hi Overtaxed, I graduated EMHS in 1976, probably thats arround when Great Eastern closed. I did grow up in East Meadow and spent lots of time going up and down the turnpike. I will throw out some more memories.

Big Stear hamburger place , located where Burger King is now
The Slot car racing store near Prospect Ave
The Roller Rink
Jahns Ice cream store
Edlies electronics shop just over Wantagh Pky in Levittown
The Carvel store just west of the Parkway
Hammerheads
Middle Earth

I will post more when I remember

Default Cruising!

Ha Ha oh yeah i remember cruising Hempstead turnpike from East Meadow to Levittown then turn back and do it all over again, i guess looking for girls, trouble or whatever! But i did that in the late 80's. Do teens still do that?

Remember the restaurant called " Stallones" want that in westbury or Levittown? I tried it once, bad food quality in my opinion.

And Chi-Chi's i used to love until i got the worst food poisoning from that place, was sick for days- yuck, never thought of going back.

How about Great Eastern in East Meadow or the roller rink? Also going way back in East Meadow before Great Eastern there was a miniture golf course there and a pizza place (going back to the mid 60's) and the Meadowbrook movie theater? Anyone have other memories to share?

I grew up in Massapequa Park in the early 50's.

There were no malls.

We used to ride horses at Bethpage. We would ride over to the golf club, tie the horses outside, & go in for the *best* chockolate ice cream ever!

My parents paid $23,000 for their home in Bar Harbor in 1955. It recently sold for $800,000!!!

I haven't been back to LI since 1979. I guess there have been some changes...?

P.S. Taxes in SW Virginia (Blude Ridge Mountains) = $650 a year for a farmhouse, outbuildings, & 5 1/2 acres.

Electric bill, in the summer, for an all electric house, $30-35.00 per month.

It's never too cold or too hot. Just a dusting of snow, this winter, that was gone in one day.

Life is good!!

Anyone remember a small place called "Tadpoles" in the Oakdale area?

or...

Vanderbilt's Wharf. It's still there.
I WAS JUST TELLING MY WIFE THAT I STILL HAVE A ZEBRA BOOTLEG CASSETTE FROM THE MAD HATTER OF STONY BROOK. IT CONTAINS BOTH ZEBRA ORIGINALS AND LED ZEP COPIES. IF YOU NEVER HEARD ZEBRA DO ZEP, THEY DO IT BETTER THAN ZEP DID, AMAZING STUFF.
