Jimmy Hoffa Posted January 31, 2006 Report Share Posted January 31, 2006 Here are just a few of the places I have remembered and have missed growing up in Harrison/ East Newark. Alice's Sub Shop, up on 4th street, near Sherman Ave. Danny's Pizzeria near the little League (Danny and Sal were great guys!) Cerbones, down the other end of Harrison Ave, near 280. Honey's Luncheonette on 4th Street, near Enzo's deli. Across the Street from there, was the Milk Machine, and Max Lasky the Dentist. Underground Frank's candy store on 3rd street, towards OLC School. ( You walked down 3 stairs into the store, wich was in the basement of his home. Argyle, and Thistle Fish and Chips on Kearny Ave, before Bergen. Cameron's Scottish Butcher on Kearny Ave, before Wilson Ave. Thompson's fish and chips, owned by the Ostrom Family. The Fish and Chips place on Central Ave, next to old PJ's Tavern. Dominick's Ice Cream Store and newspaper store on Central Ave in East Newark. Molly's Liquor store on Central ave. Owned by brother and sister Molly and Tony. Rosie's Italian Hot Dog Store on Central and John Street. The Candy store on the Corner of 5th and Cross Street, by Lincoln School. Cappucino's Hardware store. ( I would think it was great, to go to the hardware store with no money, and get stuff for my grandfather, he had a account with them!) The CETA office was upstairs for a while. The Harrison Recreation Center - On Harrison and 6th Street. Hinze Deli Max's Diner The Blue Castle- Down by Schuyler Ave Vigor Soda, on Sanford Ave Nick's Pizzeria, next to Cerbone's All of these places I have just mentioned, and I am missing many many more. The common denominator that they all had was, they were family oriented, they cared about the kids and the people. I sense no more community. I stress community. True, times have changed, people pass away, move away. Its just sad that you walk through a town you grew up in, and the hardest part is, it looks as if people are just walking with their heads down, on their way to wherever it is they are going. I miss the days when you went over to a friends house, knocked once, and you walked in. Or if you were walking down the street, people said hello from across the street. Now? Its different, it just seems like the "community" aspect of the town is gone down the tubes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
