Hi Et, Its me Toots, I was able to get on today and last night all these names were coming to me of old friends in the Hook and figured I would try. On Van Rrunt st there were a few girls, relatives I think Concetta, Caroline Scala Camille who I believed dated Jimmy Gallagher. Then does anyone remember the baseball games at Coffey Park in th 50s. The team was the Aces.. There were some guys names came to mind, friends of Tom Fisher and Georgie Penney. Fisher went to the prom with us Tall and red hair. O course I remeber carol and Roberta banks and Sylvia Silvetti who lived in our building at 146 Conover. I wonder if any of them go on thjis site, sure would be fun to hear from some of them. I see yoiu are talking to cousin Arthur Keep it coming this so great,,Millie

TommyB. 9-25-2006 12:04 PM
Hi madeline B. & Madeline F. This is for both of you, yesterday morning I was down on Hyland Blvd. down by where you live Mad F. As I was driving home I passed a nursery not far from Tysens Lane, the nursery is owned by my brother inlaws cousin John who came from 2nd Place. As I passed I noticed someone moving plants around, the person that I saw his father had a fruit store opposite my Dads on Court St.Ok Sis what was that stores name was it George's if I'm correct. Also once again where has everyone gone? Take care!

babyann 9-25-2006 04:49 PM
hello Tommy B looking forward to seeing you on Sturday, save me a dance.......and bring your memory recently I saw your friend Joe L, I believe he retired from TA told him about this site I hope he contacts you..

babyann 9-25-2006 04:55 PM
Hello all does anybody have pictures of our neighborhood when the Brooklyn Dodgers won the world series???? I do remember they hung dummies from lampost and burned them with the YANKEES written on it.
or the fires in the middle of the block in the street, with a pail full of fireworks in it. really something. Lets hope The METS win big time we need a little instant re play

Tommy B. 9-27-2006 12:18 PM
Hi Babyann, maybe we can get the site going again! I do remember back in the 60s when we used to hang the dummies from the lamp post & have barn fire's, I also remember Election day fires. When we had our fire's we would always collect the fire wood weeks in advance, much of the wood we collected was wine boxes because everyone in those days made homemade wine which I dont have to tell you! Now here is a little trivia for those of you in the Carroll Gardens area who were involed with those barn fire's, where did we hide the fire wood? Take care, I will see my Family & Friends Saturday Night.

RoRo 9-29-2006 07:59 PM
Hey Uncle Tom, the fruit store was called George's. Frances owned it, the guy you saw was her son Jerry. When she passed on, he closed down. I saw him at the nursery too.

This is for John Burkhard...I just read your story in the CarrollGardens/Cobble Hill Courier. What a SHAME that some one could be so mean to destroy something that is so important to Red Hook and the History of Red Hook. When I mentioned to a young man of 42 years old that works with me, who lives in the Red Hook Projects about the Fort & some of the history of Red Hook he was amazed. It is a shame that people want to be part of Red Hook but they really don't know the history that goes along with it. It surprised me when I found out about the Fort and that I didn't learn from any history book but you John and Thank you for taking pride in Red Hook and sharing your knowledge with us. Lets hear it for John, loud and clear now people. (((Thanks John)))...Louise

John Burkard 9-23-2006 10:27 PM
Louise, Thanks so much for your kind words. They help encourage me despite the obstacles.
John.....

The new owners of the building on 3rd St and Hoyt where the Magic Touch left the sign up.They said they won't take it down it's a land mark..plenty of memories .
MadelineF you must be thinking of another location its not a carpet store,they have not rented it since the bar closed.

Tom B correction on the twins owning the Magic Touch I think they owned a club. Who remembers the after hour clubs that were all over the neighboorhood?

Madeline Faiella 9-24-2006 08:13 AM
Madeline B

to Harold Trupp: I am Raymond's sister, eldest of the family and Arthur and Harold are my cousins and yes I remember Hazel very well. One of the really nice multitude of acquaintances of "old" Red Hook.

Harold Trupp 9-22-2006 09:41 PM
I apologize for the mistake, I left in 62, and just recently
got on the net. Mom is still
alive and lives in LI, and I'm
in Tx. I'm still in awe how
this thing operates. Cant't
wait to tell her I've spoken
with you.

artlarsen@aol.com 9-25-2006 07:23 AM
Hi: Ethel
This is your cousin Arthur nice to see all of you on here. Harold Trupp's sister Cheryl is married to my Wife Jorene's cousin Bobby Bonocore. They were to Lancaster PA 4 years ago for Jorene's family reunion.

Anna's husband Roy Caputo is Jorene's cousin, their mothers were sisters.

My Mom is doing good, she lives with Ray in the Poconos. Her mind is sharp, but she is geting frail, she will be 96.

I recently received a picture of the Frankfooter man John (in english) who was on corner of President St. & Columbia St. I think in the late 40's Thanks for this picture, it will go on the wall at 215 Columbia St. where all pictures of yesteryear are, If anyone has any pictures from Vanbrunt to Court St. Sackett to Hamilton Ave. please bring copies to this to the restaurant Cucina Napolitan (215) Columbia St. Memories are great it is fun when you having dinner and look at them, see some familiar faces you can relate to them or just wish you were born in this great neighborhood.

MedollaWines 9-23-2006 06:28 AM
Hello Babyann- Thats great! I had many "frankeefootas" there as a kid. The cart was a very bright orange color and you could smell the hot dogs a half a block away!- see you at 215!

babyann 9-24-2006 04:35 PM
