Does anyone remember Manny's candy store, up the block from St. Clares Church.

He was a good man. His wife was nice too!

Now we have a beautiful, tiled built in pool, next to manicured garden, and my kids gwent in the pool exactly 4 times last summer !!quote=Jenny11422;3235231]I grew up in Rosedale too... '72-89 on 148th avenue (between 259th and Francis Lewis/Hook Creek).
I watched the gas station (Getty) at the merge of Francis Lewis and Hook Creek change names and owners dozens of times. Hook Creek was nothing but a giant sinkhole. I walked that road countless times... cutting thru Blum to get to Green Acres Mall.
I was a little girl when the drive-thru was still there. I have a picture of me on the old swings that were in the drive-thru parking lot. As I got older I'd buy beat-up (probably stolen) bikes and skates from the outdoor flea-market in that lot every Saturday morning.
I worked in just about every restaurant in the Green Acres food court
"Larry's Weiner Works", Blimpie, Stuffed Potato, the nasty salad/yogurt store...
I remember back when Korvettes was still there and the whole mall was chocolate brown and white square tiles. There was Puppy Palace, Cooky's Steak Pub, Gimbles, Dennison's (Hello Kitty Heaven).

Let's see... There was the candy store (Frank was the grumpy old guy who sold me cigarettes at any age) next to the old KeyFood (they turned into Annie sez )

PS195..
Mrs Lewis, Mrs Groff, Mr Papille, Mrs Benson, Mrs. Santoro, Mrs. Greif...and the old principal who looked like the Burger King king (I forget his name).
We had broken glass under our swings and had busted seesaws... and we liked it! Kids these days don't appreciate what a real school yard injury is
Then there was the Country Store ...parked at the handball courts. He sold an interesting variety of "stuff".

What else?.... The Chocolateria on Francis Lewis... Rotellas Deli, Paola Pizza..
The FEAST at the Son's of Italy!!! Rosedale Pizza, Bambi's ...

Those really cool rides that you could stop like and ice cream truck and every kid on the block could ride.
What else??? Danny's Crash cars, killer July 4th fireworks on every block-especially at the school yards....then picking the unused fireworks out of the streets the following day.. Christmas light craziness...especially down Rando's block..
CCD at St.Pius! Dance Street!!
The freedom of coming home when it got "dark out", as opposed to today's lame "playdates" and parental escorted EVERYTHING.

DeCurtis, Kajetanowicz', Oxleys, O'Shea, Hopkins, Poggis, DeStefanis, Kilbride, Nicolettis, Randos, Gaglianos, Buckleys, LaGreccas, Goldberg, DeLucas, Gerbasios, Devinos, Warnocks..... I could go on forever

It feels like it was all just yesterday

I remember alot of the teacher names you mentioned but not Mrs. Greif. I would have remembered that teacher cause my last name is the same. I lived on 148 Drive and went to 195, the annex and Springfield Gardens High in the 70's and early 80's

Default Sister Agnes

Hi,
My name is Matt Hahn. I went to St. Clare and graduated in 1968. The stories you hear about Sister Agnes are all true. I had in the 7th grade. She had two paddles one was named Oscar and the other was named The Board of Education. Every Friday afternoon everyone with demerits lined up and she would wack you with the paddle. I go to Rosedale every week to see my mom. Rosedale was the best. I work at Stuyvesant HS in Manhattan for the past 25 years. I coached the football team till 2004 and I'm still coaching the varsity baseball team. When visting my mom I still take home J/S pizza still the best. I lived on 259 Street and 148 Drive.

I didn't go to school there but I remember hearing about a Sister Agnus who used to hit the kids with a paddle in the sixties. Can anyone tell me if that was really true? I have older cousins who went to catholic school (in brooklyn) and said the nuns were brutal back then. Does anyone remember Father Joe at St. Pius? Young guy who brought young kids back to mass. He was pretty cool but I heard he is not a priest anymore. Any, by the way, California Pizza was delicious! So light, you could eat about 5 slices. You would sit at the counter on the stools that could spin around. I had a friend that used to work there. Yum!! J&S was (and I hear still is) really good. More spicy than California Pizza. I don't ever remember mothers leaving their babies alone outside the stores in the mall. But I do remember the huge Santa Claus statue that was put up every Christmas by Green Acres Bowling Alley (He was juggling balls). Other Christmas decorations were put on top of coverings of the mall walkways before the mall was enclosed. The pretzel lady was the BEST! You're right, they were 3 for 25 cents. What a bargain! There was a store called Lane's and then it changed to Love's, then Gertz, than Korvette's I think. I could be wrong about that. That's going way back. After H.S. I used to work at the airport too, Schenkers Intl. Fdwrs.
