does any one remember a soft ball team called the braves.They played out of coffee st. park around 47to 1952

b en butler 11-14-2006 07:20 PM
Matty/Ben The Braves. I remember there were guys in the Hook with their Uniforms walking arounsd the neighborhood. i can recall they had an Indian on their Baseball Jerseys with a couple of feathers sticking up in the air on the shirts. Roy Caputo would know and Bobby Peterson may have played for them. They would go into the candy store across from the Dump.

Roy Caputo 11-16-2006 07:39 AM
Matty/Ben..I tell you I don't remember the Braves softball team. I do remember the Braves baseball team which my cousin Blackie played for. It included guys like Seto, one of the Gagliardo brothers and some real good players from the Hook. When they won they would ride through the neighborhood on the back of an old truck like they won the pennant. I think the truck belonged to Mr.Perensino. I met Mike Perensino one day and wanted to bring that up but forgot. Also here's a Fr. Moroney story. I'm standing in the sacresty with my brother waiting for my bride to show. Fr. Moroney say's I can't marry you. Your girlfriend's not catholic. So the church is full with family and friends... the hall is paid for...The cars are paid for and now you tell me you can't marry us. I wanted to say are you out of your f-in mind. But he would of kicked the shit out of me. I tried to explain she was babtised at the age of 12 so he had to look further in the books. I don't remember how I convinced him but he performed the ceremony. But...whenever I look at the wedding album which my wife still puts on the table every Oct.17 you could see Fr. Moroney "ain't" happy.

Ben Butler 11-16-2006 09:50 PM
Roy you got Maroney right. He was not the nicest person. Today he would be called a mean
"what ever" but didn't I know YOU would know who the BRAVES were. I kinda remembeer the truck and coming up with who owned it is amazing. Do I get a prize for this info. Soft ball, hardball who knew...
I only remember the Indian Head logo floating around the Hood.
I see from my last blurb I got the "no good deed wrong" .I guess with Holy Cross in the picture "dead" was on my mind.
Hey how about a post of your wedding picture and the guests.
What about it Roy. Bust it out of the album. Sofar we have gone from Buckey to Baseball and it's just great.Keep those cards and letters comin.

Happy Thanksgiving every one.
PS; Does anyone have any stories about Williams Ice Cream Parlor and Big George Meyers. I worked with him after Scotty went into the Navy
He had a big heart. He was a bit reserved but such a good man when you got to know him.
HE DID A LOT FOR SEVERAL GUYS WHEN THEY DIDN'T HAVE MONEY IN THEIR POCKET FOR A CUP OF COFFEE AND NEVER SAID A WORD.. I can't tell you the times he made me an ice cream soda on the arm.

Millie hutchinson 11-19-2006 08:24 AM

Ben Butler 11-19-2006 10:05 PM
Millie the closest I can get to them is the Four Aces with Al Albert in the lead appearing at the Paramount,Singing "Honey in the Horn"

What was their big song. Sorry can't help you on the Coffey Park Ace's team. There were so many at that time. The guys that hung out in Doughertys (spelling?)SALOON ON RICHARD AND kING could make up 20 teams alone. And I think they did.

Billy (Gabby) Grant might know. Billy where are you. Billy could also play football bigtime. Ya Shudda turned pro.

Greetings all:
I'm a journalism student at Columbia University and working on a story about Sunny's bar--I would be grateful for any and all stories Red Hook residents (present or past) feel like sharing, the further back in time the better.
Feel free to email me or send a phone number and I will call at a convenient time. Many thanks in advance.

madeline faiella 11-15-2006 06:38 AM
Damon Tabor,
What kind of stories do you want red hookers can give alot of them. All you have to do is ask or go down to 215 restururant and look at the pictures on the wall and ask question of the people and you will get many old stories about red hook

De Bock 11-15-2006 09:03 PM
I can provide the history of Sunnys Bar old photos of the establishment from the good old days of the Bar. It has been in my family for over 100 years. Feel free to e-mail me at and I will give you my contact information.

St. Charles Chapel was located on President Street and Van Brunt Street.It was a very old chapel.It was demolished in the late 70's.

Lucille Pellegrino Lopez 11-14-2006 05:53 AM
St Charles Chapel was part of Sacred Hearts St Stephens Church - they would have the records relating to the chape.

Chatlie 11-15-2006 08:40 PM
My Mom and twin sister Ann and Caterine Laface got married in St Charles Chapel due to St Stevens fire . St Stevens church on Summit was destroyed by a fire in 1950

Lucille Pellegrino Lopez 11-16-2006 05:40 AM
I remeber standing on Hicks and President Streets watching the fire. I remember someone who who was nicknamed Frank Sinatra (because he sang) ran into the burning church to save the hosts.

babyann 11-16-2006 08:07 AM
Hi Cathrine, are yo related to Lavender Tompkins Place and Anthony La Face in Staten Island ???if so HELLO

babyann 11-16-2006 08:11 AM
All who remember St Charles really was that not a beautiful church I loved going to mass especially on Christmas Eve now that was a church not like today they are tooooo Modern those churches do not smell like a church I am sorry they torn it down as much as they tried we lost. That Church had a great history.

Bill Sweeney,

There was a St. Charles Church on Warren Street between Court & Clinton. I used to go to bingo there. Don't know if it is still there.
Haven't been in that area for years

Bill Sweeney 11-13-2006 09:31 AM
Betty, I thank you for the information. I had never heard of that. Oddly enough I cannot find any Saint Charles Churches in the list of Catholic churches anywhere in the Brooklyn Diocese.

Bob Furtaw 11-13-2006 11:32 AM
There is a "Church of St. Charles Borromeo" at 21 Sidney Place, just off Clinton Street. This is probably what you are looking for.

Bill Sweeney 11-13-2006 06:34 PM
Bob, thanks, butI think that Saint Charles Borromeo is neart Myrtle Avenue and Clinton Avenue in Fort Green.

Fred Saez 11-14-2006 08:03 AM
Bill Sweeney, The Saint Charles Borromeo Church I know of is at 23 Sidney Place between Henry and Clinton Street in the Heights and has been there since 1849. Just walked past it last Sunday.

Fred Saez 11-14-2006 08:05 AM
Bill Sweeney, Oops sorry, the School is 23 Sidney Place, the church is 21.

Tommy B. 11-14-2006 01:36 PM
Hi Babyann & Mad F. I hope you are both enjoying the new edtions to your families. Now to change the subject a little lets get back to President St. like I talked about in the past, because between the both of you & my sister you all came from down below originally & should be familiar with St.Charles more then anyone. I talked about it in the past that between Columbia & Van Brunt on President St. there was only the Two florist,a couple of clubs & the store fronts where they did the straps & of course St. Charles,now help me out if I'm wrong. Now Mad F. talking about great nieces & nephews I think I'm up to 15. That is 9 boys & 6 girls & then there is Sal,Gina's son, who is my grea great Nephew. I only wish that I can see them more often especially the young ones, because they are so much fun to be around, my sister Madeline can verify that because half of them are her grandchildren lol, I'm lying only 5 are her grandchildren. I hope now that the Holidays are here the site can open up a little more with some of the names we heard a few months ago especilly my family. Take care,will talk soon.

babyann 11-15-2006 07:31 AM
Tommy B what are straps? for St Charles???? the only straps that I know of are "Bra"
My Mother & Yours and women in our neighborhood did they worked for extra money I know that is not what your talking about

babyann 11-15-2006 07:43 AM
Tommy B President St you forgot the restaurants too, there were 2 one near van brunt st. and the other near columbia st. on the corner was a French Cleaners and of course the frankfooter man lets talk about Union St. with all its venders and stores Chicken Markets, Bacacla (fish) store, fresh bar butter and eggs, goldman, espito port store, pastry store, deli off the corner and the famous fruite & vegetable store

Tommy B. 11-15-2006 05:20 PM
Hi Babyann, I do remember the cleaners but not the restaraunts, I also remember the hot dog vendor ,his name was Louie & I remember him having a son who was a friend of mind, his name was Sally Chink. I have mentioned in the past that Louie was my cousin Robert Nardo's uncle & if anyone has heard from Sally Chink, every time I see Robert I forget to ask him about Sally .Now getting back to President St.the store fronts I mentioned was where they did have something to do with bra's. Also I do remember the pastry store, was it Chioffi or Barbaro's ! Now talking about St Charle's,it is to bad we cant get more info about it such as a name of a Priest or something like that.Now once again it was good hearing from you ,will talk soon,take care!

babyann 11-16-2006 08:18 AM
Tommy Sally Chink I saw years ago I like to know what's up with him too. It would be nice if they have another reunion with the guys my cousins from carroll st. and Butchie and Louie R (the lawyer)

To Bill Sweeney;
I was reading that you are looking for a church that was located on president st? Yes it was near Van Brunt I think it was connected in some way with Sacred Hearts St. Stephens,located on Summitt St. The office is on Carroll St between Hick St. and Henry St.. Mother Carbrinie came from that parish.Phone number is 718-596-7750 Good Luck!

Bill Sweeney 11-12-2006 12:44 PM
Thank you Madeline. Yes, I did know that there was a Church on President Street, but when I started doing my genealogy I forgot it. I will have to call Saint Stephens to see what information I can get. We lived in Saint Mary's but had a good family who was a Priest there in the 1930s, Father Gorman. Thanks again, and best wishes.

He loves it down there. Take care Pete.

Hello Lou. Fr. Moroney Is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery In Brooklyn. Take care.

ben butler 11-13-2006 01:18 PM
A Father Maroney Short Story.

One Day in November 1954/55 maybe Porkey Ambery asks me if I would help him paint Father Maroney's Mothers TV antenna. This sounded like a can of corn,just check out any Red Hook roof top... so away we go upstate New York one very cold Saturday morning. How bad could the job be, with a little Aluminum paint. No problem. Well Mrs. Maroney lived in the middle of the mountains Upstate and the antenna had an
8 foot square concrete base that does up at least 50 feet high into the air and comes to a point with a regular house antenna on the top.

It was not exactly as I thought it would be. No good dead ever goes unpunished, doubly so if you come from Red Hook.(Has anyone ever noticed that) We painted all day and finally finished in the late dark and windy evening, almost frozen to death. My fingers still don't work right after that job.

Lou...When youi visit Holy Cross remind the good Father about our good work. (on the arm), by the way.

His prayers may help get me past the Golden gate in the far distant future,I hope. Sorry I mean the Pearly Gate.
I already did the Golden Gate several times. Who knows I may see him myself. Holy Cross, It may well be my last know address too..

Fortunately traveling up and back in the car to the Hook I said noting knowing instinctively that if I did Father Maroney might just hold it against me.

At 6'5 by 280 lbs. he was not a man to cross.
Hey... We did learn Upstate Antenna painting though.

Porkey advise that we should start rthe job at the top and work our way down. He was good with stuff like that.

See ya all

Benny Butler
Antenna paint work done cheap.

Hi Pete.OK lets start from square one. If you are the son of Vickie or Red and lived down the Hook, does the names Uncle Joe and Aunt Mae ring a bell. I'm their oldest son. You may know my younger brother Anthony or my sister Theresa...If you are the son of Josie and Victor well they lived down the Hook for awhile then moved to Bensonhurst. So you pbobably wouldn't know me. Although I did have Josie and her boys in my car one day. Pete, get back to me. Looking forword to hearing from you. Take care.

Hello Peter. My Mom and my Aunt Mollie (Blackies Mom) were sisters. We lived on the 2nd floor of 107 Walcott St. and my Aunt Mollie lived on the 3rd. Blackie would call me down on a Sat. morning and yell "get your glove" We would catch on Walcott St. until my glove hand was swollen.Later on in life he married Anna Bertucci from Pioneer St. I take it you knew Blackie. He was a great guy. And a great ballplayer. He was a big part of me growing up and learning to play. Take care.

This is for Bill Sweeney. There is a church on Sidney Place in Brooklyn Heights called St Charles Borromeo. Not far from where your family lived. Possibly, this is the St Charles church that your family attended in the 1800's. Here's their phone # 718-596-1362. They used to have a school also, not sure if they still do.

Charlie 11-8-2006 04:07 PM
You said you hung around Degraw and Hoyt knew Bill Monks
Did you know anyone from Larry's cellar

Bill Sweeney 11-9-2006 09:16 AM
Thanks Fred. That is not the church that I am looking for. Someone on the site mentioned a Saint Charles Church on President Street. I do know that there had been a church there, but can't find any record of its existance. I guess that I will have to try Saint Pauls. Best wishes.

Tommy B. 11-9-2006 12:22 PM
Hello Bill, I did mention St Charle's on President St ,then I also mentioned St.Mary's Star of the Sea & Visitation, Once again, good luck!

Bill Sweeney 11-9-2006 06:25 PM
The 1st generation of the family in this country were married in Saint Paul's, and buried from Saint Paul's, and the oldest child was Baptized in Saint Paul's I thought that all the children would have been Baptized in Saint Paul's. There is no record of them either there or Saint Pater's. I know that they were not in Saint Mary's parish as they lived at 544 Hicks Street. Thanks, and best wishes.

Anyone remember the Baldasere family that owned a little candy store on Court between Kane and Baltic? The store was down a few steps and across the street from the College Bakery.

Yes I remember that candy store very well. They had the best candy. That was in the 60's. I think it was called Mario's Candy Store. I lived at 173 Baltic between Clinton and Henry St. across from PS29's school yard.
I had family that owned 201 Baltic St.
