I went there as a ten year old in 1957. Who was the owner and younger woman who committed suicide there?
Vern Walter was the owner - the young girl was not at the ranch - Vern's wife was there - he met the young girl in therapy is the family story.

I went to both of the ranches as my parents were friends with Stan and Pauline. Sandy Herman sounds familiar to me. There were 2 girls that were somehow related to Stan, their names were Pam and Cheryl. not sure how but saw them sometimes when we were there. I have great memories. Does anyone know where it was? i would love to take a ride to the area.

Hi Brenda
Well, Syd is my brother and he and Pat were married. Pat died approx 13 years ago.
I am in touch with Karen & Ricky occasionally. What I will do is ask Karen if she wants to hear from you and then the same with Ricky. I cannot give out their info without their approval. I hope you understand that. I knew Sandy and Pat when I was really young when I went to visit Stanbrooke as a kid. I remember when they adopted the kids never seeing into the future and knowing Pat would become my sister in law. If you want to get in touch with me - I am on facebook or [email protected]

Wow, Stan and Pauline were much later. I met Pauline on several occasions but never really knew her. The ranch was in Clinton Corners - his first one was up on Bulls Head Rd known as Stanbrooke. The second was opposite end of Clinton Corners - Circle R originally! Stan's family was small - he never had children of his own and only 1 brother who was my father - Pam and Cheryl might have been related to Pauline or Kate Justus who was briefly married to Stan! The funny part was that Pauline came from Lakewood NJ where I grew up but I never knew her from there!

Hi Joe:I hope you are doing well.Do you remember the English Literature class in the college(1970-72)? I am still trying to decipher that poetry by T.S.Eliot!
If you are doing that Peekskill Virtual Journey on Google Streetview make sure to call at the Maple Avenue Country Deli(2111,Maple Avenue,Cort-
landt Manor).That building(or part of it)was there in 1974.Do you remember it from 1973?

My father owned a summer home just down the road from the ranch.
As a kid Stan Brook would let us swim in his pool.In my early teens he let me ride for free, if I cleaned out the stable. The horse I rode was called Apples. In 1967, worked as a dish washer on the 4th of July weekend. Those were wonderful times.

Sorry to say the Maple Avenue Deli has recently closed. Probably not the people you remember, but this guy ran a very nice place, I guess there just wasn't enough business to support him.

Wow, "modock" as in "Taubman". I remember the first weekend I worked for you in 1972 or so, I was 16, called you "Mr. Modock", everyone had a good laugh. And, yes, Barry was stoned all the time, so him comiing into the dining room calling for tips was no doubt true. Actually made quite a good amount of $$ there for the day, The $30 per weekend ended up pretyy much as $100 with tips.

Hey Howie, I worked there in '72, and there are a few things I'll always remember. One was Barry calling out "tips!" as he walked through the dining room. Kinda' looking at the floor, or nowhere in particular, just "tips!". It was like a subliminal message to the guests!
Another was Kenny, and he was always going "easy, mother..." not to anybody in particular, it was just something he was always saying. He'd walk through the doors, "easy, mother...".
And another guy was always saying about one or another of us, "nice guy,........ sucks!". That one still cracks me up.
