Close to you

My wife and I often walk down this portion of 5th Street between Downey Ave and Brookshire. These two apartment buildings bring back memories of days when "Close to You" and "Only Just Begun" were hits on my AM radio.

The musical group, The Carpenters, were "the biggest selling group of the 70's." You can read more of their bio here. The Downey Library also has a permanent display of the Carpenters' music on display in the library's foyer.

What memories of the Carpenters do you have?
