Mello's or probably Milt's, but I don't recall a sub shop next to Emdin's. I think that sub place was where the "Subway" now. It faced the bank drive through window. I remember "Sonne's" jewelers
next to Emdin's, and the eye glass store might have been there as well. The "King Cole" laundry mat occupied a big space. Quite a fire there in the 70's, but they rebuilt. "Hemstrought's" and the post office was also on the other side of "Emdin's" on Genesee Street.

One of the greatest places in Utica was the King Cole ice cream parlor in the 50's. Sitting on the fence, flirting with the girls, listening to the "new" rock and roll as the cars drove round and round. It was the best of times.

I think you're right about Loblaws now that you mention it. Must have lost those brains cells in the late 60's. Also Shoppers City next to White Tower.

Don't forget Tasty cream. That place was so nice way back in the day. They had the picnic benches out front were you could sit out and enjoy you ice cream or whatever, and a mini golf course in the back. The owner was there everyday he was such a nice man he would give me a free ice cream all the time. What happen things were so much better back then I also remember dan dee donuts was right next store and everyday for two years my father would go out with me on my paper rout afterwards we would stop at dan dee donuts for hot chocolate and a bagel

Mel Gooch was the Cadillac dealership before Brian Bar took over.

Loblaws became an A&P grocery store in the mid 60's.

That whole area had a lot of class back then, and lots of fond memories indeed!!:)
