Default Canarsie Bklyn NY

I grew up in Canarsie in the 60's. I lived at 2075 Rockaway Parkway apt 3g. My cousin Al Roker lived in Bayview until 62 63. John Salley lived up on the top floor. Patrick Clark the first African American Chef at Tav On The Green in Central Park lived here in the next building. Auggie and Jimmie Friscia and Mark Spielberg were my closet friends. I remember eating at Joy Teangs when Corkey Lang and Felix P from Mountain were there and missed playing at Canarsie High School. I am a singer songwriter Michael Elliott Moore.

Yes I remember all that and more. The Community 5 and 10 on Ave L and when St Judes church was temporarily held at the Canarsie Movie Theater, and I remember when my band, The Dolfins played Beatle music at the Theater before Hard Days Night and also Help were shown at the Sat. matinee, we even got our picture in the Canarsie Courier. Are there any girls out there that remember this? We also cut a record that somebody put in the juke box at Joes Pizza on 92nd and Ave L. I used to hot rod my 1968 Dodge Charger back then also. I used to shoot pool at Pop Klee's back then. Wow what a trip down memory lane this is. I also recall the Italian Civil Rights on Ave L and Our Lady Of Miracles off of Glenwood Road near where my good friend Fred Adinolfi and family lived. I recall the Seaview Park and Canarsie Pier and the Bayview projects too. Joe

Who cares about Canarsie's old knisheries, bagel joints, hardware stores, etc. What I remember from the 1970s and even earlier is the 14th St. Canarsie subway line. That was the last line to run the R-9 subway cars, which were manufactured by the American Car & Foundry Co. of Berwick, PA. They ran until the late '70s or even early 80's. The cars had rattan seats, bare incandescent light bulbs hanging upside down from little stems, ceiling fans with steel blades without any protective covering, clerestory roofs and the distinctive sounds of the Westinghouse motors. Alas, AC&F and Westinghouse are gone and so are all of the other US manufacturers of transit cars, replaced by Kawasaki, Kinki, Bombardier, Breda, Alstom, CAF, etc. Oh well.
