Here's some pictures I took in Feb. of 2005 for a friend of mine. I know they're not great but they'll do.

A lot has changed though since I took them though:

Columbia Corner is now a Golden Krust.
St. Pius X School is closed and has been leased to the Board of Education. These might be the last pictures of the school with the Cross.
There's pics of St. Pius and St. Clare's.
I took pics from a far of PS 195 and PS 138. A few shots of my old block 148th Avenue between Brookville and 241st and a shot down 148 Drive.
I took a shot of Key Food in town and at the intersection of town and 147th. A shot into the Park, a few snaps down Brookville looking at Rosedale Auto Parts and the former Avanti's. The Pizza King turned Sons of Italy turned Medical Clinic!!! The fire house, Kentucky Fried Chicken off Hook Creek and the Conduit, Sunrise Cinema and the front end of Green Acres.

I'll have to update my pics sometime soon. If anything I've learned that Rosedale gets a lot smaller as you grow older.
I wonder if you remember playing the family feud board game in my apartment with your brothers and my family. (BUZZ-BUZZ) OR... Coming over to my house and ripping my Eddie Van Halen poster. OR ... Your next oldest brother and I discussing ripping up Chris Johanassen's backyard patio to get back our Star Wars figures.
Anyway, you have a good memory so you can google my name and find my email so you, me, and your brothers can hang out. It would be great to see you guys.
Great pictures...by the way, my house on 256st was completely leveled and a monster 2 family was put up. I saw it last summer going home from the beach. And you are right, Rosedale is really small.

It's 2:30 am on a Sunday Morning. I hopped off at the old Brookfield Blvd exit and found myself in more traffic. I cut over to the right and was able to make the right hand turn on to Brookfield Blvd. My shortcut ended up costing me an hour as I drove around the old neighborhood. I haven't been there in too many years.

Before I knew it, I'm passing the old Fire House in Brookfield Park. Hey - they put up a real nice playground over there. Another quick glance and I see that the old wooden bridges over the stream are still there. Weren't they rotting when I was a kid??? LOL Boat house is gone. Lake is still there.

Anyway, I hit 147th Ave. The old Sons of Italy building (yeah It used to be Pizza King!) is there, but now occupied by a bunch of medical offices. As I'm sitting at the light, I'm trying to figure out how they got all of those rides in that parking lot along with all of those tents (especially the Under/Over tent - 5 to 1 odds on the 7!). Always wondered why the Sons of Italy building was the only all-white painted building that never had a grafitti on it! One last glance to the park and I see that the old historical marker on the boulder is still on the corner of Brooklvile and 147th ave. It said that an American spy was hung by the British on the nearby tree during the Revolutionary War. Then I look further into the park and I see the old little league fields. Field #2 had trees in left field and field #3 had that large fence in left field. No kid ever carried that fence in a game. Field #4 looks like it still has no grass on it, but it looks like it still has that 220 foot fence.

I made the left on to 147th Ave and before I know it, I'm at Rosedale's five corners (243rd Street, 147th Ave & Huxley). Sure enough, I'm at that light and a city bus is turning on to 147th ave. LOL Just like old times!

Rather than get behind the bus, I shoot up Huxley going towards Craft Ave. I make the quick left at 148th Ave. Damn...overshot St.Pius! The old Convent is still there, and there is that beautiful round school that they closed. I graduated from that school. There's the church (it was always supposed to be the schools auditorium) but they ran out of money. That's why the church had the altar on the stage with the stage curtains flanking it. I made the right on to 147th Road and began to name off the old friend's houses...There's Claudio DeVellis' & Moss' house on the corner. Joe Kick's house. Then Anthony Rando's house. Cribby's place. Then the old Con Ed field we play touch football in. You still need to hop the fence to get in.

Weller Lane and I make a right. There's the place Mike Avolio moved into when he married JoEllen for 10 minutes. Another right onto 147th Drive. Ther'e Anthony Moeller's house. Marc Trama's place. Billy & Johnny Nick's old House. The Sena's. There's the DeSarno's house with the extended porch in front. Move up the block and there's the Shimel's house. I could almost here Nanny Shimel calling for Brent. There used to be a swamp here between 253rd and the St.Pius school yard, but it's all new houses. Another left on to 253rd and there's the Boris' house. Then a quick left on to 148th Ave and there's the Divino residence. Not frog season so Joe Divino can sleep well. Then there's Vito Ardito's house. Back up to Weller Lane and I got to go see 195! Pass the Rinks' and and Malenowski's and then there's PS 195. Just before I make that quick right I glance over and look at the Coletti's household. And I almost forgot how wide this street was (Jamie Cervo's block). I pull up near the school yard and it's not a school yard anymore. They extended the school over where home plate used to be. Oh well.. Then the famous handball courts. Where's Bill Venezia playing handball? Where Mike Kilbride? Or Richie DeCurtis? Where;s the guy doing a whellie from 253rd to Weller? Just before I make the left and circle around the school yard headed back towards Weller Lane, I say that this can't be 195 because the Ice Cream truck isn't parked on the corner. Now...Which house was Angelo Reda's?

I shoot back down Weller lane to 147th Ave and make the left onto 147th Ave going back where I came from...only because I got to swing by town to see what that looks like. A right and a quick left and I'm, headed up Mayda - Or was it Newhall? Maybe it was Caney? LOL Now there's town. No more Roman Carousel. No more Dance Street. No more Palermo's. Rosedale Pizza has a sign in the window selling Jerk Chicken. Good Grief. Hey - there's the old Bohacks/Key Food. I got to get out of here.

I'm headed back up to the traffic on Sunrise so I make the right on Memphis Ave. There's the old Lutheran Church. Got to go pass Rotella's so I shoot down to Francis Lewis Blvd. There's the old Jewish Center. Make the right onto Franny Lewis and head back toward's 147th Ave. I quickly make a left to drive down Hook Creek just to see if it's still full of potholes. What a disappointment - not a one. Perfectly paved. What a shame. I circle back around up to Francis Lewis and then back toward 147th Ave. I go through the light and now I'm at the confluence of 148th Ave, Hook Creek Blvd and Francis Lewis. Son of a gun...they put a red-light here?!?!?! The busses used to turn around over here and there was never an accident...why the light?

OK - Trips over...I'm going to cut through N.Woodmere and put Rosedale in the rearview mirror. Then I almost lock up the wheels at this funny looking eight-sided red stop sign at 148th Drive and the begining of Rosedale Road. They put up a Stop Sign here?!?!?! I blow right through it. Next thing I know, there's a NYC PD car pulling me over for failing to stop at that stop sign as I almost made it out of NYC. I'm on the corner of Rosedale Road and 262.

Me: "But officer, I grew up here. There was never a stop sign there."

Cop: "There's one there now, guy. What are you doing here?"

Me: "But you don't understand...I spent the first 22 years of my life here. I can drive around this neighborhood with my eyes closed and tell you everything about it."

Cop: "OK...let me ask you this...If you spent 22 years here, then why are you here now?"

Me: "Just driving around looking at the old 'hood"

Cop: "Really? How's it look?"

Me: "It's changed...but it's the same. Kind of. I mean Hook Creek Blvd is paved"

Cop: "Have a good night, Sir. Anyone who remembers Hook Creek Blvd like that lived here years ago"

Me: "What does that mean?"

Cop: "You don't live here. You have no reason to be here. You're not from here. But you are from here. You know what I mean?"

Me: "Yeah...I do. I really do. Hey...Thanks, eh? Have a good one"

Cop: "You too, Sir. No more sightseeing, OK? There isn't a Memory Lane here"

Me: "Hey...I got a question for you...What was Rosedale known as before it was Rosedale?"

Cop: "I don't know."

Me: "Cherry Valley Grove. Google that when you get home. 147th Ave was once Cherry Valley Lane".

Then I sped off up Rosedale Road and put the old 'Dale in my rearview mirror.

Radio is off. Names roll through my memory...Barbara Gorman, Linda Silverman, Mark Narduzzi, Yves Marie Desire, Fritzner Pierre, Ritchie Fabella, Jennifer Fiorello, Andrea Salreno, Mrs. Fata, Mr. Vallar, Mr. Russell, Sister Rosemund, Father Michael, Clare Morro, Frank Malcangi, Santo Fontana, Andrew Tolmeo, Chriss Poggi, Mark Trafficanda, Linda Carfora, Joe Iaccavelli, Ritchie Rizzo, Angelo Coscia, Tom Dinetti, Paul Buckley, Todd Gerbasio, and Dave Rando. Is it possible that we blinked and it was over?

It sucks moving away and growing older.

It's GREAT to remember though.
I BET YOU GRADUATED ST PIUS IN 1983 AND THEN WENT TO ST. AGNES JUDGING BY THE PEOPLE YOU MENTIONED. I AM 2-3 YEARS YOUNGER THAN YOU AND WOW DO YOU HAVE A GOOD MEMORY! NICE WORK!

My former husband lived there since the house was built in 1958. We had been together since 1964 and I moved in there in 1969 to 1972 when we moved further out to Suffolk County. Not sure which corner your wife lived on, there was a 2 family house (the wife's name was Janice) next to ours on the corner, my brother-n-law and his family lived upstairs at one time and then the Nevins moved in. Across from that was the Belmontes. On the other side of Brookeville I am not sure who lived on the corner, but Roger and Joyce Julianelli lived diagonally across from us. Gail is doing well and living in Florida now.

Rosedale was awesome...I miss it all the time....that other supermarket on 243rd was Met foods right?


Richie Rizzo always said it...--special time, special place!
I am not Beanie....not sure what that means I am Ali, the one who put together a bunch of our neighborhood reunions and who started the Rosedale Revisited web site. I am sure we had emailed several times before. I graduated from Andrew Jackson in 1966, a LONG time ago!

first of all, it is not Brookfield park, as some of you have written...it's Brookville. Next, no one has mentioned the best Italian restaurant i have ever eaten in...that would be Delo's, which was on Francis Lewis Blvd.. next to Cecil Shamberger's school of dance, diagonally across from Rosedale Jewish Center. lived there from 1960 til 1984. My father was a founding member of the Volunteer Ambulance Corp. (nothing like getting a phone call in the middle of the night and hearing the gruesome details the next day). Great memories of Rosedale, all of them. after getting married, played in the Galaxy football league, which was organized and run by Bob (Whitey) Etter. I work with a fellow Springfield grad (1972), Matty Hahn, who many of you might remember from the little league association as well as pop warner football.

I lived in Rosedale for the first 1.5 years of my life. But my father grew up there with my grandma and my uncle. Him and a group of their friends hung out on Mayder Road. Or something like that, sorry my Rosedale-trivia isn't up to par. He went to St. Clare's for eight years, then Springfield for high school. He graduated in '82. Probably one of the only white guys in his graduating class, so he tells me. We lived on 243rd Street off of FL Blvd.
