It was the nicest place. I am glad that it was around still for my son.

That picture sure brought back memories! See the 59 cent sign in the window? Wonder if that was the price of a burger? And the station wagon has the license plates that we now have coming back, orange! (Yuck)

Now, if the wrapping paper on that gift the woman is carrying were big primary colored polka dots, I'd say it came from Toy Town!

We used to own Stillman's Shoes which burned down to the ground in 1977. It was a huge fire that took out the whole block. Our store was 343 New York Avenue in downtown Huntington. It was the worst night.

I know the key man for the old bowling alley which is now walbaums. I moved to florida live there now. Miss Huntington big time. Many good memories there.

We lived by the harbor off West Shore rd. in the Anoatok community.

Anyway I got online and wanted to see if anyone remebers A and P supermarket. I used to get taken there as a baby in the early 1960s every Saturday morning. We used to see my grandma there too. And then there was The Big Apple supermarket right up the hill across the parking lot. This is right up the street from the Huuntington Library.

And YES I remember Hamburger Choo Choo VERY well, as I was brought there numerous times as a kid.

I am a true Huntingtonian, know alot about the place.
