That was fantastic (response
to You might be from Newark, NJ if...). Does anyone have anymore.
I think the real name was "Louie Tingaling's" and the
grease was guaranteed to make you live a long time - I'm pushing
73! The sausage brought tears to your eyes - but really good on
a cold night. Sneaking into the Empire Burlesque was a treat and
skipping school to see the big bands at the Adams Theater was the
ultimate. I lived across from Branch Brook Park - 281 Lake Street
- and my 2nd Cousin, Joe Halpin, was the cop that rode the three
wheel motorcycle. I always asked him for a ride and he never could
give me one. He lost a toe - amputated from frost bite -- when he
saved a person that was drowning in the Branch Brook Lake. Skated
there all of the time and thought it was our own private park -
always felt sorry for the poor kids that didn't live near there
because they didn't have one. Great memories of a great city.
