I WAS new, at the time. LI seemed a strange place, but became home after years of living near Pt Jeff.

I remember thinking that I would never be able to pronounce those strange LI names. Patchogue? Happauge? How does one say that?

Now I live in Europe and regularly travel on the Brittany Ferries, crossing the Channel.

Brown's Fish Market.

Port Jefferson village in the '60's-grammas.jpg

The correct name of this shop was Grammas' , not Gramma's like most people seem to think. It's pronounced gram-misses and it ( Grammas ) was the name of the family that owned it.

Some more nostalgia questions:

Name the oil barge that cracked almost completely in half after unloading oil.

Name the sailboat anchored in the pavement near Gudzik's Marine (pizza was involved).

Name the bicycle shop on main street.

Very new. Around 1970.

Funny thing. I live in Europe now. I don't miss it. Not a bit. Or I think I don't until I read this thread and my eyes fill with tears.

It's all changed, of course.

1 ) I recall seeing it in the harbor but don't remember the name of it.

2 ) I must've driven by it thousands of times but don't think I ever noticed the name. What was that giant steel ball in front of Gudzik's ? Remember that ?

3 ) That's a tough one !

The tanker was named MV Martha R. Ingram, and the hull fracture occurred on January 10, 1972.

I remember that tank ball, but don't know what it held. Don't know the names of the (I think) pizza saiboat or the bike shop.

For those of you who are too young to remember it (most of you, I bet), Port Jeff Village was a wonderful place to grow up. We lived on Stongs Neck and used to take the boat to Lyons dock just to get a 10 cent ice cold coke from the dispenser. Then, it was off to Grammas'; then to Darling's for comics (10 cents). It was an idyllic place to be. I am so sorry to hear that it has changed so much.
It was still pretty nice when my son was small and we used to go to Rocketship Park all the time. Grammas' and Darlings's were still there.
