thanks sid and louise sid i moved to fl this year everything good sold my house in dykerheights living in the villages fl great place to be the last time me frank damante and frank cuomo went to visit ps 27 it was a mess went to coffey park and our hang out the american can building hope all is good with you

Sid W 10-18-2014 07:51 AM
Richie, There is no more PS27 as it was closed. There are now two or three charter schools using the building. If you want to go to a public school you have to go to either PS142 or the new school in the point PS15 which also replaced PS30

Louise**Red Hook** 10-21-2014 10:54 AM
The building of PS27 still stands but as Sid said it isn't 27s any longer...the school went way down, poor reading and math marks, not like when we were there. The teachers back then wouldn't stand for it..We had great teachers AND it was a good school. So sad what time has done....

Sam, You should not have not mentioned Mrs Cox on this site as my knuckles are not hurting just thinking about her and all the time I got whacked across them by her for either chewing gum or eating nuts in the classroom or just not paying attention.

Is nicks still there amd the clinton movie house

Ken 10-16-2014 04:33 PM
Yes Nick's is still there and is a very popular spot.However, younger people would not know it by Nick's or as I remember "THe American House". It's called, I believe, Delfini's.Same place - same location. The Clinton Theater has ben closed for a long time.

Louise**Red Hook** 10-17-2014 08:21 AM
Yes Nicks is still there. Us old timers call it Nicks, today they call it Delfontes. The Clinton is long gone along with all our memories...

Sid W 10-17-2014 06:05 PM
Richie, How have you been. It has been quite awhile since you been on. The last time I was in Nicks it was in 1982. Do I miss that place. The Clinton theater is all bricked round the front with one entrance in the side. I think it is some kind of learning center now.

Growing up in Brooklyn in the 60s, I played stick ball with Little Tommy, Dag the Man, Herbie, and Bill Young (the Youngster). Are any of my old pals on this site? My email address is Bernie@metropolitanroom#@*%! (please don't encrypt it, I'd like to get in touch with folks).

I'd love to hear from any of the old gang.

Bernie, it comes out right on the left (that sounds funny) so when you put it in and submit it prints out the correct email address on the left side.

There was a Billy Young from the Red Hook Point. He went to Visitation School. Not sure where he went after he left Wolcott St. Not sure if this is the same Billy Young that you knew

pvc. 10-13-2014 11:42 AM
Mike I knew a Billy Young. we called him Billy Bones. Irt may be the same guy.

Mike C 10-14-2014 05:21 AM
Phil Karen might know Billy Young from Visitation

Louise**Red Hook** 10-17-2014 08:19 AM
It is called Delfontes BUT lol us old timers called it Nicks.

Frankie Nerves 10-20-2014 09:38 AM
That would be DeFonte's.

DelFonte's just might be a singing group. :-)I can hear them now singing in the boy's room for that great echo.... yeah that was them. The DelFonte's

need someone who may be able to tell me if there is or was a street by the name of OSWEGO that ran between Richards & van brunt...............many thanks......sincerely southland

Marie R 9-30-2014 07:02 PM
Not to my knowledge. Richards was the next street over from Van Brunt. They run parallel to each other.

Ferris~Conover~Van Brunt~Richards then Coffey Park.

Ostego St. comes off of Dwight St.

Frankie Nerves 10-2-2014 06:58 AM

Marie R 10-2-2014 10:15 AM
Thanks Frankie N.
Been saying it wrong for years. Lol

southland 10-2-2014 02:32 PM
marie my question was not asked properly,ishould have asked if the afore mentioned st.ran from Richards to van brunt ..
I can not place Dwight a st close by after all its been 60yrs. since I left there...sincerely southland

Louise**Red Hook** 10-2-2014 03:39 PM
Richard St then Dwight St...

Ken 10-3-2014 04:25 PM
It would be more clear if you go to mapquest dot com and type in Otsego st, Brooklyn,ny. You will get amap and you can see where the street is.
If you remember Keystone Paint was on Otsego St and Segourney st. I believe

southland 10-4-2014 01:17 PM
many thanks to all who responded to my request,

sincerely southland

southland 10-6-2014 02:00 PM
sorry for not asking before,how is your grand-daughter with bells palsey better I trust,from what I read it may leave just as it came on, certainly hope so, GOD is good..

by the way is the gas war still on in JOHNSON CITY ???
sincerely southland

Marie R 10-7-2014 03:39 AM
Thank you for asking, she is still the same, no improvement yet, she won't look in the mirror though. It breaks my heart. Waiting for results of blood tests which can take several weeks. Dr gave her a steroid . I'm exhausted from praying.
I don't know too much about Johnson City.
Thanks again, take care.

Whoya 10-8-2014 12:51 AM
Hi, Southland _ Where did you live in Red Hook? Im thinking you're looking to fill in a map. People mite not be able to spell it, but they know where it was, because they know. Oswego Street? We know where taht goes, and I bet you do too. Sell your story somelace else. Were paying attention.

Everybody else please pay attention to what you give outand to who.

Marie. I will pray for your granddaughter as well
There is a healing mass at Visitation
Church in Red Hook on Friday I will let
the Pastor now about your granddaughter
He is very good. He healed a woman of
lupus and another of a crippling disease
I am not saying he is the answer but
I will let him know about her.

Marie R 9-24-2014 09:10 PM
Elsie, thank you so very much. She is such a good child. I've been praying to St.Jude, he has never let me down.
Thank you again.

Sorry to burden you again with my problems, but we need prayers again. My 10 year old granddaughter woke up with Bells Palsy, half her face is paralyzed, she can't even blink or close her eye. Doctors don't say much, it could be permanent or not.

Any info anyone has on this subject will be greatly appreciated, and we'll take all the prayers we can get.

Hearing my daughter cry destroyed me. I'd rather it was me not the child.

God Bless. Thank you.

Shirley 9-22-2014 07:26 AM
I'll pray for her and you Marie, God is awesome!

Marie R 9-22-2014 02:56 PM
Thank you. She's having more tests tomorrow. I have St. Jude on overtime.

T.O. 9-23-2014 02:29 AM
Hi Marie, haven't been on this site in a while. Sorry to hear about your granddaughter. Wow, it has been one heck of a year for you and your family. I am praying for her and hoping that this won't be a permanent situation. I am also wishing that your daughter who suffered the dog bite is doing well, also. Keep us posted Marie, and God's blessings on you.

pvc. 9-23-2014 05:24 AM
shell be in my prayers .

p van cott 9-23-2014 05:32 AM
Marie i just sent st. judes a donation. I also did a little research. it may be a temporary thing that resolves itself in a month or so. there are treatments of the anti viral type that may either cure or halt the disease. it`s been associated with herpes which occures in the mouth as chankar sores. it sounds like the shingles that lays dormant in ones system as it did with me and suddenly erupts. it seems to be cureable so keep a good thought.

Marie R 9-23-2014 09:58 AM
Yes it has been a rough year. Last month my one year old great granddaughter caught MRSA from a bug bite. Thank God it didn't kill her. She was in the hospital and bombarded with antibiotics. She's OK.
The granddaughter with the Bells Palsy scare has panicked us.
She's at All Children's Hospital today. We're keeping our fingers crossed. One dr thinks it may be meningitis paralysis caused by their hamster feces. She had a cold sore that may have transmitted the virus to the facial nerve.

I know everybody has troubles, but when it's the little ones it hurts even more.

Daughter with dog bite is managing well. Still has nightmares though.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. It does help us a lot.

hey Sid I just found out from a friend that Vinny Lendino Is alive and well.Phil

Sid W 9-13-2014 11:23 AM
Find out how I can get in touch with him

phil van cott 9-13-2014 04:02 PM
I`ll try sid but no guarantees. he just shows up every once and awhile.

Marie R 9-13-2014 11:08 PM
Hi Sid and Phil, hope you both are well.

Phil, are you getting the beautiful fall colors yet?

They are starting here.

Frankie Nerves 9-15-2014 06:47 AM
C'mon guys! It ain't that hard. This guy is 71 years old. Hope it helps.

Sid W 9-15-2014 06:11 PM
Frankie, Thanks for the information. I had done the same thing you did and found it last night, but it may not be him. It may be his son and I will find out tomorrow when I call that number.

pvc. 9-16-2014 10:12 AM
Nothing yet but I`ll be out in it in about two weeks when the colors should be about a quarter of the way. Barns,corn fields and all.

Sid W 9-16-2014 02:04 PM
Frankie, I called that number and it has been disconnected.

pvc. 9-17-2014 05:03 AM
OK nerves any other suggestions, since your claim of not so hard really proved that it is? Nice try but again no cigar.

Frankie Nerves 9-17-2014 06:09 AM
Well I can't help it if the number is disconnected. I was just trying to help Phil. Forgive me if I minimized your efforts. There aren't a whole lot of Lendino's in Brooklyn. I thought that one may have been a good lead since his age is 71. In any event I found another Vincent Lendino at 48 Bay 20th St
Brooklyn, NY 11214-3802

No age given but some "associates" for lack of a better term are:
Frank Antonelli Jr.
Patricia Lendino
Alice A. Lendino
Joseph P. Lendino Jr
They are all at the same address and Joe Jr is over 65 years old. Brother??

Does anyone remember the year that Visitation Church decided to have First Holy Communion in November. Around Thanksgiving Day. We also had snow for the First Holy Communion day

Marie R 9-11-2014 03:42 PM
No, when did they change? My communion was May, 1955.

Mike C 9-12-2014 11:49 AM
Marie I think they only did it one year around 1951. After the bad weather they went back to having First Holy communion in May

Marie R 9-13-2014 11:05 PM

Today is my birthday but it is forever 9/11. Our enemies tried to destroy us but only managed to unite us more than ever. On 9/11/01 and forever our nation showed then that we will never be defeated. The brave men and women that gave their lives will never be forgotten. The NYPD & NYFD were and are heroes not only in NY but all over this nation.
I lost friends but so many people lost their family members. JuJu lost his son but is now reconciled in heaven with him.

Good to see you posting. There was the Red Hook reunion at the Post Saturday. People were asking for you. You are missed. One guy, Red Denny showed up from Hawaii. I haven't seen him in 50 years.It was raining but, it was a good affair.

Shirley 9-15-2014 10:18 AM
Hi Ken, I'm in Florida now. I miss everyone. Red Denny has been in Hawaii for quite a few years now.
Who knows, maybe i will drive up next year. Hope all is well with you and your family, best wishes.

Ken 9-15-2014 12:47 PM
Hi Shirley,
I hope you can come up. Maybe you can schedule some family visits at the same time. Yes Red Denny has been in Hawaii for over 50 years. He likes it.
Take care, Ken
