Of course there was a Jack in the box on High my brother worked there. I'm sure he'll jump in soon- So I'll try to get the jump on him.! The apple orchard on sunset? The Pine tree inn (neck and sunset?)? Montesero's lawn mower repair, The sunset inn, Old man Ballinger walking with a 400 pound load of wood on his back, The plastic santa clause head on Ballingers door for 30 years in a row, Sterling Acres, second lake, "The pond" (even before Adams pond), Mills Harley Davidson, Tony's Pizza, Pop's and Lincoln cold cuts in Farnersville, The Green stamp store, Shop Rite (even before Pathmark) Pathmark Drugs (Shop Rite Drugs), Tenneco (next to Beverly Road School. Anyone remember the teachers at Sprigside?? Mrs. Wolf, Mrs wilson, Mrs. Whittaker, Mrs. Pittman, Mrs. Langdon, Mrs Lorenz????

JD bakery is still there - We went there on the way to the Mount Holly Prison museum a few months ago and had the best donuts ever!! It was next to Schorres? and across from Sams (the cigar chomping candy store guy who sold us fireworks as minors :-) I think the Naprova's still own JB. Waitz Jewelers on High is also still there. Mcrory's is gone :-( Sprinside school is all abandoned and sad now..

We would walk a block down to 7-11 to get slurpee's. Some other things I remember growing up in Burlington include..
Sylvan Lakes
Kiddie city
The bakery on High street near 130
The laundramat across from the bakery.
The old Acme. "super-saver"
Holiday Lake
Willingboro Plaza (IT SEEMED SO BIG as a kid) they had a circus come to the parking lot one year.
Connie Curtains Marina(spent many summers there)
Although I lived about a mile or more from the Bristol Bridge, I could climb a tree in my yard and see it easily!
Stewarts drive in on 130.

The Beverly Road Firehouse Dance. The Pheasant Inn (Henry's Bar) on 130. Any members of Uncle Warren's Chess Club out there? It's was back on a dead end across from Laurel Hill cemetary. Uncle Warren was the bus man at Burlington diner in early 70's. The colored candy store smack dab in the middle of the colored country ghetto otherside of 130. Sorry for the language I can't remember any other way to discribe it and nothing racist is meant by it.

Anyone know what is happening with the Burlington Center Mall? I haven't been there since I left NJ, but heard that it is close to shutting down.

That information is incorrect. The Burlington center Mall is or was bought by a new owner and is going to be revitalized. It's clearly about time! http://www.phillyburbs.com/my_town/burlington...

Robert Hall's clothing store at Sunset and 541.
The "pits" on the delaware near The TP bridge. If you were lucky, cops would confiscate your beer for themselves and just send you on your way.
Hanging out at Smith School in city on weekend nights.
Tony's at the end of High St (now Cafe Gallery). Parents would take us there on Friday nights.
Working at Gregory's with Spezzano, Jackamonis(RIP) and F Leroy(RIP).
