Your Bio

This is the home of a large collection of photos of La Salle Academy, formerly located on Second Street and Second Avenue in New York City. They document a period roughly from 1968 to 1973. I extend belated thanks to the La Salle students who helped in shooting the thousands of frames making up this collection -- Marc Neal, Mike Hazard, Andres Valdespino, Louis Gomez, Jose Ballester, Dennis Doherty, Willie Mason and others whose names my enfeebled brain is no longer able to recall. Photos from the La Salle Academy collection are being added regularly. Please leave comments -- I live for comments! If you leave your e-mail address in the comments, I'll get back to you.

The photo above shows myself when young. It was taken during the 1968-69 academic year.

One of the features of this website is the ability to download full-size images. You can also order prints -- look for where it says "Buy" above the image. Prints are offered at cost, of course -- I don't make any money doing this, nor do I want to. In fact, I squander my substance on cameras (nine digital cameras so far), film-scanners, and imaging software. But that's what I like to do. Incidentally, for really cheap prints, download the original full-size photos and upload them to one of the web print services for printing, like Adoramapix or PhotoDirect.

In addition to the La Salle photographs, I'm posting others of possible interest to friends and associates (family, Ridgewood, New York City, etc.).

I can be contacted at "pcullinan", followed by an at-sign, followed by "verizon.net". I can be reached by phone at 718-366-4873 or 347-263-6294 (cell).

Live Jesus in our Hearts! Forever!

Pat Cullinan, Jr.

50th Anniversary of the Class of 1960, Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School Of course, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Of these, I will be using Photoshop to adjust the color, brightness, cropping, etc. The process will take several weeks. Or months.
