Wow, I just tripped over this web site and have been reading the postings for an hour and a half. Great memories. I grew up on Colonial Rd. and 89 St. Went to St. Anselm's, graduated in 1961 and to La Salle in Manhattan. I also remember all the Friday night dances at the Catholic schools, fishing on the 69st pier, playing ball at the parks on Shore Rd. and hanging out at Hinsch's, Mitchell's drive-in, Green Tea Room in the 60's. Loved to ride my bike with neighborhoold friends by the Belt Pkwy.and drag racing along 7th Ave.(as teenagers) by the highway. Remember great pizza, Ebinger's, The Studio, buying records at Burnbaum's on 86th St. and Gill who drove the Good Humor truck. Couldn't think of a better place to grow up. FYI, my brother Jerry (64)lives in Tacoma WA and brother Joe in Rutherford NJ (57). Retired recently from Butterball as Director of Marketing Research. Would love to hear from old neighbors and friends!

Hi I am Ray Connors, I was so enjoying reading the postings, What a great place to be from , I owned Dr, Feelfunny's Along with John and Tony. It was a Dream come true and hope that everyone remembers having a good time, My Dad same name was a long time bar owner in bay Ridge,, also. I went to of course P.S. 104 was around the corner from the club, At the time there were some old teaches there that remembered me as most likely to succeed at anything. Bay Ridge was the Greatest I go back and see every year but it has changed, Still a few left. I am now retired and live in Scottsdale. Hear from Some Digbat's and some Banana Fishers.And can find old friends at Chadwicks. RAY

Home is now: Manalapan, NJ Posted on: May 25, 2011 Grew up in Bay Ridge and go back all the time. OLA 1975, OLPH HS 1979. Nothing compares to growing up in Bay Ridge. It was wonderful. Sad to see how 5th avenue has changed. When I grew up store owners cleaned the steet and everyone new knew your family. You were known from what parish you were in, OLPH 50-60 street, OLA 70's St Anslems 80's St Pat's 90's. Schools were filled with 8 grades and 30 kids in a class. Everyone new your brother or sister or cousin. I left bay ridge to find a parking spot 13 years ago. When asked where I'm from I still say Bay Ridge Brooklyn It will always be home.

To the person who asked if anyone remembers Jennifer San Marco, I do -- I went to Murrow High School with her. Not sure if you're aware of this, but several years ago she killed seven people in California (six at the postal faicility she had been fired from, plus one neighbor), as well as herself. She has gone down in history as the having the highest body count of any woman mass murderer in the U.S., as well as the biggest postal facility murder spree (at that particular time). I remember her as a pleasant and always nice person. Evidently, she developed severe mental problems at some point in her life. Sad that it ended the way it did.
