Growing Up in New York City
Topic: Growing Up in New York
Anthony Fauci: Well I grew up in an inner city neighborhood called the Benson Hurst section of Brooklyn, which was a very embracing, warm, family-type neighborhood.
From the time I was born, and getting to know my friends and interacting in the community, there was always a feeling of people taking care of each other. So I think that was one of probably many factors that got me involved in what my ultimate career choice was, in medicine, and ultimately taking care of people.
But the atmosphere in which I grew up – not only from a family standpoint, but from the people that you contacted or came into contact with at any given time during the day – was one of a lot of warmth and positive interaction.
