The place was there in the 70s we use to call phony orders and send him to the neighbors that we didn’t like and watch him argue with them. We were bad...

Has anyone else seen the movie Romance and Cigarettes? This movie was filmed in Rosedale and uses Rosedale as a backdrop. It is a musical and stars James Gandolfini and Susan Sarandon. It is a John Turturro movie available on DVD

Hello all.
All of these stories and memories that people talk about are great. I lived in Rosedale from 1972 until 1990 I cannot think of a better place to have been raised. I lived on 250th st. in the crooked house. 138 school yard was the hang out for my brother and two sisters and then me. It seemed to be passed down.

Default I was in Rosedale on May 24, 2008.

I took these pictures of the Rosedale Vietnam Vets Memorial on Saturday, May 24, 2008. The Rosedale Funeral parlor is now a fast food joint. The building for the Rosedale Ambulance is still there. I served in it in the 1980s.

Thanks for posting those pictures. I remember the Kellys and I remember the day they were informed of their sons death, like it was yesterday.... I am glad the memorial is still standing.

A new name was added on Saturday to the Honor Roll. The Rosedale man was left off the Memorial for 40 years.

I lived a few blocks from O'Reilly's and walked down there for Kelly. The crowd was so big, many people had to wait outside the building.

Hi Annie It is weird reading the posts here, some are really not talking about the place we grew up in...I moved to the area in 1953 and it was surely a very different place. I believe it was the cheerleader girl who was talking about the mafia and stuff like that. I guess they didn't know that the Son's Of Italy was a restaurant before that, The Pizza King, where kids came from as far as Brooklyn to hear the local bands play and dance the night away. I heard mention of the diner on the corner of Farmer's and Rockaway Blvds.(there were no zip codes then, but the area was in zone 34, later becoming 11434, Jamaica) and remember that place as a kid as it was just around the corner from our house on 175th St. Or the Owl Tavern where many of the workers from the airport went after work to throw one back with their friends (think they had filmed part of Wall Street in there). There was mention of the conduit and 144th, Elsie's grandmother owned the candy store there and Ferdinand's restaurant was the place where many parties were held. One of my friend's lived over one of the stores on Conduit there. Everything past New York Blvd was in zone 13, later 11413 which was Springfield Gardens. Along 147th (or Cherry Ave before they turned everything to numbered streets sometime in the early 40s) there were many homes that were later turned into air frieght companies in the late 60s, early 70s. Across from the Dew Drop Inn was a junk yard, lots of old cars all down Sprinfield Lane there. A lumber yard was on one corner of 147th and New York Blvd., a gas station on the other and the Red Bus had a stop there for the bus that continues on to Far Rockaway or the one that went up 147th to Rosedale ending at Francis Lewis. Mr. Softee had their garage on the corner of 147th and 175th St just off Farmer's Blvd. Police raids or drug busts where never heard of back then. Brookville (it was NEVER known as Brookfield) Park was somewhere we kids could ride our bikes to and play all day. Springfield Park as another safe haven for us kids where with a home made fishing pole and some white bread, we would hope to catch a fish in the pond. There was Whitey's stable at the end of 147th Ave and Hook Creek where us kids could take a pony ride and there was so much open space, lots of the houses off 147th towards the swamps weren't even built yet. The closest high schools were either Andrew Jackson or Far Rockaway, Springfield Gardens High School wasn't even a dream nor was JHS 231, PS 181 or PS 195. We didn't know from race riots, color was never an issue. Rosedale was just about all white, but Springfield Gardens just up the road was another story. I graduated from PS 52 and we had a good mix there. We had two very wonderful black teachers (African-American was not a term back then) who were the favorite of most every student who they taught. In 1953, they were both brand new and the first Black teachers in the system there. By 1962, our neighborhood became mostly Black and it was very peaceful. Well, I could go on and on but I will say that the whole country seemed to have changed after 1968, not just Rosedale. By the way, life is great here in North Carolina!!
