If you have read some of these posts, I have been banned from posting to these people. I do remember your name from that time periord but did not meet you.

I did not grow up in the city but do remember all the good times once I moved to West Utica.

Tolpas for milk and those wooden crates full of 32 oz glass bottles of soda...grape nehi for me and ginger ale for high balls....pulaski's for kielbasa, Chicago market for most all else. Except baked goods....my grandparents were loyal to half a dozen different bakeries for different items. Hempstraughs was a retail outlet on Lincoln ave, but I think that was later? We'd venture to east Utica for pusties and pizza.

I thought the neighborhood was diverse because my polish grandparents had an Italian neighbor on one side and a Lebanese on the other.

Did spilkas used to have a sign that advertised clams?

My grandfather was really involved in youth baseball....the Angels? Were they a plav team? He and I also used to walk to the ballpark to see the blue sox in the 80's...they ere rookie league for the phillies but gramps still thought they were overplayed professionals.

Commandants? Was that a polish hall?

I was born in Utica and lived there until 77, but visited often in the 80's and occasionally until about 5 years ago. Heading back soon and dreading what I will see....

Spilkas had clams on the porch, I think the hotel part upstairs is still open. If you havent been in Utica in awhile you are going to cry like the Indian in the old littering commercial in the70's. STAY AWAY FROM THE WEST SIDE.Its bad now.

Typical response. I guess you're not part of society. When society lost it's humanist side is when things started going downhill. People would rather point, comment, and keep their hands clean then trying to change society for the better. I was on the West side tonight. It'd be nice to get some new roads there and tear down some empty buildings. You wouldn't want to pay for that, though, would you?

who were the macners' that owned the pub and store in the 1970's?
i think it was great that people who lived on the same streets followed similar living and did things together...it most definitely created a better neighborhood and it was easier to tell who the trouble makers were..now we group things by age , health, and income...but on the plus side we have more individuality...
my grandfather owned that pub- Frank Macner. Pop died in 86 and so did the pub
