Some NYC nostalgia, but not for me.

However, I wouldn't mind having one of those turn of the century street lights to put at the end of my driveway.

That's a great site! I know of another abandoned subway station that wasn't mentioned but maybe it's been demolished (it was in Brooklyn and I haven't ridden that line in many years).

Some of those "antique" subway cars were still in use not too long ago.

Was going thru that site of yours James and what a surprise when getting on "Bronx - Borderline Crazy part 1" (Where East meets West Chester}
"some of the ugliest Junkyards you could ever hope for" with a picture no less.

Talk about a small world. A long time Army buddy of mine owned that Junk Yard. "Peartree Autowreckers". right there on that corner. (The Kreutzer Bros.) I have been in there a few times back in the 60s & 70s. It was quite an operation back then.

Boy, if that does'nt bring back memories. I'm going to give him a call and link him up with this site. He sold it out few years back. Wonder if its still there.

Thanks for the site James.

No Glenda. This was one of my good Buddies, a New Yorker.

The last time I saw Pierre (gung ho) he had married a German gal while serving in Germany. We were at his house drinking beers and watching one of those War movies about the Germans fighting the Americans. It turned into a free for all between his Wife rooting for the Germans and him rooting for the Americans. The Wife and I left when the bottles started flying. Sad

Having grown up withing two blocks of the Brooklyn Navy Yard,having gone to school (Long island U.) downtown Brooklyn and having ridden the length of Flushing Ave on my bike as a kid it was a thrill seeing some of the old places. Includng the Building which one housed the Albee Theater. I wonder if Broooklyn Hospital whch was next door is still there though!

Thanks again. It is always nice to relive some experiences!
