Kristen Hanson

I am looking for any information on Bungalow bar ice cream trucks, the toy trucks in particular, or even the real trucks, or anything having to with bungalow bar, wrappers, etc. Money is no object. Please e-mail with any information.

Robert Morett (Moretzsky)

93rd and Winthrop. Just a random list of a great childhood and youth: the Sutter Theater for 12 cents; walking to and on Pitkin Avenue; P.S. 219, Winthrop J.H.S. and of course the crown of them all. S. J. Tilden; Chinese handball, box ball, stick ball, stoop ball, etc., etc., etc. So many things happening all the time. Moved from there in 1953 but always in my fondest memories.

Benjamin Tropiansky

I need to see photos of my old neighborhood of East Flatbush, particularly Church Ave. and the trolleys that rolled past East 55th St. on their way towards Utica Ave. and beyond. . . . Any suggestions?.

My Brooklyn may only exist in my memory, but it was the best place in the world to live and be a kid. I lived on Avenue Y and East 13th Street from age 3 to 10. I attended P.S. 209, on Coney Island Avenue and Avenue Z. Chinese food meant "Joy Joy" on Sheepshead Bay Road; Italian food was cooked to perfection at Russo's on Coney Island Avenue, where Mama Russo worked the kitchen and her sons were the waiters. Great pizza at the subway station. Penny candy, John's Bargain Store, Kay's kiddy shop. . . . Everyone was either Catlick or Jooish. Massive games of freeze tag in the Nautilus courtyard. Friends lived in Atlantic Towers. Would love to hook up with fourth grade class members from Mrs. Hochberg's IGC class, circa 1967-68.
