I lived in Rosedale for about 37 years. I moved out in 1987. I now live in Sussex County, New Jersey.

Rosedale has one of the first Vietnam Veteran memorials in America. It was dedicated on Memorial Day 1968. You can see pictures and learn details about the memorial at: http://home.earthlink.net/~rosedalememorial/

I was raised in Rosedale. Lived across the street from the Fire station do you remember the camp Beacon? I miss Brookville park with the winter ice skating we used to do. Moved to Florida in 1990 I love it here. But Rosedale was a wonderful place to have raised a family back then. All my friends and I still keep in very close touch. Miss them all. I was there in 1994 and the area has gone to hell. But my memiories are still sunny.

Smile Rosedale was home!

Grew up in Rosedale...243rd and 141st. Ice skating was the best. Beacon camp was fun if you could climb the fence at night to get into the pool. .....The good ol' days

Default Growing up in Rosedale, Queens

This is basically for anyone born in the late 60's and early 70's, but I'm sure that many others will identify as well...

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.

Default What A Memory!

You have brought me back to my youth growing up in Rosedale during the late 70's and 1980's. I'll add my memories:

As a child, awesome Block Parties when I lived in an apartment on 147 dr.
Little League baseball coached by my Dad and winning the minor division world series in 1981.
Avanti's Deli when it was a small store and buying a sundew drink for a quarter from Sal.
The tennis program at Brookville park.
St. Pius X recess sports and the great teachers.
Playing on the all-star baseball travel teams ages 11 and 12.
Playing videogames in the back of Card and Gifts.
Sitting in front of Rosedale Pizza(the best pizza I have ever tasted to this day) then going to the video store to rent a movie.
Getting on my Schwinn Thrasher every morning and delivering the Daily News. 1983-1986... and collecting on Friday and Saturday nights.
Playing every sport under the sun on my block. (Wiffle ball, basketball, football, stickball, manhunt, etc.)
The Halloween shaving cream fights with the 195 crew.
The 4th of July Fireworks.
Summer nights with the windows open listening to the LIRR, motorcycles, and the cool cars with the radios loud.
Walking thru N. Woodmere to the park and sneaking in.
The Q111 bus to school each day.

Moved out in 1997 when I got married. My house was torn down last summer and a two family was put up in its' place.
If you grew up in Rosedale, you know what I mean when I say - what a great place to grow up!
