Steve Buscemi Looks Exactly How You’d Imagine in His Elementary-School Yearbook Photo

Steve Buscemi and my mom grew up in Valley Stream, Long Island, at the same time. They didn’t go to the same elementary school — Buscemi went to Clearstream; my mom went to Forest Road (where I also went years later) — but they shared a school district — District 30. As a result, they were in the same yearbook, which, fortunately, my mom kept. Below is a picture of little Buscemi in sixth grade, in which he looks like a spooky/cute boy who will one day grow into a spooky/cute man. Nice to meet you, Steven.
