It was Lemmo, Moyer, Antonuk on one side of the 2nd floor; 'havin a hard time recalling the two rooms & teachers flanking the water fountain on the other side of the hall. Was there a Borst? Mr. Mothy taught drums in the basement next to the boiler and industrial eraser cleaning vacuum. Cost 25 cents for a 15 minute lesson- duly recorded with pencil in Mothy's little notebook. I still have an Antonuk polka band album.

Piano teacher: Miss Blatt.

Thank You! We were all weird and wonderful in the 70s. It was a great time to grow up. Does anyone remember the hair salon appropriately named "HAIR" on Genesee Street? A real Warren Beatty thing went on in there. And there was a boutique that sold groovy clothes for women and girls named "Bevs". And hobo bags from Reid Shelton and Kork Eze Platforms from Smith's Bootery. That was it for fashion but it was fine.

Macner's pub on Lenox Ave. Washington school where most of us used to hang out. Mr Softee ice cream truck. Anyone care to share their memories??
Wow, the story of my youth! We lived across the street from Tillie Greens on Oak, I picked up my Utica OD's to deliver at Mamie's and I hung out with the guys onthe steps in front of Cardinales. I still run into Norm Cardinale once in a while. Thanks for the memory!

The front steps of Cardinales was where all us guys hung out and pestered the girls as they walked by. I think they liked being pestered as sometimes they would walk back and forth 5 or 6 times!

I came back to Utica in 1976 and went to Washington School for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. Who was that kid who got his head stuck between the bars on the back steps of Washington school where we used to play tag on recess? I moved away and came back in my teen years. I remember playing manhunt, taking up whole city blocks with nothing off limits on Lenox Ave in the area of the Clarks house - Brian and Chuck. I went to school with Cornell's brother Johnny. It's so sad what it has turned into. Everything was so much simpler then. Corner candy stores, families that all knew each other. Reading this thread was bittersweet. Sad because it's gone and sweet because of the wonderful memories. Thank you all for your contributions to it.

There is such filth and disregard in that area and everywhere else now. It is really cool that people still can remember the innocent times and Mr's McNamara's 3rd Grade St Patrick's Day parade and the schools song. That was my childhood. Oh and Cardinale's grab bags. Those were the times.
