My name is Steve Silverman. I was born in Brooklyn, NY. That's a
picture of me at birth on the left.
When I turned eight years old, my parents picked up and moved to the boonies - the tiny town of Thompsonville, NY. (Not too far from the site of the 1969 Woodstock concert). Don't drive through the town too fast - if you blink you will miss it. Thompsonville only has two businesses - the U. S. Post Office and the semi-famous Raleigh Hotel. (One of the few remaining Borscht Belt hotels). I attended the Monticello Central School district, but my solid B average and typical teenage lack of motivation assured that I would win no awards at the graduation ceremony. (Unless you include perfect attendance in my senior year). Check out my yearbook picture on the right. (You have to laugh at that one.)
