Each concrete level leading up to the screen door of Ben DiSalvo's Market in Madison, Wisconsin, was a challenge. There was no way of knowing back then that each step taken was not only an achievement of sorts for a small child but also a giant step in the right direction. Every moment from that particular day seemed to be stored within the author's cache of childhood memories. Life in the Greenbush neighborhood managed to move up a notch. With it, pride flourished as the ethnically diverse settlement grew more rapidly than the rest of Madison. But as good as it was, or seemed to be, the negative side weighed heavily, causing concern among the city fathers and women's social organizations. Residents enjoyed bragging that what they had predicted earlier was indeed happening.
