-  Summary of audio segment: Angelo moved out of Paterson in 1953, and moved to Haledon. He married in Paterson in 1940. They had a boy and a girl, when the boy was 10 years old and the girl was three years old they moved out here. His wife liked to garden. His house is built in an area that used to be a big farm. In 1953 they found out about it and they still had two lots left and so they grabbed this one, built the house. Moved in here on December 26, the day after Christmas in 1953. They had a tree here too, of course, "so we had to ditch the one in Paterson. It was cold, cause here we're higher up."
