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

Greetings Bay Ridge from the Albergo family, the original owners of 'Six Brothers Hardware' on 5th Avenue where they filmed 'Saturday Night Fever.' Forget all the rest... 6 Bros. was the best. Great memories of Bay Ridge and our terrific customers.

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.
