I LIVED AT 133-87 HOOK CREEK BLVD ROSEDALE 1938-1962. I graduated in 1959 and lived in Rosedale until 2004.
MY FAMILY OWNED MULVANEY'S TAVERN FROM 1938 TO ABOUT 1960. I am currently living in Glen Oaks but only until January as I just bought a home in the Sebastian area of Florida. I also remember what a great town it was and how life was much more simpler back then.
I joined the Air Force (at that time it was still part of the U. Army) I flew a P-51 on escort missions for B-24s over Germany.
Does anyone out there remember Walter's taxi or Marder's pharmacy, and who among you can tell me what happened to P. I delivered clothing from the tailor shop that was just on the west side or the rr trestle on 243st after school on my bike for 5 cents a delivery.I married in 1948 and we had 2 sons and a daughter.I worked for my uncles at a wholesale grocery they owned in Brooklyn and when they retired I bought it from them.That was my carfare to Jamaica and then on the el to Bklyn.I went to Queens College (up in Jamaica Estates) for 2 years until the war interrupted.Bar Mitzvah from Laurelton Jewish Center..be the 50th anniversary of my Bar Mitzvah soon. We lived first on 233rd Street - next door to the Rothbards and across from the Horowitz family and up the block from the Des Gaines on the corner of 233rd street and 139th Avenue in a big corner house with about 100 rose bushes from about the late 1950's. I remember playing in 156 school yard tag and the huge Great Dane on the corner next to the school.
