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.
