Eddie Greenberg has lived in Santa Monica for nearly six decades. He worked for the City of Santa Monica for 34 years, at the promenade—where he was the supervisor for 23 years—and also in the Street Department and Waste Water Division. Eddie remembers seeing the old SM Mall being built. He shook hands with John Kennedy in 1961 at Wilshire and 12th, when he visited in a motorcade and stepped out to greet the people. He also interviewed the Beatles in 1965.
