I remember Russell St well. Whatever happened to Jane Schoepp, Bernice Stanley, etc. I graduated Adams in '72 and lived on 102nd st. Also Eileen Malloy, any of these names familiar? My father used to go to the Yacht Club at the end of Russell St. I visited last year after being gone for 25 years! It was fun to see all the old places. We used to go crabbing and catch killies in the creek. I just turned 49 and to think i was 5 when I moved to Howard Beach!!

In some ways, Russell St hasn't changed, but less open space. Does anyone remember watching the fireworks on Wed nights, sitting on the log at the end of the street by the Boat club. The fireworks were going off in the Rockaways, were tiny from Russell St, but still exciting. Remember the high tides, houses falling into the creek? The great fire on Rat Island every 4th of July?

Hello Eileen - I used to babysit you when you were very little. My mom and Matt still live on Russell St, but it seems so crowded now. Two boat-clubs, lots of cars parked everywhere. Do you remember Mrs. Huss, Walter Schwartz, the Bresslers, "the Russell St. Gang"? Those remarkable high tides that left the homes looking like islands?
