Local Hero: Stewie Brokowsky

Stewie grew up with me in Knickerbocker Village. His family had (among other businesses) a fruit store on Catherine, between Madison and Monroe Street. Stewie wasn't fleet a foot, but he was pretty swift with the ladies. He was also always good for a laugh. According to my pal Richard Karney, he may have been first amongst us to strike nooky gold. For that, and the fact that he is currently in a heroic fight with liver cancer, he is a LES local hero. That's him with his beautiful wife along with his little league picture as an insert.
