Eugene likes to read. He doesn’t need television to be entertained. He told us a saying, “The library is the temple of learning.”
“If you walk up and down Park Street you will find businesses run by all different kinds of people: Japanese, Latino, Chinese, Caucasian, Black, and European-American, and still many more. The Greenbush neighborhood has every different kind of culture you can imagine.”
