Retired New Haven teacher Frank Carrano grew up in Wooster Square, the youngest (and only boy) of 8 children. They lived above the family grocery and fruit market on Chapel Street.  Frank's fascinating memories are featured in his article in the Feb. 12 issue of the New Haven Register. Great read!

Thank you, Frank, for sharing your memories!
