Hey gang. I lived at 7032 4th Ave adjacent to 72nd St between 1965-1971 with my parents, Walter and Patricia Bradley. Mom was an RN working at Victory Memorial and Brooklyn VA. We would go to OLA Church and as a kid attended The Good Shepherd and Leif Ericsson Day School. Remember playing in the courtyard with other kids Dale Olson and Tommy Sweeney, I think his Dad worked in the building. Among sweet memories I have as a kid are watching Lost in Space with other kids in the building, Lusk's, going to Shea Stadium cheering the Mets, nut pound cake from Quattlender's, and The Lamps of China. Bay Ridge was a special place to me growing up with my family. One memory I will always wonder about was a kind and friendly older lady who would always be hanging out her window on the first floor of the building, just watching the street and people around 4th Avenue. You could tell it was her favorite thing to do. Wonder what happened to her. Live in South Carolina now. Contact me if you remember me or these things I mentioned.

Have lots of great memories of Bay Ridge and the Knights was Oh What a Night. Wish we could go back to the Disco days in the Ridge. Hanging out at the clubs on 3rd Avenue and doing the Hustle. She was a great dancer because she had a great teacher.

Remember when they filmed Saturday Night Fever in Bay Ridge. Saw John Travolta filming the scene in White Castle on 92nd and 4th Avenue. Love all the disco songs - Rock the Boat - Oh What a Night - Do the Hustle, some of my favorites. Congrats Johnny to you and your son. We were so close!!!!!

I grew in Bay Ridge. 7119 Shore Road Apt 5K I attended OLA and graduated in 1956 - much to the joy of the good nuns who had to put up with my behavior. I graduated from Fort Hamilton HS in 1960. I played stickball in 72nd Court and on Narrows Avenue with Teddy Hamway, Peter Rutledge, John Oak, and Richard Moderno.

Just sitting here and thinking about days gone by. Guess it's a New Year's Eve thought. Mike Garrigan came to mind and I stumbled upon the Bay Ridge Site. This was hot about 10 years ago for Saint Anselm's Youth Center kids. We had our own link but I guess it gone but my memories of Bay Ridge will never fade. I had a blast and I am so glad to say I was a part of a fantastic place to grow up and had the coolest band in Bay Ridge.

Hi Bay Ridge, I lived on 58th St between 8th & 9th Ave. Pals with Richie Mattei, Jimmy Johansen, Kevin Fossum, Lenny Peters, Hubie Padden, Bobby Cimino, Kenny. Later years hung out on 59th St & 8th Ave with Dennis Kelly, Larry Iacono, Natalie Maddalena, Maureen Higgins, Tootie, Pat Kenyon, Jane(Dion) Di Santis. OLPH dances on Friday nights,fun times. Also remember the girls on 60th St, Pat Nastasa, Clelia, Loretta(secret crush), Maria. My brothers name is Eddie, 3 years younger than me. Went to Vietnam 1968-1969, met Butchie Miller from 6th Ave, who was a sniper, in the middle of the jungle(talk about a small world), hope he made it back. Still go back every so often as I still have friends there.

Anyone who attended St. A's and graduated in 1964. Anyone who grew up around 78th between 3rd and 4th avenues. Anyone who remembers Frs. Sepi, Bogart, Monsignour Kelty; Lentos, Varian's stationers, Vinny's Butcher shop, Phil's shoe repair...I get back to NYC and BR when I can. The roots run deep throughout having lived in six states. Would love to hear from contemporaries. Glad Bay Ridge still continues strong in the 21st century
