Does anyone remember Tony and Carmella Battista who lived on Bleeker St. with Pat & Marie Troncone (John was their son). I am their great niece and my grandfather was Samuel; other brothers were John and Louis and Lawrence. I visited them on Bleeker St. as a young girl when I lived on East 4th St. and went to Robert Fulton School, happy memories of shopping on 4th Ave./ Gramatan Ave., going to Loew's, Genungs, Woolworth's, Barash's stationery store, Sacred Heart Church, playing in Hartley Park, the school parades each Spring, etc. etc.s I am looking for Lawrence Troncone, my cousin who was the son of Helen and John Troncone, and brother to RoseMarie. Any help? Thanks.

The only Lawrence Troncone I know of was in Mahopac, NY. off Marina Drive. Wasnt there a "John's Bargain Store" in there somewhere near 4th Avenue?

Thanks, Martin. Did you know Lawrence? His mother was my Aunt Nell, and I believe she must have been a war bride, since she most likely met Uncle John in Scotland during the War. Their pretty little daughter, Rosemarie, sang on "The Childrens' Hour" on Sunday AM on television. Don't remember the John's Bargain Store, but sure remember hot fudge sundae's at The BEE HIVE, a big store called The Fair, both on 4th Ave....and Daniello's grocery store. My aunt Tilly worked at the Singer Sewing Machine Store at the lower end of 4th Ave. So many, many memories. I know Lawrence has lived in Mahopac, but don't the street name and so many people use cellphones that he may not be listed with the phone co. Oh, Well, thought he would get a kick out of knowing that after all these years, there is a new little girl, a Troncone, daughter to my brother (age 60) making a great great niece to Lawrence's late parents, but the same bloodline. Amazing.

I didn't really know Lawrence. I was friends with John when he used to deliver The Daily Argus back in the mid to late 1960's. I ran across the entry for Lawrence in Mahopac while doing an online search for John (It had a street address and phone number, but I couldnt say it was accurate or up to date). I was feeling nostalgic wondering what became of my old friends. I wish you the best of luck in your search...

I lived in the building that housed the Greco brothers offices, right above the mother, Mrs. Greco. If I remember right, John Troncone used to deliver the Daily Argus to our family. We used to play stickball, and "running bases" in the St. Mary's parking lot. Also enjoyed the festivals (and occasional snow forts) in that parking lot with the games and such. Ah, the simpler times of youth. Did you know the Gelardo, Bicknese, Serini, and Mazza families?
Hi, I came across this while looking at addresses where my relatives used to live. I was named for my grandfather, Paolo, who along with his brothers started Greco bros. I think Pasquale liveed at 13 n beeker. My grandfather lived at 18 n bond street. I remember going to beeker as a child, but I think my grandfathers house had been torn down. He also owned a grocery store in the neighborhood. I have lost touch with my various cousins over the years. Was the Danny mentioned Pasquales son? Any info would definitely be appreciated.

Hi, I came accross this site while looking at sites where my relatives lived. I was born in Mount Vernon and named for Paolo Greco, who along with his brothers, started a Greco consruction in the 1920's. I think it folded during the depression. My grandfather lived at 18 n bond st and I think Pasquale Greco lived at 13 n beeker. My grandfather had a grocery near his house during the depression. One of his brothers ran a club (jockey club?) in mount vernon. My dad (Angelo) moved to Florida when I was young and I have lost track of my cousins over the years. Was the Danny mentioned one of Pasquales sons? Any info on the Greco's would be most welcome.

If you put in Red Devils Mt.Vernon N.Y. On utube you will see some old time Mt.Vernon people who grew up on the west side, having a party at the Lincoln lounge!

Hello, Charlie and JeezLouise, I was just looking up the history of Bleeker where I grew up and the history of railroad flats when I entered your chat. How cool is that. I lived on Bleeker St. from birth - 1948 to 1974. I don't remember any of the names you mentioned. We lived at 42, then moved to 48. I hung out with Lynnie Hollingsworth Greco, DiNisco's, Lamanna, Gregorios, Puglisis. Do you recognize the names. I have been back to just look about. The neighborhood has certainly changed. Trees have been cut down and there is a new building in the St. Mary's parking lot. Mt. Vernon Avenue is a mess. I would love to join your chat.
I lived at 44 And then 42 South Bleeker from birth 1950 until I went in the service in 1968. The Gregorio's Mike Gary and Beverly lived in the same building I remember the Diiniscos, Lamanna and Puglisis as well as Ron Capone Howie Madel among others. I spend a lot of time at Grove St.

I am not sure who you are but apparently we lived n the same building.

Hi, this is James Cappello, son of Alfred and Romona Cappello. Lived on 42 N. Bond Street in Mt. Vernon. I remember David Guido. Noticed you live in Mountain View. Small world. My family moved to Nor Cal in 76. Been reminiscing the old days of Bond Street and Mt. Vernon since an Allen Cavalluzzi (his folks use to run Cavalluzzi's bar and restaurant way back) saw one of my posts of an old photo of my grandfather (Antonio Cappello, Sr.) and me.
Check out one of the cool, vintage videos that Allen uploaded of Bond Street and Mt. Vernon: https://www.facebook.com/allen.cavalluzzi/vid...

I went to Nichols for only a couple months before my family moved to Tuckahoe.
I put a couple pictures of the old neighborhood on the web. I will put more when I find them. The four color pictures were taken in the mid 1980's. It changed since we lived there, and I'm sure it has changed even more since my pictures were taken.

Hi, I am Paul Yannantuono and after living at 8 South Bond Street my father's family moved to 43 South Bleeker. Although I was raised in Bronxville, I have many happy and cherished memories of visiting my aunts, uncles, cousins over the weekends and especially for the Sunday dinners. Being the youngest of all my cousins I enjoyed being doted upon by my extend family. Everyone by the way was a total character! No one was shy a personality in the Yannantuono family. I worked for my dad"s company, County Chair Renting Co.starting at the tender age of 8. I remember the neighborhood well. Johnny's luncheonette at the top of Bond and Oak street was my favorite place to eat. I can still savor Jean's lemon with vanilla icing cake. On a more recent note I am still the owner of County Chair with my brother and sister. My father, Fred, passed away in 1997 and he always mentioned how wonderful it was growing up in Mount Vernon in the early nineteen hundreds and twenties. People were all from varied backgrounds yet for the most part everyone respected one another. I'm glad I found this site.
