Which one was the Cinderella Bakery? I see that Campbell's Bakery is still there. And thank goodness for Knoll Farms! I'm so glad that is still there -- it's a real plus for the town.

Hey Steve,
I saw your post, by any chance do you remember a bakery called Brink's it was on Commack Rd, there was also a deli near it called Van's. This is around 1968. Let me know if you have any info.
Thanks
I remember Brink's! Not Van's though.

To those commentors who still feel of Brentwood as home, I know EXACTLY what you are feeling. I lived on Whalen court in the southeast part of Brentwood from 1962 to 1977, when my parents sold the house just before the boom in prices! My God, so many happy, calming memories of growing up in Brentwood. When we moved to our new house into a new development, I remember that all the people moving into the new houses were from within a few blocks of our old Brooklyn nieghborhood. I remember all the new houses going up, the smell of fresh tar, the block parties, help tag involving 100 kids! Everybody looked after each other. I remember the spooky sounds of the Islip Speedway in the summer, the nieghborhood barbecues, Bono Pizza in the King Kullen shopping center. I went to Loretta Park Elementary, South Junior high, and Ross high school. I currently live in Upstate NY which is truly like a different country. Not bad, just different but NOT Long Island. By the way, there is no Long Island accent, the rest of them need to speak correctly. Does anybody remember Charlies Hot Dogs. The BEST IN THE WORLD! Long live memories. They serve a purpose but do not substitute for present reality (unfortunatly). My e-mail is polypman41@aol.com for anyone who like to share remidies.
WOW! THanks or the memories! I grew up in Brentwood in the 70's-90's the 70's were the best, never locked ur doors, played kick the can in the streets, we would cut across "Brentwood Country Club" to go to the n=movies and "Brents" yup, the good old days!

Hi all, can you confirm, is Brentwood the place where the fictional family of "Everybody Loves Raymond" are supposed to live?
If so, how do you feel about this?
no it is not, pretty sure Raymond is in Nassau County, Brentwood is Suffolk.

I also went to Loretta Park, South Jr High and Ross High School - only finished 10th grade!!! My parents moved us in 1977 and I graduated in '79 from a school in North Texas. Do you remember the Tony the Good Humor Man? I lived off Broadway on Tabor St. I miss the beach, every weekend at Jones Beach as a kid and when I finally got some freedom took the ferry over to Fire Island. Oh man so many memories!

I don't think many of you. Have been back to brentwood recently. Because it has change alot. Most of the people living there are spanish. So am I, I move to brentwood in the late 80's. Its not so nice any more. Loud music and people who don't care about anyone but themself. It so bad that I had to paid for private High school. I wish I could move out. but for certain reason I can not move yet. I soon as possible I will.

Reading all these comments made me long for the old days of Brentwood. I lived there from 61 to 79 and have very fond memories. My best memory was working and riding at Knoll Farm and think how great it is that it is still open and better than ever. I miss the South Shore Mall, the bakeries (I remember Mrs. Brings doing the baking at Brings' Bakery). But most of all I am glad I grew up there and sadden to see it doesn't have the hometown feel that it used too

Van's deli was in the same shopping center as the 'Big Apple' grocery store & Arlyn pharmacy wasn't it?
My first job was at the 'Big Apple'. God, that was a lifetime ago.
And, Charlie's hot dogs (on the corner of Spur & Islip Ave?), what memories!!!

This is a great thread, brings back GOOD memories. Brentwood started going downhill in the mid 80's. It's GROSS now, a real cryin' shame considing how lovely it WAS. Crowded, 8 cars/15 people/house...weekends loud parties till 2am, I could go on and on. It's like another country...SAD.

Cinderella's was on Brentwood Road, next to Carvel. Very tiny strip mall. There was a bar, a liquor store, and an electronics place called Sandros.

Not sure what's left over there. I left NY in 2000.

I remember Charlie's Deli which was in that same strip mall. Right next to Charlie's Deli they built a 7-11. I lived near Brentwood Rd and Candlewood Rd near Bohacks. I'll never forget catching the bus at Bohacks and taking it to the South Shore Mall. That was back in the early seventies.

I still have fond memories of Brentwood. Taking the bus to the South Shore Mall and eating french fries at the Woolworths lunch counter, my saturdays spent at the bowling alley or the skating rink, the many walks to Brentwood High, The Big Apple and of course the beach.
