I remember going to the Shop-rite on first hill. I don't miss that place though. I miss the Pink Zone and I also miss the old Broadway Market, theater and all.It was a great meeting place and people watching zone.

How could I have forgotten the Seattle Center and the NG theater with the springs in the seats and the rats running on stage. That place was cool. Before it closed, my friend saw Gwar there!Now we are getting this ginormous megaplex that looks gaudy. Yes, I agree the Seattle Center needs to bring back more shops inside. Its a dead zone. They should also bring back Lazer Cure.
Now what about Mocheesmo Mouse on Queen Anne? I didn't care for the food,but its still gone.

Macheesmo Mouse was some of the worst Mexican food Seattle has ever seen, and Seattle's not a town known for Mexican food.
...But what I do miss in the Seattle center? The Bubbleator.

Now the real little store on 35th & 60th, I loved! Must of stopped by everyday on the way home from Bryant and got ice cube chocolates. I also remember when it became an antique store, guess they couldn't keep it open off our pennies!
We must of lived a block away from you on 38th Ave. There were a large group of us kids that played together. Haven't seen the neighborhood for over 25 years. Years ago I read about the remodel at Bryant Elementary. I had forgotten alot of things about the school, like separate playgrounds, not skipping any steps, etc.

Wow, what a coincidence! I would have never thought I'd run into somebody on here from the old neighborhood...

Did you grow up north or south of 60th...? My block had the Durkin's, the OíNeillís, the Harvey's the Baker's the McKagan's, the Rivera's, the Linderís and several more that I can't remember, mostly those that didn't have children my age.

We were on the corner of 57th & 38th. Not sure if that's north or south, LOL. Who would have thought that Matt McKagan (who I babysat once) would have grown up to be in Guns & Roses. Do you remember the house that burned down? Whenever I smell fire, I still think of that tragedy.

I'm trying to remember the people who lived on the corner of 57th & 38th; the Linder's and the Boyer's are the only names that come to mind...

There were eight McKagen children, of which I can remember Matt, Duff, Claudia, Joan, Jon and Mark. Duff is the youngest and he was in Guns & Roses, Matt is a few years older than Duff. I think Matt would be around 48 or 49 and Duff around 44.

I do remember that tragic fire...as you might remember the fire station was up on 55th and 32nd so we used to hear the sirens quite often, and for years after that awful fire whenever I would here the fire truck I would think of that fire. As I remember it was a faulty lamp cord that started it. Those two kids that died would have been in their late 40's or early 50's by now. It's strange that I don't remember their names.

Isn't it funny to run into somebody that shares some of the same memories on a message board like this? Gotta love it!

I lived in the middle of 28th just up from 60th.

I don't remember the names of the stores... but there was a five and dime where I'd go and drool over all the things I couldn't buy, and grocery store, and a deli across the street... we used to go there for canned fried potatoes and Green Rivers. Down the street was a Chinese restaurant that had the best pork fried rice, and then of course Ravenna Park, which was my home away from home, until I was old enough to go to Greenlake.

Did you go to Bryant? I was there from 1956 until 1962, when we moved closer to Wedgewood and Lake City

Yes, I remember that antique store too. After I got out of high school, some friends and I rented a house just down the street from there... just before the cemetery.

There was a small store on 35th and 60th that I remember...is that the one you referring to? Eventually the store went out of business and an antique store moved in...
