From Queens to the Emerald Isle
- Born in Jamaica Hospital, lived in Astoria for my first few toddler years, then we moved to Flushing (Kissena Blvd) for a few years, until my dad (God love him) discovered Rosedale. We moved there and Rosedale was home until my first move to my very first apartment, in Elmhurst. From there, I moved back to Rosedale for a couple of years with my best friend and boyfriend, and eventually we married, and moved to an apt. in Bayside, then moved again to Woodside. My hubby is from Ireland originally, we made the big decision to move one more time - quite a distance from my beloved Queens - to Ireland - about 14 years ago. As much as I love Ireland - I truly do love so much about living here in this tiny country cottage of ours in the wild west coast - I miss Queens so much of the time, for so many reasons, especially Astoria - Ditmars Blvd., also 21st St., where my dad had a candy store real, honest-to-goodness candy store!).
- —Guest Greek Girl from Queens
- I grew up in Queens. I was born in New York City and lived for my first five years in Flushing NY. Then my family and myself moved to Richmond Hill and I lived there until I was married at 21 to a young man originally from California and we moved to Ridgewood NY. Now I am in New Jersey. I've come a long way. Thank you MJ

KIDS ON 185TH ST HOLLIS
- IN THE 50's growing up in Hollis kids did not have to go to camp,we had our own right outside on our tree covered street. We played stoop ball , baseball and had roller skating games. It was a multicultral block and we learned to get along or work it out together. We walked to school together, either St. Gerard Majella or later Jamaica High School. There was a mutual caring for each family on the block. The Fuccillo's, the Pagliarro's, the Scotts, the Mc Affee's, the Jacoboson's, the De Luca's, the Rubino's. I still remember all of them! Where is everyone today, I am living on LI and loving it now.Would like to hear from the 185th ST KIDS.

Anybody know Laurelton, Queens 226th Str
- I went to I.S 59 on Springfield Blvd. I graduated with top honors. I went to Andrew Jackson High in 1982. I didn't finish there because, me, and a few old friends helped build what is known today as the "dollar vans that transport passengers to and from the E & F trains at Hillside & 168th Street. The E & F train ran on Hillside at that time. The dollar vans picked up & dropped off passengers 168 & Hillside Avenue. I left and went upstate to Poughkeepsie, New York to attend Marist College. I miss the action the Queens represent. Merrick Blvd in Laurelton was more livelier back then. Everybody knew everybody. I miss "Pops & Kims" grocery store on 229th Street? Remember "Zimmerman's hardware on 228 & Merrick? One girl I had a crush on was, Tanya Willams. She went to I.S 59 back then. I would love to see her again. She had my heart for life. Anyway, I am in Queens Village now. I like it here. I wish I could own the house that I grew up in on 226 street in Laurelton.

WOODHAVEN GIRL HERE!
- Moved to Woodhaven when I was 6 months old and lived in the same house for 18 years. Moved to California in 1978. I had the best childhood ever growing up on 89th St. My memories of Woodhaven are some of the best around. I created a group on Facebook called "Your Memories of Growing Up in Woodhaven". Reading all the posts there, brings me back to a more simpler place. Wish you could turn back time for at least just a day.

QB Kid forever
- I grew up in Queensbridge in Long island City, went to PS 112, 111 and JHS 204, Aviation High School class of 1979, and left New York for the Navy. I ended up in the San Francisco Bay area, been here for nearly 30 years. I love it here but I miss the New York of my childhood. No matter where I go, I'll always be a QB kid.

- Born and raised on 71st Plc off Myrtle Av, went to St. Pancras Catholic, Father Malloy High and St. John's University, then joined the Army to see the world. After a 20 yr military career, I've settled in Alabama with the wife and kids but still go back to Glendale often for the extended family. Growing up in Glendale, running with my friends, racing on Francis Lewis Blvd in the '70's - those were the days!
