Fred Botway Childhood Pictures and Memories

Pictures and sentiments by Andrew Cohen
(a childhood friend of Fred's from Hewlett Harbor)

Freddie and I spent a lot of time racing model HO scale cars in my basement, flying gas powered model airplanes in empty lots, and generally getting in mischievous trouble.

This picture is at my bar mitzvah reception. Seawane Club November 9th, 1968.
This is shortly before his family moved.

An interesting item... the girl (with the long hair) is the late comedian Andy Kaufman's sister Carol. She, along with a group of us, were amazed at how fast Freddie solved a numerical puzzle that someone tested us with at the reception. I can't remember the puzzle, but I do remember being amazed at that. He must have been great in math.
