The year 2013 Marks the 50th year that my dear wife Judy and I have been living in the Bromley section of Hamilton in our charming and austere 1939 Cape Cod home. Over the years, and due to the proximity to the Trenton city line, the Bromley area has become the victim of "white flight." Many neighbors around us saw some sort of threat to our "lily white" Woodlawn Park neighborhood. Having been born and bred in an integrated neighborhood where "white flight" was never a consideration, we stayed the course and intend to live out the rest of our years in the home we lovel; missing our closest and intimate across the street neighbors the McLaughlins. The "newcomers" who moved into the neighborhood after the white flight exodus have proven to be personable neighbors who go about the business of being good and friendly citizens.
Above is a little vignette I put together from various graphics from my "BROMLEY" folder in the Hamilton Library Local History Collection.
