David Bosniack and his wife, Eve, moved from Scotch Plains, New Jersey to Daylesford Crossing in Wayne this past August to be closer to family. Shortly after moving in, they realized their new neighbors, Carl and Nancy Bruhns, also had roots up I-95.
Little did they know that as they got to know each other, six degrees of separation would become more like six inches.
David and Carl were the same age. Both were raised in the Bronx, and both graduated from DeWitt Clinton, an all-boys high school at the time with an enrollment of about 4,000.
Luckily, Carl’s wife Nancy still had that high school yearbook and, after checking the 1950 Clintonian, found that their senior portraits appeared on the same page.
A remarkable coincidence has turned into a wonderful new friendship, just in time for the holidays.
