Does anyone remember when the gas station on the corner of 165th St. and Crossbay Blvd. was a golf course? Does anyone remember China Wall which is now Danny's. How about House of Wong near Sugar Bun Bakery. How about Meats and Treats, King George and Sans Egal Coiffures, Howard Park General Hospital?

I remember that and more... How about Glicks Kosher Deli? and Waldbaums on the west side of the Blvd? Of course the Big Bow Wow and Pizza City...Sunoco gas station where Blockbuster video store is today. The original site of Home Federal Savings Bank next to the Sunoco Gas station. And how about the fabulous Vicki Lane's??? Write back please

Faye: The library was between Shore Parkway (Belt Exit) and 156th Avenue next to Meats and Treats. Then it move to the weeded lot behind Chase Manhattan Bank on 92nd St. and 156th Avenue. Meats and Treats closed and the space was the new home for Home Federal Savings Bank. The hill behind the bank was always great for bike riding at top speed!

Gerry, Sorry. Didn't realize that was the Nicks Pizza that they were talking about.. Anyway, I am sure anyone that took the train or the green bus lines will remember Nick and Lou's anyway.. They did have good pizza.. And always some good conversation.. Sorry bout the mistake.

Faye: Lived in rockwood Park ("New Howard Beach) on 156th Avenue. Remember when the Q-41 didn't come. you either took the Q-11 to Pitkin Ave and hoofed it come or you took a cab from Liberty Ave. Green Bus Lines still provides the same quality bus service today.

Bill: The bakery off of 158th Ave. was called Duval's. And you are right...they had great hot dogs there. I remember Joes Candy Store too! Who was the Smith Family?.. Sugar Bun Bakery was and still is the best bakery in Queens. Loved their chocolate danishes. There was a Candy store next to them but when they closed, the Sugar Bun expanded into their space. Remember the Dry Cleaners on the other side of the Bakery, and next to the cleaners was a liquor store. Besides the Sugar Bun, I think the oldest storefront that remains is the Hardware store between 158th and 159th Ave. and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Faye: I remember very well the cab services if the Green Bus did not come. The Hayes Mill car service dispatched from Old Howard Beach with the old checker cabs with the flip up seats in the spacious back. Hayes Mill later became Howard car service. The Green Bus lines have always been a favorite "whipping boy" of H.B. residents, lol. Do you remember the Good Humor trucks and Bungalow Bar (tastes like tar) trucks wandering the neighborhood in the summer???

Down in Fla you don't see icecream trucks like Good Humor or Bungalow Bar. Once in a blue moon you will see a Mister Softee. They don't allow them in complexes.
