Yorkville Twins May 14

May Breakfast Club at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 14, features Yorkville Twins. Take a unique trip down memory lane with a humorous and endearing collection of stories involving immigrants, survival, growing up, coming of age, and learning what it is to be an American. More than a mere presentation, it is an experience, a love story of family, friends, neighbors and neighborhood.

Twin brothers Joseph and John Gindele spent their first 18 years growing up on the rough streets of Yorkville on Manhattan’s Upper East Side more than 60 years ago. This is their story – what the city was like then, how it changed, and how two kids from immigrant parents became accomplished Minnesota teachers.
