has the friendliest people in all my experiences. I attended the University from '83-'87 and i thought it was friendly there and even when i pass through Delaware by car in my travels now every year and I stop at the Christiana Mall for a break back to NYC the good attitude of the people continues to be as contagious as it was 25 years ago. And I noticed they spruced up the Main Street area of Newark back in the 90's with some kind of enclosed mall and a cool small "Borders and Books" type of store on Main Street(I recall the old malt Shoppe and "I Like It Like That" used records back in the early 80's)

Now I have a question. In '87 or '86 there was this cool deli place that served great pastrami/corned beef sandwiches called Jack Lundy's, it was a white and blue building, very unpretentious, and it wasn't there prior to '87 or '86. On Main Street right down near Academy Street near the Kinkos. I don't know if it's still there today(I don't think i saw it there within the past 15 years)but I wonder if J Lundy's was ever a Delaware chain or if it was privately owned.

What memories!!

Hi rlrl,

I'll have to agree with you on DE having very friendly people living here. We moved to central Kent County, and haven't had the chance to get to northern DE often, yet. So I can't help you on the question about Jack Lundy's in Newark.

Strangely, hubby and I used to travel the Route 13 corridor en route from Va Beach to NYC when he was in the Navy. While we didn't venture off 13 much, we were infatuated with the Delmarva peninsula. Little did we know we would end up living here 20+ years later!

Ah, yes, memories!

Mary

Every place I visit in this country I have to say Delaware people are the most open, friendly people I run into. I happen to be a Delawarean myself.

When I go to Philadelphia, where I have lived for years, I see the huge difference, where it is totally inappropriate to start a conversation with someone you don't know.

I have to say, though, when I do come back, I do appreciate having a short, impersonal relationship with just about anybody I run into.

That might be Delaware's prize aspect.

rlrl,

We may have; I have a brother with down syndrome, and a son with autism. I'm trying to recall, and it seems my brain is shot for memory. But then again, we've had a TON of stuff going on these last few months, and I'm a bit sleep deprived these days!

I'll check my direct messages... your "name" DOES ring a bell!

Mary

Default It was you...

I recall you. I may not be accurate but did you say you were from Long Island or another state before moving to Del?

rlrl,

We moved here from NC, but lived on Long Island about 16 years ago. Hubby's family is from Long Island... still there, in fact.

What great memory you have! Mine is shot!

Hi all new to board.
I agree! I used to go to RB way back when I was in highschool and after a few years of the Jersey beaches after I got married,returned w/family to RB/Lewes(for vacation). Several years ago we bought a small mobile home in a park about 1 mile from the beach...I am there as much as possible. Would like to move (husband and me) to a bigger place (even a bigger mobile) but unless hubby loses his job (and it is looking shakier each month) we are stuck in PA.
I actually like the park we are in (right on Rt.1) but to live there permanently...maybe like to get to a quieter place.
Can anyone tell me anything about Rehoboth Bay MHP? Is it part of the Pott's Net group? (Hope not).
Back on topic...everyone does seem friendly in Sussex County..except for some over on the North Shore...but regular folks are fine!I have met many who moved from NJ,PA...no one is sorry they made the move.

It was called Jack Lundy's Deli, it was privately owned and I think its closed. I used to eat there as a kid in the 70's and 80's. Have a great day!
