Having grown up in Rosedale and still visit since I have family there, I wouldn't say it's "gone to hell" - there are much worse areas in Queens. It does have issues though - people I know have seen a car being dismantled at 5 in the morning.

However, I definitely would not call it diverse! It's a minority neighborhood of primarily West Indian immigrants - Jamaican, Haitian, etc - not much diversity if everyone has the same background! Of course, every other neighborhood in Queens is "diverse" the same way also - if there is a mix of people it's because all of one group hasn't left yet.

It does have issues though: Try to sleep on a Saturday night in the summer - someone has a loud party going. Transportation to Manhattan sucks - either pay through the nose for the LIRR or take a bus/subway combination that takes over an hour!!

Guess if you didn't live in Rosedale back in the early days, you wouldn't know the changes. Driving up 243rd and seeing the stores with metal gates and all doesn't convey the safety we felt back in the days when kids could walk up to the candy store without an escort and buy their favorite treats. Rosedale is so much more crowded then it was back then when single family homes really were SINGLE family homes without people living in the basements...that was where we had our parties or played on rainy days.

we lived in Rosedale, off of Hook Creek Blvd, on 135th Rd from 1966 to 1973. Our son went to St. Clare's School and I was the bookkeeper for KFC off highway near Green Acres Mall. Italian deli on Hood Creek was great..trying to remember name but I think it was "Tom's"? Does anyone know where pics of neighborhood available on net? Want to find our old house..#246-14 (I think!), but Google view doesn't look right. Our name then was Stout..I knew Stanley Panzarella and brothers also.

Wonderful time in Rosedale from 1966-1973 when we had to move to TX. Son went to St. Clare's school and had Sister Rose Ellen in 1st grade. We lived off of Hook Creek Blvd.,on 135th rd. 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!

Rosedale bakery and Palermo's which also sold Pizza. Bambi's is still there, in name only. Not the same. St. Pius closed two years ago. Rosedale Sports Assoc. was the thing to belong to back then, besides CYO. Some of the best memories of growing up. Thanks for reminding me.

Do You Remember...
Bambi's? On 243rd St?
The St. Pius School Bazar? In their schoolyard.
Replaced by the Sons of Italy Feast? In their parking lot
That The Sons of Italy building used to be Pizza King? 147th Ave abd Brookfield Blvd
Walking to Green Acres? Through the open gate behind Sunrise Cinemas
The rumor every year that the city was going to setup a hockey rink in Brookfield park? It was supposed to be built near the fire house.
The old Drive-In theater? Always looking at it when leaving the mall at night.
Twin Donut? On Sunrise Highway.
Herman's Sporting Goods in Valley Stream? It was always a mess inside.
When Hook Creek Road was bumpy? Pothole capital of New York.
The Gully in Brookfield Park? Next to the tennis courts.
The Boat House in Brookfield Park? Used to rent paddle wheel boats for the lake.
The two baseball fields used for the "farm" level of Little League? Between the commuter parking lot and Hook Creek Blvd.
Snake Road? Don't have an auto break down when traveling on it.
Rosedale Sports Association? Entrance was a side door.
Danny's Cabs? Also know as Danny's Dare Devils.
Walking to "Town"? 243rd Street
The 747's out of Kennedy? Saturday morning, 7:45am.
When President Regan visited in 1985? Drove right down Francis Lewis Blvd into North Woodmere.
