. Shirley Stoler (Martha Beck in that scene) lived around the corner from me, on 8th Avenue. I used to bump into her all the time. I had a nice conversation with her one day in a store. She was a lovely woman. Sadly, she passed away in 1999.
