Neighbors recently welcomed Andy Bein and Bella Blackman to Fourth Avenue. Both are retired. For 23 years, Andy, a native of New York City, taught in the social work department at Sacramento State University.
When not out hiking, he does clinical supervision and leads seminars. Bella was a nurse and midwife. Now she volunteers at a nature center.
They raised their two children in their Land Park home, which they had planned to remodel. However, when their longtime friend Susan Orr died, Andy and Bella opted to move into her home instead of enduring a remodel.
