    How about Crossroad Drugs, on Queens Blvd at Rego Park subway stop.

    Bloomingdale’s on Horace Harding.

    Oasis Bagels on Hoarce Harding.

  2. it is quite sad that most train stations these days are horrendously overloaded .

    My family owned Gebhardt’s Restaurant at 65-06 Myrtle Ave., Glendale. It was renowned for great German food at good prices. The restaurant no longer exists. People would come from far & wide, incl celebrities like Carroll O’Connor (Archie Bunker), Paul Newman, Jimmy Durante, amongst others. What a great restaurant it was!!!

      Judi, My grandparents lived above Gebhardt’s in the 1940’s till my grandfather died in the 1990’s!!!! I lived there for awhile, too. My grandmother Cecilia worked their as did many of my relatives, and my grandfather’s second wife, Elsie. 6506 Myrtle was their address. My Tante Annie worked their too and lived next to us. We’d go out the back bedroom window and over the rooftop into her back window to visit. Wonder if we knew each other or your parents…would love to correspond!

      Judi, I grew up going to Gebhardt’s and actually married a Gebhardt from Long Island that did not know of any connection to the people who owned restaurant. I have done extensive family research on our Gebhardts and was wondering if you had info on the original owners.Thanks

    What ever happened to Jahn’s Ice Cream Parlor on Jamaica Ave in Kew Gardens/Richmond Hill border? Even my parents went there in the 1940’s & 50’s.

  5. I would love to see GiGi’s of Westbury in 1974. That is where I had my wedding reception. I would love to see a picture of it.

    Does anyone know when Eintracht Oval, the soccer stadium on 37th Street & 20th Avenue in Astoria closed & was torn down to make a shopping center?

    My grandfather used to own a pharmacy called Forest Parkway Pharmacy at 8035 Jamaica Ave. until the 70’s. If I remember correctly, it intersected Woodhaven Blvd. Have been searching for pictures or information about it for quite some time without success. If anyone has a picture of this area from that time or knows where I can look to find pictures of businesses in Woodhaven, I’d greatly appreciate it.

    anyone have a picture of the travelers hotel and night club in queens

  10. Does anyone remember a store called SAM’S near PS1? It was a local knockoff of the famous JOHN’S – more commonly known as “Cheap Sam’s” & “John’s Bargain Store”, respectively. ( Kids regularly snuck out of the schoolyard to go there and other places around the area — diners, candy stores, etc.) Any of this familliar?

  11. Jeffrey Feinberg

     /  July 23, 2015

    Does anyone have the name or picture of a futuristic white “space ship igloo” bank in the parking lot of a Long Island Mall. I forgot the name. I think it is gone. Haven’t been to Long Island for 25 years.

    Who remembers the famous Hill`s super markets in the late 50`s and 60`s on Long Island they were based in Farmingdale,LI i worked at one in Centereach when i was a kid !


     /  January 27, 2018

    I recall a bar somewhere in NYC that had about two inches of peanut shells on the floor…and patrons just contributed more. I guess in those days peanut allergies were uncommon (or undiagnosed).
