Jumping off the palisades. Now that was fun
Oh yeah! Had a lot of good times up there. My friend and I hitch hiked up there every chance we got one summer. We're lucky we didn't get snatched up, oh to be young again. Lol now that I have a child of my own, I'm so glad it's block off. Now we just have to worry about heroin addiction!
Remember when "uptown" was the place to be on a Fri. night after a football game. Place would be swarmed with teenagers. I spent many quarters on that stupid Pole Position game at the bowling alley. I loved being a teen in Rome in the eighties. We had a lot of great times.

Also, there was The Plaza, The Vesuvio, Vinci's, Uvanni's, Copper Kettle,
Lamplight, V&E, Tommy's Tavern (ok, so that was in Taberg, but it was a lot of fun).

What a great topic! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the old places. Rome was a great place to grow up back then. Thanks for the memories to whoever started this thread.

George Manning was the owner of the store across from old RFA? I never knew his last name. With all the kids that went there he had a lot to put up with. We were probably the ones who made him mean. There was another store across from RFA a block over. Anyone recall the name of it? I spent many a lunch there.
George's store was on North James Street across from the gas station Not near RFA)...I used to go there to get the newspapers for my folks almost every day, and I used to catch the bus on the corner every morning to school, and stopped in there to buy some candy.
On Saturday afternoons, I would go in there and read (and eventually buy) some of the comic books he had there. George was always very kind to me and to my parents for many years; I made sure to stop by and see him when I would come into town to see him-lots of good memories.

Went to Harvey E. Alter til it closed, about 1977. Before the road from 5th St. to 6th St. near Pintifield was cleared and paved, we used to cut through the neighbors trees and bushes in their yard to cut through to go to Columbus school. The original Gualteri's Market, Tony's T-Shirts, then Kung Fu Studio,...good memories.

I think it's funny how post are created. They throw out random stuff. If you read some of the post u can tell the class of people it involves. Some classes wouldn't know these names. But others throw last names and they are known for theft, cocaine, crack, heroin, pills and so on. Dealers or users. Than you have a totally different class and throws out name some history about Rome. That brings the age bracket way up there.im gonna get you.
Ppl like to talk.
Kind of entertaining to get on here.
