  • Howdy All!

    A buddy of mine from the Midwest travelled to NYC metro area to visit his sister and he asked for travel advice. I gave him an itinerary & advised that he see the real NY & avoid the pricey touristy places. He saw down town Manhattan, Grand Central, down town Brooklyn, Montague Street, the Promenade, many beautiful old brownstones, & took the subway to other spots. Much to my surprise the thing he enjoyed the most was Prospect Park! He enjoyed Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn Museum, Library, but regretted not having time to see the Botanic Gardens. You could tell that he sensed there is a very special character to these environs and this was a scene he will not soon forget. In fact, he saw so much that he was exhausted after all that walking!

    Well, as we all know, Brooklyn is special indeed!

  • Prodigalson Prospect Park was one of my favorites growing up.

    This time of the year rolling down the hills in the leaves and playing was great. Hills I thought were so big at that time and now look small. lol

    Good night sweet dreams all

  • Good Morning to All...

    Happy Monday

    Little chilly her in Staten Island today about 50 degrees...

    I love the summer I am cold already lol

    Have a great day

  • Hey Everyone, Here is a new question that was posted on the general Brooklyn Back When board.

    schooner said:

    Hi Guys/Gals The gym: THE LAMPLIGHTERS BOXING GYM was across the street from: Boro Park Theater on New Utrecht Avenue. Right across the street upstairs from a store that sold lamps. It had NOTHING to do with the store.

    The WelterWeight Champion Of The World: Paddy DeMarco sponsored the club in the early 1950's I use to train there.

    Do any you guys/gals have any info or remember that gym ?

    To reply to Schooner, follow this link:

  • Prodigalson

    saw this in that site.

    Get spooked on the Green-Wood cemetery walking tour

    I was spooked every year the day after Halloween (all saints day)Wwe would be off from school (catholic school) and we would go to 5th avenue to Greenwood. We would see all kinds of things. We were young and we figured the souls of the dead came out Halloween night. We would see newspapers, a pillow near a tree all kinds of crazy things. We really did believe the spirits came out Halloween night.

    One never knows do one?

  • I've deleted Judy's unsuccessful picture-posting attempts.

    Judy, please see picture-posting instructions here:

  • Hi All!

    It's Election Day so please take the time to exercise your patriotic duty. I did so earlier to day.

    For now, I just watched this gem from youtube:

    I always had a love/hate relationship with those subways. Yeah, they generally worked efficiently - but I hate the rush hour crowds! Still they took me where I wanted to go and it remains one of the most efficient transport systems in the world.

    :)

  • G'morning Friends in God's Country.

    I hope the weather is fine & that all is well.

    Here in St Paul, I am so glad our building management put in triple thick windows. When I cracked the window open just to get a touch of fresh air, you could hear the winds outside howling like a pack of hungry wolves. Yes, it gets very cold & windy in the Tundra and Winter is still a few weeks away.

    BTW, am reading Betty Smith's tome A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. Bet you hadn't heard of that one in a long time!

    :)
