Brooklyn Back When - Open Thread



  • Good morning and a Happy 4th of July to all!

    Sorry that I can not sympathize with the few Soccer fans in the U.S. It is to me the most boring PROFESSIONAL sport there is. School Soccer at any level okay. But to pay and watch nothing happen for a couple of hours is not for me. The NFL and MLB are what I enjoy. That does not mean I find anything wrong with someone else enjoying it.
  • Happy and Safe 4th of July to all. Enjoy the weekend.
    To all July friends
  • Have a great weekend, my friends

Samantha graduated Ft Hamilton H.S. and will be going to College of Staten Island in September. On top on all that Kati got engaged!! They decided to wait at least 4 yrs so she can finish college. All happy news!!

  • Hello All,
    1st of all I want to thank all of you for the well wishes. I will be entering the Hospital shortly for the minimum 3 day evaluation with the heart drug called Tikosyn. I would rather not put on line the exact dates since I have become very security conscious. Saw my Cardiologist for a fleeting moment today and he assured me that I will come through this what ever you want to call it, just fine. He thinks this drug is just what I need to correct some of my remaining heart problems. There was a character on either Jack Benny or Fred Allen's radio program who's last name was Pierce. He used to say to everything "I hope, I hope
    I hope I hope it all works out okay". Without repeating all those hopes I feel the same way.

    The only things I remember at Bartel-Pritchard Square (really a circle) were The Sanders Movie theater, Lewnies Ice Cream Parlor and attached, Lewnies Bar & Grill. Across the street (PPW) was an entrance to Prospect Park. ( there was another Lewnies Ice Cream Parlor on 9th St and PPW. They had a big fresh roasted peanut stand in the store. My Father on occasion would walk me up 9th St and stop at Lewnies. buy a bag of Peanuts and we would sit on a park bench inside the 9th St entrance and feed the Squirrels!) In the middle of BP Square was the big Trolley stop for the McDonald Ave. (Coney Island Trolley) Smith Street Trolley and there was another but I am not sure if it was the 7th Ave Trolley or the Ft Hamilton Pkwy Trolley. The other two corners I am drawing a blank for. There very well could have been a Socony-Mobile gas station with the Pegasus sign. They were all over the place. Remember, Socony stood for Standard Oil Co of NY. I believe they had to spin off Mobil during the Monopoly hearings. How many of you remember "Dino" the Dinosaur on the Sinclair Stations.
  • Hi Warren
    Good luck with the evaluation.
    I'm sure it will all work out fine!!
    I remember the dinosaur b/c I associated it with Dino from the Flintstones. Lol

    Have a great night!!
