After Barry's mom Edna married Willie Murphy. Barry was given the option of staing with Joe and Estheror moving in with Edna and Willie.

Barry chose to move in with Willie and Edna. Willie and Edna bought an apartment on Keep St. in Williamsburg. So Barry did go to Eastern District High. EDHS was located at 227 Keep St. Brooklyn NY 11211. EDHS is now called Progress High School it is combined with two other high schools that makeup Progressive High School for Professional Careers

I went to JHS 50 with Barry I even have him in my year book. I lived in Williamsburg as he did. I can remember him always singing going into hallways to sing. I also remember you could have went to a school out of you neighborhood.

Thanks for letting me share.

Eastern District High use to be located on Keep Street before it moved. Barry was given a choice

to either stay with his grandparents or move with Edna and Willie.That was after Edna and Willie got married. Barry chose the latter. Edna and Willie moved to an apartment that was also on Keep Street.

I can answer almost any question about Barry`s music and videos: Content, lyrics, instruments, arrangements. You know -- the important stuff! ***PLEASE NOTE: I don't work for Barry or his organizations. I don't know him personally. I'm like that guy on PBS that talks about Mozart, the knowledge is based on 35 years of study, not from any insider information. *** --JB


40 years of collecting his music and being a fan. I also own an extensive collection of recordings, interviews, books, magazines and rarities for Barry Manilow.
