There’s no worse cliché than the story of a quiet little town and all of its awful secrets. I hate that stuff. People who write that garbage oughta be knocked, ‘upside the head.’
Certainly, Grossman qualified as “little” (just under five thousand) and quiet, nestled in the lower Catskill Mountain area of New York’s Hudson Valley, just far enough away from the City to stay out of real trouble, although there was that one trial. Some wealthy, local ‘do-gooder,’ had adopted a young black child and succeeded in ruining the ‘good will’ by killing the kid two years later.
Nearly every item about ‘the trial’ down in the ‘big city,’ referred to Grossman as “quiet,” or “sleepy,” or “tucked away in a forgotten corner.” That’s just the way it was back then.
