- Lived in my grandmothers home (Anna Berding) on Palmetto St until we moved to Jersey in 1964. We kept the house in Ridgewood until my grandmother died. Does anyone remember my grandmother Anna or Mom Jeanne and Uncle Richard from Ridgewood in the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's?

- I was born on Grove st. bet. Woodward and Fairview. I went to St. Bridget's and then St. Michael's H.S. in Bklyn.It was a carefree existence. You went out in the morning and were with friends and knew you had to be home for dinner. We biked to Highland Park reservoir. We watched boys play basketball at the PS 81Q Annex on Seneca Ave. I went out with a Paul Muller from Onderdonk Ave. who worked at Benekson's drugstore on Harmon and Onderdonk. Bowling and roller skating were big time pastimes at Woodhaven lanes and hillside roller rink. I later taught at PS 68 on St. Felix Ave. for over 30 years. The neighborhood has changed but the memories have not. I recently visited the area and was quite impressed with all the Polish stores and the resourcefulness and hard work of the new immigrants.
I also grew up in Ridgewood
- I do remember a Joseph Lynch.It was a great place to live .Shopping on Myrtle ave and Knickerbocker ave.I lived on Grove Street Loved going to Gottliebs,Colletties ice cream parlor, those where the day's my friends..

When she broke up with me her girl friend mary mcdonal said I would forget her. So mary if you see this I want you to know I still have not forgot the most beautifull girl I ever dated.
- still looking for guys that I grew up with on Madison st. between seneca ave. and cypress ave. I have heard from tony peralta who was a really good friend who introduced me to my wife Angela and supposed to be my best man but was on a carrier off of Korea. I too am a Korean Vet and damn proud of it. If anyone grew up on Madison St. send a note. I now live in Florida with my wife and have been here for 20 years. Get in touch before I kick the bucket
