Helene Shwartz: "I was president and Paul Simon was vice president of Mrs. Costello’s second-grade class. Our major responsibility was to line up the girls ( me ) and the boys ( Paulie ) outside the bathrooms. Flipping and trading cards ( not baseball cards—they had pirates, flowers, and other things on them) in the schoolyard during recess was our most memorable activity.
Paul Simon: "When PS 164 opened, we entered the third grade. Our teacher for the next two years was Mrs. Marjorie Paris, who dug her long, red-polished fingernails into our shoulders to make us sit up. We learned penmanship in her class and the "holes for inkwells" that some of you younger alums remember had jars of ink from which we filled our fountain pens. My fingers were covered in royal blue ink.
Art Garfunkel: "Paulie and I were re-elected vice-president and president through 5th grade, when we had Mrs Agnes Stone. Our 5th grade play was about the life of the composer Stephen Foster, with Arthur Garfunkel in the title role. He sang: "I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair, born like a [and here he paused for a huge and very audible intake of breath] vapour on the summer air."

This is just too cute. Somehow it doesn’t surprise me that the boys were president and vice president of their 5th grade class. And how cute is Artie with his short curly hair? <3

Wow, this is an absolute gem!!

Paul Simon back stage with Television’s Richard Lloyd, Fred Smith and Tom Verlaine, 1977. Paul Simon was a frequent visitor to the club, despite being not remotely punk-rock. CBGB was a magnet for ’70s scenesters - Mick Jagger, Allan Ginsberg and Andy Warhol all visited at various times. Photo: Lisa J. Kristal
