Brooklyn On Line BBS - Brooklyn, NY discussion and opinion forum
I am probably older than any of you but remember quite a bit of the old neighborhood. I was born at Unity hosp. next door to Congress theater next door to candy store.Ill probably remember the name in bed tonight. There was a deli at the corner of St. Johns and Buffalo.Winicoffs luncheonette and candy storeand im still awake. I'll remember the deli name eventually also. I went to 191 and 210 and then to jeff.I,ll trade memories with anyone who can remember Kate Smith singing at our bond rally on Sterling pl between Buffalo and RAlph during ww11 with the huge banner that went across the entire street with gold stars for our young lost lives. My memory is still pretty good so contact me if you want to continue down memory lane. Wonder how many of us are still around ?
I was born in Red Hook in 1934, moved to Williamsburg in 39. Went to PS19 K-3,PS16 4-7 PS50 Jr H 7-9. Westinghouse HS. Went in service in 52 (Korea). Discharged in 56. Been in Wisconsin since 56. Get to NY to visit every few years. The Hood is getting back into decent shape, but like they always say, NY, (a great place to visit but wouldn't want to live there). Miss the great food but you need serious money to enjoy all the goodies. I rememder going to the Paramount Theatre on 43rd & Broadway to see Bob Hope with Jane Russell, Jerry Colona and others, live for probably $2.00. Also Louis Prima with Keely Smith plus many other shows. Ebbetts Field, Polo Grounds and Yankee Stadium, free PAL tickets or 60 cents for bleachers,$1.25 upper grand, $1.75 lower grand and box seats were $3.00 but we couldn't dream of box seats. Snuck in there, after a few innings. I now have season tickets in Green Bay, but what is ironic is that the first football game I ever saw was in the Polo Grounds, with the NY Yankees playing the Green Bay Packers around 1950. The Yankees had Buddy Young as their star. Yankees then moved to Texas and became the colts, then moved to Baltimore and on to Indianapolis, this years super bowl champions. Saw all of Vince Lombardi's home games as the Packer coach. I remember wondering where the hell is Green Bay, said to my buddy, out west with the Indians. Tony
I lived on St. Johns Place near Schenectady and would go to the Congress often. I remember the long lobby and a balcony (elegant when compared to the Utica Theatre I regularly visited). I recall the Unity Hospital and that at least on our block it had a poor reputation (and in fact I was ill served there myself). My dentist Dr. Borowitz was just around the corner from the Congress. I too went to 210 (John Marshal JHS) and remember Mrs. Berlin, Misses DeForest, Farley,and Shantz. You were in the Thomas Jefferson H.S. zone, and I in the Samuel J. Tilden. Sorry, I didn't get to the Kate Smith rally, but she was always a favorite. Did you listen to her daily 15 min (I think) show?
