<quoted text> Hi, Barbara! I first moved to brentwood in 61, to a high ranch, from Brooklyn. My nana made the commmute to see us by train until she finally moved in with us. I remember it was just up and coming, it was rural but was like a wasteland because there was nothing there. I remember when all the neighbors put up fences and planted their grass seed. Came the day everyone saw little sprouts of grass, coming from Brooklyn, it was the biggest thrill on the block. I remember Bohacks, Hills, Food Fair, those will always be the best memories. I lived in Brentwood for 30 years.

I graduated Brentwood HS in 1969, even had tickets for Woodstock. Anyone remember Irv's Luncheonette on the corner of Fifth and Second Avenue? How about Negron & Sons Auto Service and parts? Grants Department Store? Lots of good memories in Brentwood.

I think it was called Bring's Bakery. They made a REAL ice cream cake, not the cement ones that Carvel makes.

I grew up in Brentwood during the 1970ís. I currently live in Bay Shore. My parents purchased a house on Westwood Drive down the street form Southeast Elementary School during the summer of 1976. I can tell you that Brentwood has not changed for the better. The population has grown so much that there is allot of congestion on the main roads around town at times. There are single-family homes that are housing multiple families in some cases. Largely Hispanic ethnicity now and I donít mean to imply anything negative about that. There are good and bad people from every ethnicity. Brentwood is very different from what it was when I was growing up during the 1970ís.
I donít know if any of you are familiar with Timberline Drive. There used to be a sump/dump there back in the early 70ís when I was a child. A couple of years after my parents bought there house during the summer of 1976, the town turned the sump/dump into a park with basketball courts, two baseball fields, a playground, and a pool. The park is still in good condition today. There is some graffiti and the water fountain by one baseball field was ripped out. But all in all itís a nice little park.
Property taxes are through the roof and it is very difficult for people to survive here. Every year out local News Channel hosts a show about the,ďBrain DrainĒ on Long IslandĒ. What that means is that college graduates cannot survive here anymore. As soon as they graduate the kids move out of NY. Those of you who have fond memories of Brentwood are better off living where you are now. Trust me. Iím sure it would be nice for you to come back, find the house you lived in and drive around the neighborhood. In fact, I do that still. But living here is much different than it was years ago and if I can find a job in my field out of state I would seriously consider moving.
I used to deliver papers on Westwood Drive, and yes - I knew Timberline Drive very well --- and The Witches.
