Anyone out there from the graduation class of Thos.
Jefferson in 1956????   I know we're still kicking. 
Especially East New Yorkers.  One tough bunch. 
So.....anyone from that period???  Miller Ave, Bradford
Street, Wyona, New Lots, Penn. Ave..

Although I attended Jefferson from 1959-1962, I was in the
PS 182 graduating class in 1956. It was so strange to find
someone from ENY! Most all the postings I see are from other

I lived at 587 Bradford St, between Riverdale and Livonia
from 1944 through 1965. We moved to Staten Island right
after the Verazzano was built. 

Phyllis, your name sounds familiar. Did you know the
Bluth's, Troyansky's, or the Balbera family? Do you remember
Rosie's Luncheonette on Wyona and Riverdale, or Rodger's Ice
Cream Parlor near Bressner's?

I also attened JHS 149. I just heard that 182 was turned
into an apartment building! How sad...

If anyone would care to write, I will gladly answer emails.

Missing Brooklyn more than ever,

Lynn, Astonishing.  We're about the same age. And I lived
almost back-to-back with you at 652 Miller Ave.  I left PS
182 and ENY during the sixth grade in 1954, moving to the
country (Laurelton Queens). My older sister Carole had just
started Jefferson that year. Both my parents were graduated
from Jefferson.  As a kid, my mother's pal at JHS 149 was
some crazy kid who became Danny Kaye.

Hi fellow Brooklynites! I went to PS 182, Jr. HS 149 and
graduated Jefferson in 1962.  I lived on New Jersey Ave.,
between Sutter and Blake.  I know Lynn (Troyansky) Arroyo
from all three schools and I see she has posted here--Hi
Lynn. Memories: Mrs. Levy's,the small candy shop/book
supplies store on Vermont Ave. & Dumont, right across from
182.  Everybody bought their candy there and book
supplies--cannot remember the name of the store. Mrs. Levy
was an elderly, tiny, but sharp lady. Everyone knew not to
try to steal in her store!! The knish vendor right in front
of her store and for 10 cents you got the best tasting
ever (he was an old man with an old steel cart; these days
wonder where the heck he got those knishes, but they were
simply delicious).  Jack's candy store on Sutter Ave. &
Vermont, across from 149--the best egg creams and malteds
earth. The popular hangout on the corner of Pennsylvania &
Livonia Aves., where all the Jefferson "jocks" hung out,
across from Jefferson Field (can't remember the name, am
getting too old!). The movie theater on Livonia Ave., where
they sold dinner sets, one piece a week.  Oh, the memories.
