Thanks for directing me to those pictures.. they are great. The one that you directed me to.. was really right around the corner from where I lived at that time. "Ben's" Drug Store is there on the corner. That entire corner was demolished as part of the New England Thruway construction of 1954-1956. The building on North Avenue.. just north of the corner of Burling Lane ( 342 North Ave.) was a small apartment building where my Uncle and Aunt lived and they were also the janitors of the building. Next building up was the Dinkel's Market.. a real old popular meat and grocery market that many New Rochelleans would drive to to get their meat products. All in all .. that Facebook website is really a great one.. lot's of photo's that look like the places that I recall as I was growing up.

It's great isn't it.. I grew up across the street from "the Green Church" which became the NR Mall.. My husband's grandmother lived in an apartment on Park Place.

I loved Sharkey courts.....I got really involved in horseshoes and made friends with a lot of great pitchers and went to a couple of the national championships in Keene, NH and Murray, Utah.....its like bowling in the sunshine.

Good to hear I am in the same age range. Maybe I just lived a sheltered life down on Bayview Av.

Good Morning! It's raining hard down here in Tennessee.. so I'm sitting at the computer. Does anyone remember a couple of these old time soda fountain/hamburger joints (i.e before fast foods).
One was "Knophler's" ( or maybe it was "Knoflers")
on North Avenue.. just across from Lawn Avenue and Link's Bakery ( later Munzenmayer's Bakery). It was a great place to go after school.. or after basketball.. or whatever. Another one was more of a
soda fountain/stationery store on North Avenue just around the corner from Main Street..( on the northeast side about 3 or 4 stores from the corner).It was called Nick's or Jack's or something like that. I remember the place for it's great "egg creams" .. that cost a nickle. Went there after playing basketball at St. John's Methodist Gym.

There was also one across from my grandmother's deli at 425 Main Street where the Mall is now. It was next to the candy store, a few doors up from the Franklin Laundry. I remember my brothers used to call it Doc's, but I am not sure if that was the name. Carol would know since she lived next door.

Danny's was another great place to just hang... His shop was on North Ave just up from Bonifoy place. We use to listen to the juke box for hours upon hours. At one point Marty Lalli's demo record was in that juke box but I think we wore it out!!!

Doc's was next to Gundelach's when they had just a little shop on Franklin... Doc was a pharmacist but he made the best "ice tea" concoction - cherry coke - and egg creams, floats and milk shakes. He lived at the bottom of Franklin Ave. almost to Pelham Rd.

OK, now I remember where Doc's was. I wasn't quite sure. Thought he was on main across from Kraston's. What was the name of the candy store across from Kraston's?
