Re: Flushing, anyone?

I found this 1992 picture that has Gloria's Pizza in the background (unfortunately I took this with a disposable camera). Right by the bus stop and subway entrance, really the ideal location for a Pizza store. I know since I once worked in a pizza store on the corner of Sutphin Blvd and Hillside Ave. in Jamaica - that place was hoppin'.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Played on the Flushing Mets in the 60's I was the only black kid in the league..Alley Pond Park Field!!!



[quote=_patrick]Flushing

I grew up in Flushing but I am now a adopted Texas Native. I spent my early years on Blossom Ave. I loved the Worlds Fair as I was just five when it open I thought i would be there for ever. But when it ended we all enjoyed the prk that was left. I attene ps 120, and Rachel Carson I.S. The first year that it was open and we onley had a seventh grade. During that summer we moved to 147th and northern blvd. I attend I.S.237 for 8th and 9th grade. I attend Frace Lewis HS for my 10th grade before moving to Arizona.

I enjoyed the park and the Botanical Gardens on Main street. Two summers I had a youth garden in the park we worked on it every sat. form spring until fall.

I played little leauge baseball for the Flushing Mets. Yes I do remeber Dimaigo's on Nothern blvd.It was a family type place. I meet serveral of the new york met there and they were happy to meet with fans and to sign an autograh them back in tha day.(boy I feel old.)does any rember Herty gerty- the hot dog shop on Roosevlt by the subway station. We would meet mom there afterwork when she got off of the subway had dinner than would shop and walk home.

Yea, times have changed we could run tought any of the parks till 10:00pm or later on weekends. Take bus all over like visitng friends in bay terrace and taking the last bus at midnight.

Now i have to drive my teenagers every where it seems as times have changed and buses in texas are a joke!!!![/quote]

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Joel, glad to see another old Flushingite!  I have posted in this thread before so you can find my history.

I am 46 years old, live on Long Island, still visit FLushing on Occasion.  I went to St. MAry's Catholic School but alot of my friends I hung out with and played ball with went to PS 24.  I think I went there also for Kindergarden.

I only played a littel ball in the Colden Field park behind Kissena Blvd. but most of my time was at Kissena Park (I am probably the most nostalgic about Kissena PArk around here), and probably still see your old area when I visit my dentist on Kissena Blvd once a year.

Welcome and sorry about Maurice.

P.S. I posted on this site several years ago and had to re-register because I forgot my old password.  My old posts can be found under "Tripacer" in the search function (archives).  Tripacer is the name of my airplane that I flew into Flushing Airport (no longer in existence) back in the early seventies.  It was a quick way to get from my home in Huntington, WV to visit my family in Flushing, Jamaica and Port Washington.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Tripacer, You are 25 years older than me, so I consider you my elder although I think there may be older people on these boards.  I know many are retired.

I lived on 160th street just off of 46 Ave with my Mom during college years until I got married and moved to Nassau. What intersection did you live on?  And when did your family move out (or are they still there?).

Glad to see another FLushingite here!  I still pass through the town as I drive to work in Manhatten.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Mad Sci Guy:
The house where my brother, sister and I were raised is half way between Northern Blvd. and 35th Ave on the east side of 161st Street.  My parents moved from there to Southbury, CT in 1974.  I took my wife to Flushing two years ago to show her the house and my old neighborhood. The house is now owned by a Korean couple who publishes a local Korean language newspaper.    The lady happened to be on the front steps when we stopped across the street.  My wife suggested I go over and introduce myself and I said it might frighten her.  Nonetheless, my wife crossed the street and explained that I grew up in the house.  Surprisingly, she invited us in and gave us a grand tour.  She showed us pictures of her grown children all of whom were raised there.  The house is in excellent condition. The basement is beautifully finished and is used as an office for their newspaper business.  When I lived there, the basement was not meant to be lived in.  There were two coal fired furnaces next to the south basement wall.  One heated the hot water radiators located in every room which kept the house evenly warm on the coldest winter days.  The smaller coal furnace heated the water in the hot water tank.  Two coal bins were located against the north wall which was adjacent to the outside driveway.  There was a  foundation window that opened into the coal bins providing access for the coal truck to deliver about 10 tons of coal each fall. One coal bin was fed larger chunks of coal for the big furnace and smaller chunks were delivered to the bin for the small  water-heater furnace.  A couple of shovels of coal each morning kept us warm in the winter.  However shaking down the ashes from the furnace grates and hauling out the ash cans was heavy duty work!  All the homes were heated with coal when we lived there in the forties.  My dad converted the coal furnaces to oil heat in about 1954.
It was good to hear from you.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Tripacer.  Nice story and I am not surpirzed.  Flushing has become an asian neighborhood but I still known people who live in the area from work (who are asians) and they are very nice people.  The problem with Flushing is that houses have turned into multi-family homes and the businesses are more condensed and dirtier.

On the other hand Kissena Park has been cleaned up ALOT since I was a kid.  The lake now has a 2/3 natural shoreline and fishing is better than ever. 

I went to Holy Cross High School and used to get off at 162nd and Northern, not far from you old home!  I still pass that general area once every few weeks as my mother lives in a Nursing home on Parsons and Northern.  25th Ave. is still one of the best tree-lined streets in FLushing.  That's one thing I miss about Flushing compared with Nassau County, there were alot more trees.  Now in Nassau everyone cut's down curbside trees because they are scared of being sued for falling branches, very sad.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Tripacer...My handle is Jimbo, I am also a Flushing boy born in 1938, another old timer. I am now living in Tucson AZ., Been here for 31 years but I sure due reminisce about the old times and the old neighborhood. I lived at 58-17 150st. Flushing. My dad bought his home there in 1950. It was semi- rural then, Still a lot of abandon farm land and fields a young boy and his brother could explore. Kissina park was one of my favorite places, I spent count'less hours there fishing and just goofing around. Loved to take the girl friends for a rowboat ride on the lake. Mad Sci Guy (Joe) is an expert when it comes to tales of  the park or the lake. gada go now , be well

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Mad Sci Guy, do you remember the Flushing pet shop, I believe it was on Roosevelt Ave. The same owners once owned a fish hatchery on Kissena Blvd. across the road from the park. There was a bunch of old buildings there where they bred and sold tropical fish. I was into tropicals pretty heavy back then. They abandoned the hatchery in 1952 or 53 and opened the store in Flushing.
The old drain pipe that was part of the spillway from the lake that seemed to disappear into the ground at Kissena Blvd. was always a mystery. Me and my brother and some friends were exploring the fields on the other side of  what is now Booth Memorial Ave. and 150 st. and we found a large manhole cover in the middle of nowhere. Somehow we removed the cover. There was a metal ladder going down into the hole with running water down below. I was brave enough to go down there and check it out, just then somebody yelled out it's the devil hole! I climbed out of there as fast as I could and never went back.  I have since discovered that what I found was the run off from the lake. It was diverted underground to empty into Flushing bay. I had quite a few adventures back then, and enjoyed them all. Lots of great memories.
The best to you....Jimbo

Tripacer,

Great to read your posts!

My folks' house (35-46 162nd Street) sounds like it was almost right behind your old house! We moved to Flushing in 1971, so you were long gone by the time we showed up. I think we bought the house from a couple named "Constable" if I remember correctly.

My folks still live there and I visit about 4-5 times yearly. The neighborhood sure has changed.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

This message is for Renee V.... Renee Im one of the Flushing old timers, my handle is Jimbo. The hobby shop you spoke of on Northen Blvd. near Robert Hall was called the Hobby Den. It was a very well stocked store with hobby equipment. for every need. It was owned by two follows who were in the know when it came to assisting people with their projects. One owners name was Dave, I don't remember the others name. My friend Dave Stein and I were into free flight & hand controlled model airplanes.As two young teenage boys we spent a lot of time,(and money) in that store. The two owners especially  Dave would go out of his way to help us with our endeavors.
P.S. Flushing was a great place to grow up in especially in the 50's and 60's
great memories.

Thanks for the Memories, No I am not Bob Hope lol, I too was born at Flushing Hospital, and grew up on 161st. Do you remember the RKO restaurant bar and grill next to the RKO theater?
Do you remember E&L texaco on Union and Northern & their other location at Northern and the Clearview, also Jo-als on 162 & Crocheron. I worked for the texaco station at both locations. I worked at Murray's, the Reception house across the street. It is a shame that a great neighborhood like flushing could not stay the same. There was a soda shop on Crocheron ave and 169th street that I can't remember the name of. I went there after picking up my paper's for my paper route which was on 169th. Did anyone have their mower blades sharpened at shop on depot rd and 162nd or by the man pushing his cart down every street wanting to sharpen your scissors and knives. How about Frank's music shop on Northern between 161 & 162nd street.
Did anyone play ice hockey at Bowne park or make rafts from the big storm that dropped all those trees in the park in the 70's.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Quite a memory you've got there.  Only wish I could remember half of what you've rattled off.

But hey . . . back in the Sixties I worked in that Candy Store on 169th and Crocheron.  In the 50's, it was known as Ehrlich's; early 60's MacDonald's/Feeley's, then Augustin's--all the last names of the owners.  I knew them all.  Wound up working next door in the Deli for a few years, through a succession of German owners.  Best-ever Potato Salad.

And of course, if you picked up your Star-Journal or LI Press on 169th like i did, then you are well familiar with the legend of Angelo Rico.

Flushing was great place to grow up.

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Hi , imissny...I to miss NY, not the way it is today but the way it was. You about blew me out of the water with your amazing memory of Flushing. I too lived in flushing, 58-17 150St. and 58Ave. Originally from Canada, my dad bought a new home at that address in 1949. I remember all of the places you mentioned. It was a great place to grow up in. It was also a safe place, not only for the homeowner but for young boys and girls growing up. I sure miss those times, you brought back a lot of wonderful memories by mentioning all of those great places where I grew up.
Thank you, and be well,
Jimbo

Re: Flushing, anyone?

Do any of you remember the Amber Lantern or Villa Bianca, both on Northern Boulevard in the 60s & 70s.  I think Villa Bianca was around 169th Street (on the corner) and the Amber Lantern was around 150th Street (on the corner)?  There was a Catering Hall on Northern Boulevard near the Amber Lantern.  Do any of you remember the name of it?  Thank you for your help.
