Brooklyn Back When - Open Thread

Wow, I just heard about the blog from Rita Negri. I was wondering if anybody remembers my brother, Eddie Elardo, and I. I would especially like to hear from the Horans and anyone who went to St. John the Evangelist. After reading so many of the comments, it brought back so many great memories. One thing I didn't hear about - does anyone remember the "club" on 7th Ave and 15th St. I think the Fox family kind of organized it. I remember we used to go there and dance and bands played there. My cousins are Georgette and Joann Magnavita from 20th St. too. Anybody out there?

  • Subject: I'm here

    Hi Barbara,

    I'm out here in cyberland (actually Ronkonkoma, NY).....just returned from a full Labor Day weekend of kayaking in Rhode Island with a group called MASK. A few weeks ago, we did our annual 33 mile (all day paddle from Liberty Park across the harbor and then all around Manhattan island.

    This is the first post I am trying since they moved the thread. Hope it works.

    Did you see any of my earlier posts ?

    Barbara Gil, are you related to Jeanie Bianco. She married my cousin Robert?
  • I have been a bit reluctant to posting a blog, since I am not sure how many people actually remember me .. or care about what I have to say.. I have been reading all the posts for the past month, and listening to all the stories about the old neighborhood.. I have seen all the familiar names from the past, mentioning all the old stores and landmarks..I must say, it brings back tons of good memories..

    Ralphie Trochheo - I am sure you must remember me, I lived at 318 19th st., my family was on the block for nearly 60 years... I remember your brother Anthony, Louie, your sister Anna Marie, who is my age, and I think you had an older sister as well.. I remember your mom and dad, and the Wildcats and Bonnevilles he always drove.. The reason I am answering this blog tonite is because ironic as it might sound, I dropped my youngest son off at PACE university in NYC today, and passed thru the old neighborhood.. I stood in front of my old home, which was nothing more than an empty lot that had been leveled.. You remember my house, the one across from PS 146, with the house setback and the attached garage.. Actually my grandparents house the Morro's.. As I strolled down the street I pointed out your old home to me wife Judy Giordano from 27 st., and I said, I knew the family that lived here, the Trochheo's...

    Terry (TAS),

    You should try to get this message out to as many people as possible. It is too bad that this instruction wasn't sent out before the switch was made.

    One thing you might do as a start is to copy and paste your message below and post it on all of the current posts asking people to reply from now on to one specific post.

  • Hi Barbara Elardo (Gill),

    Rita told me that you were coming on here. I hope you're well. Say hi to Eddie, your husband and kids.

    Instructions to the right page are as follows:

    Go to the bottom of the page and hit "Brooklyn Back When"

    Then look through all the topics until you see "DAILYSLOPE"

    Go into that topic and stay there. Most people are in that "topic".

    I hope this helps.
    :roll:

  • Subject: Terry Everyone is going to have to get used to this

    Hello Everyone. Do not hit new topic, just click reply.

    At this point I have all the memories I can handle. When we all see each other at he reunion we can tell all the stories we want to.. Of course that beautiful blog had to be ruined, the same way Park Slope has been ruined.
    Glass Towers on 23rd street. St John's a Condo etc etc.

    Do we get any of the advertising money that comes up on our topics???

    I will stay in touch with my sister Christina for now on.. See you all at the reunion.
  • Subject: Milkboy # 1

    Does any other graduate of St. John the Evangelist remember volunteering to deliver milk to the classrooms ? The kid who showed up first got the "best route" (list of classrooms).
  • Terry Angelo:
