And I am proud of it because where I live now, everyone knows I am from up north... Even Massapequa has a lot of famous men and women, like Steve Guttenberg and Jerry Seinfeld... I could also hear her coming because she always wore the kind of dress that made a wooosh sound when she walked down the hall. In Harbor Green, there was always a roaming gang of wild kids playing on the streets, running through neighbor's backyards, playing at construction sites; and having fun on the beach.So that is something to talk about around the water cooler here where I live. On Riviera Drive, there was always a group of kids playing outside. She enjoyed the stories about my personal rebellion against authority figures at the school. She taught us the symphonette and from that I went on to play the clarinet and was in the band all the way through high school. Last time back in mass was three hrs ago maybe on a trip somewhere else. I started kindergarten at Hawthorne elementary in 1958. We all had to learn to play the symphonette, a flute-like instrument that ( I think) her husband may have invented??? My kindergarten teacher was Miss Curtain and the art teacher was Miss Walshmock. We join our hands in friendship beneath the gold and blue.
The time in Harbor Green was the best time in my childhood. I guess it was too much trouble for my parents to cart me back and forth. We had Mitzi's deli, and Dino's Pizza (which was actually quite decent.) There was also George's Jip Joint, and Chicken Delight. The first time I visited In n Out in Los Angeles I was shocked to see the interior colors, decor and menu items were a dead ringer for All American.
It is messages like yours that make this website such a gem. I grew up in Massapequa Park, so most of my early childhood memories are from there, but I do have memories of Harbor Green, Pizza Supreme (the best pizza), All American, and Carvel, as my older sister had friends from there. I remember the night the farmer's market burned, I remember the excitement surrounding the opening of Pequa Bowl, and have fond memories of playing in Tackapusha park with my friends that also live in the apartments over their parent's stores.
I read these posts and I am transported back to a simpler time. Back to neighborhoods and kick the can and staying out until the street lights came on. Francie's dad owned the luncheonette and the chocolate egg creams there were outstanding.
It's been over 20 years or so, but I will never forget Massapequa. It was so good and I remember my brother's looking in the parking lot for my Mom for receipts that people would throw away. I played the cello at Hawthorn from fourth grade till six grade. 😀 I went to St Rose of Lima for first through eighth grade even though I can see Hawthorne from my front stoop. The Candy Store in that shopping center represented a special treat because being there meant my parents didn't know we had strayed so far away.
I catch up with old friends and family, and one thing is for sure: my Long Island accent will always stay with me. I’m 64 years old and I can remember when I was in Miss Curtain’s kindergarten class, smelling Miss Johnson’s perfume long before I’d see her coming down the hall. Loved the trips to sing in orphanages, nursing homes and the mall! Also, the best part of going to "All American", was the rumbling of the whole potatoes, as they rolled down the steel tracks above the counter, falling into the potato slicer, and then into the fryer.
