Left to right, here are my Uncle Jack Reid, grandmother Mary Reid, and Uncle Tom Reid, outside their home, at 13 Joval Court.
Jack was very prominent in the NYPD, especially with the Police Athletic League (coached many great track & field athletes, several of whom became Pan American & Olympic Games Champions.) Tom was in the OSS during WWII, becoming ultimately becoming the highest ranking uniformed policeman in the NYPD (fluent in Italian, he headed the NYPD Organized Crime Division, and also was Deputy Chief Inspector of South Manhattan. Among many other events, he was very notably connected with the investigation with the assassination of Joe Columbo.) (Courtesy Anne Delean)
