Still can grab a slice of J&S pizza, the recipe is still the same as it was over 45 years ago, that great square cheese pizza with no gazillion choices of toppings. Guess that's the only place that is still "the same". I graduated Andrew Jackson in 1966 and my X graduated Far Rockaway the same years.

Does anyone recall the bridges being ripped apart in Brookville Park to keep the blacks on one side? Does anyone recall the tennis court nets being taken down and having to be replaced with dangerous fencing and the words '*****s go home' spray painted on the courts? How about the times when groups of White men drove the neighborhood throwing bricks into the picture windows. (The front window of my home a victim several times). Not to mention my friends and I being chased as pre-teen girls through the park by white teenaged 'clans' because the movies let out late and we had to walk through their 'neighborhood' after dark. And in addition putting out the lights in the park to make it more dangerous. And we only went through the park because walking along the conduit usually guarenteed us being splashed by some unknown liquid from white teens in cars.
It was horrible to see the neighborhood turn the way it did. It upset me when it became two Rosedales because my white Italian friends could safely walk to my side but I always needed an escort on the white side.
And despite the racist indignities I still grew up with a really great attitude but it is usually the blacks who do all the cowtowing & accepting or end up in a body bag. We don't have the luxury of being racist lest we give up the better equipted educational facilities, the higher paying jobs, the nicer homes and neighborhoods. Don't get me wrong 20% of the Italians I grew up with, the Albergos, the deCurtis', Basta's, Colletti's so forth and so on had no problem with being my friend. They also weren't part of the clans or mob terrorizing the streets. Sounds real f@#$% crazy when I put it that way. But hey I grew up in Rosedale at a time when Black homeowners houses were being burnt to a crispy shell in order to send a message that they weren't welcome on certain blocks, actually on the white side of Rosedale.

And here I though having become the first black Cheerleader on an all white Jets Cheer Squad was an accomplishment I wanted to share on a forum that seemed to be eager to exchange memories of a better time. Well as usual I guess it's only better for the MAJORITY and not the MINORITY.

White people were trying to keep blacks out no doubt about it. But lets be honest they knew what was about to happen to their neighborhood and wanted it stopped, mostly because the real estates (panzarella) started only showing homes to blacks and that was backed by our government. You couldn't sell your home to a white family in the 80's the whites were being kept out. It was frustrating and offensive. Neighbors stopped talking to one another when they saw them showing their homes to blacks, fights broke out. You didn't even know who your neighbor was anymore 3 different family's were/are living in one home. I go back to see the house I grew up in and find out it was a cat house after we sold it! prostitution out of my childhood home!!!my x neighbor the cop had to have it shut down..

Small house with Crabapple tree in front. Remember that some relative of Bernadette Peters lived closer to corner (Hook CreeK) as our son went to a birthday party there. Best of all was the Italian deli on Hook Creek blvd. where I made daily visits..was it "Tom's"? I worked as bookkeeper for KFC near highway & Green Acres Mall. Knew Stanley Panzarella & brothers. Also Dorothy Cee. Does anyone know if old pictures of neighborhood on net somewhere? Also trying to locate our house now on Google views..but doesn't look right. Have there been many major changes in streets, renovations etc.? Family name at that time was Stout. Miss those Rosedale days!

I watched Goodfellas about 50 times (goodfellahenry.com) sorry no links to rosedale and valley stream just idlewild airport (jamica). Fact is some mob people lived in Rosedale but then again they lived all over queens for that matter but very littlle activity no major busts as you assert. Also never referred to as Mobsdale sorry your trying to "steriotype" Maybe they dropped you on one of those cheers

Growing up in 'Mobsdale' (as was secretly referred to because of all of the alleged mafia activity and watching 'Goodfella's' where I was able to pretty much place all the locations in and around Rosedale, Valley Stream etc., and seeing all the busts take place) it wasn't only fun but exciting as well. Hey if we're going to point fingers let's go for broke.
Say what you will from now on. I'm reporting this forum and I'm leaving it for good.
