Years went by and I was going to high school in the East village and one day I was walking around looking at the shops when I came across another Toy Store, it had collectible toys, posters, and to my delight Jeffrey! At the time Jeff didn’t remember me, I was now in my late teens. I had grown to be a towering young man and had learned a few things about life over the years.
Jeff and I became great friends, after school I worked at his store, I joined his Judo club, and I even was hired by him when he started his own Health food store. Jeffrey introduced me to his friends, including Marc and Roberta Grabler, and through them I found a whole host of friends. It was because of these mutual friendships that I was able to escape the ghetto, learn about art and music, learned about being a good person, and finally became the good man and father that I am today.

I lost track of Professor Jeffrey Nachamie over the years, having a family of my own and leaving New York City. From what I understand he moved to Japan, took a wife and had a son. He started the INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL HAMAMATSU where he spent his final years doing what he did best, helping children.
God Bless you Jeffrey Nachamie.
I hope you have reached your deserved paradise.
