Made a pretty good eggcream.

That was Dave Becker. I dated his sister Kathy back in 1964. Dave bought the store around that same time period. All through the 50's the candy store was simply known as Elsie's. The store immediately to its left was the original Rosedale library before the location was moved to 243rd St.

Probably. The old man was really a decent guy. He was retired from the Brooklyn Navy Yard at that time so it makes sense that he worked in the candy store. Dave also had a younger brother Eddie; Kathy was the baby of the family. The Beckers were good people.

They were great to live across the street from. Guess you don't have any contact with the family.

Were you between Francis Lewis and Hook Creek? I spent 23 years in Dallas before coming back east.

Talking Dead Man's Hill

I too attended St. Clare's in the early sixties. And yes there was a Sister Agnes. We called her Aggie and she did have at least one paddle. Does anyone remember Dead Man's Hill ? We would ride our bikes down it at full speed almost running onto the Southern State Pkwy. Now there is a guard rail up to prevent against that. It was locaed on the bridge that crossed over the parkway between Francis Lewis and Brookville Blvd. Now there are barriers on the bridge walkway as well. They sure sucked all the fun out of walking over that bridge! I remember Manny's too. It was a mandatory after school stop for candy, soda, and comic books. That is until the nuns at St. Claires"s prohibited it because he sold "dirty magazines." Great memories, all of them!!
