Any old friends out there? This entry was recorded on Sunday, 16 October I started out going to Salerno's Italian restaurant when I was a kid about 9 years old. My parents brought me there for some great Italian food and I remember the green wine bottles with straw that decorated the restaurant. Salerno's was known for their clams, and made great pizza! I am a jazz musician and worked at the Triangle Hoffbrau restaurant which was a landmark restaurant until recently when the restaurant closed and was converted into a medical center at the end of the 20th Century I played the piano and worked there many times with Lou Messana on guitar, the late Tom Sfraga on bass and Al Variale on drums.
We had many great musicians drop by to sit in. The Triangle Hoffbrau was owned by the four brothers. We would have jam sessions starting at midnight going to sometimes 3: The wooden dance floor was a real attraction for hoofers dancers and they always had great food and were friendly people.
After I got off work I drop in at Salerno's or Aldo's for some pizza. The old movie house became a bingo joint in the daytime and it provided some definition to the neighborhood. Jamaica Avenue and th Street was the place you could go to relax, have some great food, and then walk it off in the park.
Forest Park is north of the triangle as it was called. You could walk along the tracks of the Long Island Railroad go thru the woods and feel like you were in the country! Richmond hill was a beautiful, friendly, area to enjoy life.
This entry was recorded on Thursday, 13 October Take a stroll down jamaica Ave The Stand and pizza place next door; Hofbrau; Candy store on Street Schmit's; Manor Sports bought my 1st pair of Cons Converse sneakers there 8. I'd trade shopping here with all the modern malls in a heartbeat. Have many great memories of Al's and Winther's across the street.
Marguerite - Of Baldwin. The stores I recall around th and Jamaica Ave. To Teresa of Erie CO: I lived on the same block as you. Marie's was originaly Fitzpatrick's which was next to Wise Drugs. Also, Doctrows was a women's store like Springers. Al's used to be on the south side of Jamaica then he moved to the north side until he sold to another Al. First Al was a very sweet man. We would go in their as kids to shop for Christmas or Birthday presents; and he would let us search in there for what felt like hours and then he help us make decision on a gift.
Sweet memories, I have so many of them. This entry was recorded on Wednesday, 12 October We lived in a few different location around Atlantic Avenue and th Street until our family purchased their home on th Street between Jamaica and 86th Avenues Burkes arts and crafts at Smokey Park, ice skating etc.

This entry was recorded on Monday, 10 October I have lived in the area now known as South Richmond Hill my entire life. Although new developements are typically good for a community, it breaks my heart to see some of our old Victorian houses being torn down.
I love that recently constructed six condo complexes are making it possible for families to come in and enjoy our lovely community.
But, where is the character?? I love living in a place that has it's own bingo hall and traditional ice cream shop. Thank you for trying to preserve all of the things that make this place, where I grew up, special. This entry was recorded on Sunday, 9 October Born in RH , lived there until , first on corner of St. Went to HCJ graduating Jan. Father's family moved from Manhattan to RH about the start of the 20th century on 89Ave.
My father and uncle played baseball for RHHS. I have a picture of the RHHS team in which they both appear. My mother's family moved from Manhattan to RH around and lived on St across from the corner of 89Ave.
I have a group picture taken in front of our house of a block party on the 4th of July probably of or Notes on the picture identify two of the younger children as my uncles. There are about 80 people in the picture, mainly children. There are still some of my father's family still living in RH. An aunt and cousins lived in the one house on St. Having read all of the Guest Book entries, it seems that only a few Hillites of my era have reported in. Although many of the street games that we "depression babies" played are mentioned,some of the things we did were probably different.
The football we used in the street was ordinarily made from rolled up newspapers tied with string or rubber bands. We didn't have baskets or basketballs in the street. We used tennis or rubber balls and the "one way" sign was the basket.
Sewer covers were the goals for roller hockey. We made up all kinds of stick ball and box ball games. Necessity really was the mother of invention. The cement playground at RHHS was open and used from daylight to dark during the summer. At other times we would sometimes climb the fence on the St. When it was getting dark we congregated on somebody's stoop, or the milk ice box in front of Hoffman's grocery on 90Ave and St.
There was no vandalism even though Sam was not thrilled. Some random thought about persons and places I haven't seen mentioned in the Guest Book: Joan of Arc and St. I also remember the flag with the red ball on the white background which was flown when there was ice skating on the flooded basketball court at Jackson Park, at least until Pearl Harbor and the huge fire at the railroad yard on Leffert's Blvd.
A final thought, at least for now. Dickie replied,"Because it feels so good when we come down. This entry was recorded on Saturday, 8 October I grew up on th street between 95th and st avenue. My friend from the nieghborhood Marty Peshler, who I'm visiting this weekend on the Island, told me about this site. Great memories growing up. The bagel bakery at th and st ave, the movie theateres, playing ball for St Benny's, Mickey's bar, and too many more to tell. Moved to Kentucky in to go to college, fell in love with a "Kentucky Woman" and never moved back.
I have always told my daughters how great it was growing up in richmond hill and how I wish they could have experienced the same life. It was much safer and carefree. I would walk to St. I haven't seen them in 30 years. I wonder if they will ever read this. This entry was recorded on Friday, 7 October Saturday along Jamaica Avenue: This entry was recorded on Friday, 30 September I grew up on street between 95th and st ave.
There was no other place like it. I would walk home for St. All street games that kids today would laugh at. Block parties were the Summers highlight! I just remember getting up early that day getting all excited to see everyone move their car off the blocks. On regular days I remember rushing to finish dinner, just so I can go outside where me and my friends would sit on the porch and wait for the dueling ice-cream trucks to come around. The adults preffered Mr. Softy but me and my friends would wait around for Tony's Ice Cream truck.
But once I hit my High School years in the late 80's the neighborhood started it's change. It seemed like all the people that made up my street sold thier home. The last Block Party that I remember happening was in I left for college in and my parents sold their home in I recently visited my old home.
To make a long story short I can sum up what my feelings in one short example. I know my childhood was the last days of how it used to be, similar to those who experienced it in the early 's. It's a shame the kids that live there now have no idea.

I have fond memories of rh - after my husband of 40 yrs. Benedict Joseph Church -- we ate many dinners at Angelo's and I will never forget when my husband brought me home from the hospital after having our first baby girl which will be 39 years ago he ordered a nice dinner for me from Angelo's -- only a block away I think am glad to hear that the son is running it and hoping he keeps the website going and the heritage.
I am from two sets of Italian grandparents who came over from Italy and went through Eillis Island. My Dad just past away in April - and hard to take - my Mom is 9l and is having a hard time - she is also in need of home care - and my brother lives down there still in Ozone Park - and he oversees her care through the three caregivers - while he works - I am the long distance caregiver and make the calls and inquiries - It is very hard for me - as I am now physically challenged - at the time - we did nto know and many still do not know - I loved walking my daughters and dressing them and made friends along the way - is the German deli still there on Liberty Ave.
I do miss the cultural events of New York but, when raising our children, we became very active in the community - and both daughters are well know throughout the community and went through the whole school system here and graduated college here the same year -- and that is where I worked for over 24 years. Hope to hear more history about rh.

Thanks for the memories. It was a great time that I will always remember. That's a record for California!! Remember Joe the Icecream man in Richmond Hill. I heard he is still selling ice cream.

My home email address should be at the bottom of this note if you want to contact me directly. Marty P- Glad to hear you are well and living on Long Island.
We had some great times at SBJL. My wife and I moved from Maryland in to Hilton Head. She was a member of the wealthy and powerful House of Medici. Following the assassination of her husband in , which occurred the day after her coronation , she acted as regent for her son, King Louis XIII of France , until , when he came of age.
Marie was not a male-line descendant of Lorenzo the Magnificent but from Lorenzo the Elder , a branch of the Medici family sometimes referred to as the 'cadet' branch. She did descend from Lorenzo in the female-line however, through his daughter Lucrezia de' Medici.
Marie was one of seven children, but only she and her sister Eleonora survived to adulthood. A portrait of Marie as a young girl shows her with regular features and a high forehead. Her wavy hair was light brown in colour, and she had honey-brown eyes and fair skin. The painter was from the school of Santi di Tito.
The wedding ceremony was held in Florence, and was celebrated by four thousand guests with lavish entertainment, including examples of the newly invented musical genre of opera , such as Jacopo Peri 's Euridice. Henry did not attend the ceremony, and the two were therefore married by proxy. Marie brought as part of her dowry , crowns.
Her husband was almost 47 at the marriage and had a long succession of mistresses. Dynastic considerations required him to take a second wife, his first spouse Margaret of Valois never having produced children by Henry or by her lovers. The marriage was successful in producing children, but it was not a happy one. The queen feuded with Henry's mistresses in language that shocked French courtiers.
Catherine referred to Maria as "the fat banker's daughter"; Henry used Maria for breeding purposes exactly as Henry II had treated Catherine de' Medici. She, in turn, showed great sympathy and support to her husband's banished ex-wife Marguerite de Valois , prompting Henry to allow her back into the realm. Marie was crowned Queen of France on 13 May , a day before her husband's death.
Hours after Henry's assassination, she was confirmed as regent by the Parliament of Paris. She immediately banished his mistress, Catherine Henriette de Balzac, from the court.
During her husband's lifetime Marie showed little sign of political acumen, and her abilities scarcely improved after she assumed the regency. Extremely stubborn and of limited intellect, she was heavily influenced by her maid Leonora "Galigai" Dori. Dori conspired with her unscrupulous Italian husband, Concino Concini , who was created Marquis d'Ancre and a Marshal of France , even though he had never fought a battle. Half-Habsburg herself, Marie abandoned the traditional anti-Habsburg French foreign policy.
Under the regent's lax and capricious rule, the princes of the blood and the great nobles of the kingdom revolted. The queen, too weak to assert her authority, consented to buy them off on 15 May The opposition to the regency was led by Henri de Bourbon , Duke of Enghien , who pressured Marie into convoking the Estates General in and In Marie's rule was strengthened by the addition to her councils of Armand Jean du Plessis later Cardinal Richelieu , who had come to prominence at the meetings of the Estates General.
However, her son Louis XIII , already several years into his legal majority, asserted his authority the next year. Through the mediation of Richelieu the king was reconciled with his mother, who was allowed to hold a small court at Angers. She resumed her place in the royal council in The portrait by Rubens was painted at this time. When Marie rebuilt the Luxembourg Palace in Paris, she added this extravagantly flattering cycle of her paintings by Rubens as part of the luxurious decoration.
This collection was called the Marie de' Medici Cycle. After the death of his favourite, the duke of Luynes , Louis turned increasingly for guidance to Richelieu. Her visit to Amsterdam was considered a diplomatic triumph by the Dutch, as it lent official recognition to the newly formed Dutch Republic ; accordingly she was given an elaborate ceremonial royal entry , of the sort the Republic avoided for its own rulers.
Spectacular displays by Claes Corneliszoon Moeyaert and water pageants took place in the city's harbour in celebration of her visit. There was a procession led by two mounted trumpeters, and a large temporary structure was erected on an artificial island in the Amstel River especially for the festival. The structure was designed to display a series of dramatic tableaux in tribute to her once she set foot on the floating island and entered its pavilion. Afterwards she was offered an Indonesian rice table by the burgomaster Albert Burgh.
He also sold her a famous rosary , captured in Brazil. Marie subsequently travelled to Cologne , where she died in , scheming against Richelieu to the end. She was buried in the Basilica of St Denis in northern Paris. The site was purchased in and construction began in , to designs of Salomon de Brosse. Her court painter was Peter Paul Rubens. It was well known that Henry of Navarre her husband was not wealthy.
She brought her own fortune from Florence to finance various construction projects in France. But more importantly, she contributed to the financing of several expeditions including Samuel de Champlain 's to North America, which saw France lay claim to Canada.
She was born and raised in Italy and the French never really accepted her; hence, the negative reviews. The French were still not pleased with his choosing an Italian wife. Marie de' Medici, all of whose actions were prejudicial to France, has escaped the shame which ought to cover her name. Marie's conduct was such that she forced her son to banish her from France, where she was encouraging her other son, Gaston.
The French were in need of money, yet were quick to bite the hand of the giver. It is a fact that she brought her own wealth to France. San Diego, Gaslamp Bus Charter. San Francisco Bus Charter.
