Grew up on 80th St. between 5th & 6th, then to 77th St. sixth and seventh attending St. Anslem's, St. Ephrem's, and St. John's Prep. Brother Jack, sister Eileen. Parents moved to Westchester when I was at USMMA (left no forwarding address!!!). Married Marie Piovano, moved to Marine Avenue, then Sayreville, NJ, Tokyo, Geneva, etc., etc. Past 22 years in Davidsonville, just outside of Annapolis, and now Florida when I can get my wife away. Four children and 10 grandchildren. Get back to BR from time to time to see wife's sister's family. Great place to grow up. Loved stick ball, street hockey. Uncle was a policeman who would be driven home after work in a police car. All the stickball players would scatter anticipating someone called the police. He would jump out of the car yelling it was his turn at bat!!! A few neighbors did not care for that. We loved it.

I just got a clipping from the Bay Ridge Home Reporter paper stating that Hinche's Luncheonette closed Sept. 29th. The primary reason was its monthly rent was raised from $7,500 a month to $10,000. Spent a lot of time both in Hinche's and on the corner of 5th and 86th in the early 50's. At least until the cops made us move!! LOL

Just came across this site and I am fascinated. I haven't lived in Bay Ridge since 1956. Graduated Bay Ridge High in June 1949. Lived on 64th Street between 3 and 4 Aves. If any of my old friends know me please get in touch via gmail. I'd love to hear from you. I miss everything about BR. Those were wonderful years. I was a champion roller skater for 10 years. I skated at Bay Ridge Roller Rink. Those were the days. Thanks for letting me talk.
