I was born in Newark and lived on Peshine
Avenue. I went to Bergen St. school, Badger Ave. - Peshine Av. school;
went to Weequahic, moved to Calif. before graduation ('57). On Peshine
Avenue I went down to the cellar to shovel coal, it was scary. Ships
candy store was on the corner. Anyone know the McGouphs (sp?) of
Peshine Avenue? Ann-Marie and John, mom Aurella? and the Adams family
who lived across the street from me, lots of kids. I think Barbara
Sledding down the "hill" on the corner near the jailhouse.
Going to the jailhouse at Christmas for a gift toy from Santa. (Alan
Barnett, my mom's friend's son.) I remember Clinton Avenue and the
movie theater, Saturday matinees w/ lots of cartoons and the continuing
mystery. The 5 &10, fun to walk through, the Jewish orphanage,
and Tertzis ice cream parlor on Clinton St. (my mom would meet us
at Bergen St. school and take us there. What a treat! Downtown,
I remember Bambergers, and S. Klein on the Square. Chock-full o
nuts where I waited for the bus to go home to Badger Ave. I worked
at Lerner's part time in high school. The Christmas store windows,
animated. on the bus I would look out the window and see a sign
on a window "mail me monday" what did it mean??
Anyone remember Stash's Tavern on Hawthorne?
