Bill/Walt: Kiddie land disappeared within the last 5 years. Can't seem to recall what is on the site today. Next time I visit my parents I will check it out. Do you guys remember a trampoline place next to the kiddieland in the 1960's?? What was the name??

Does anyone remember the candy store Beezy's?It was at the foor of the old wooden bridge, across the street from the park on 165th Avenue and 95th Street. We'd collect soda bottles at the park, redeem them at Beezy's and buy candy. I also remember buying cigarettes for my mother and father there for I think 25 cents a pack. Does that sound right?

I remember Beezys by the bridge. In fact my boyfriend at the time bought me my first soda at that place. That was back in 1949, I think.

My first job was at what we called "Gabe's", aka Kiddyland. Gabe DeTillio was his name I think. I made $1.65 an hr. I thought I was rich! I've been back there a few times in the last few years and the thing that strikes me most is how incredibly SMALL Howard Beach is! I lived in an apartment over Lynn's Marina from Aug 1970 until 1978. Check out the pictures on this site of the old wooden bridge burning. Pics are from my living room window.

I have lived in old Howard Beach all my life.I also remember the minature golf that used to be on Crossbay. There was no Rockwood Park for a good part of my growing up.There used to be a gas station where Ragtime is now,also. Not too far from OLG where I went there was Cherry forest which is now Cohancy St.

Ragtime used to be Texaco-owned by the Morash family.I grew up across the street from them in Old HB. Does anyone remember that Waldbaum's was down there? And Honda and Datsun across from "the rides"? The teen club it became and the aquarium? And the hand controlled train ride's in back of Gabe's and his captain hat on? How 'bout the fries and ices? How HB has changed
