I agree. I worked there when I was a kid flipping burgers and working the grease pit. A great place.

Just think, it was replaced with another CVS. Just what we didn't need.

What a great place to get a late night meal. Plus brought my kids there when they were little, bopping up and down in the ugly red booths. But there was something about the place.........a 60's 70's thing that lasted into the 80's and.............90's?

Sometimes progress is sad.......I won't go to that CVS........and I don't have to go far to find another one

What about the Bright Spot across from what was then Bobers Bakery.

Bright Spot special...Burger, fries, coleslaw and a fountain made cherry coke in the funnel shaped cup with the metal base...$.35 back in the fifties.

Warm summer nights, walking up the Ave to the Lincoln and back, stopping at the Bright Spot on the way home. Memories.......

Next time your at the bakery take a walk across the street and look at the back retaining wall where the Bright Spot used to be.

The Bright Spot can still be seen painted on the wall.

Ray, the counter man at the Bright Spot and Roy at Eagans.

Standing in line for blocks along Kearny Ave. waiting to see Santa on the Town Hall steps.

Going in the side door at Bobers at 9pm when the light went on for warm rolls and the best jelly donuts around.

Spending all day at the playground program in the summer.

The Kearny Pool.

Damn mosquitoes! Hey, it's a memory.

The smell of burning garbage from the Kearny meadows--I don't miss that.

The rag man with his horse and wagon.

Stick ball at Bell Playground.

Walking to Gunnal Oval by way of the pathway next to Dupont's and the railroad tracks. See the remnants of the incinerator which seem to be there for ever and never was used. Then the Kearny Space Building that was never finished.

The steam engines going through the Arlington Station.

The 36 Bus, the 41 bus, the 102 bus, the 38 and the 39 buses.

The Regent Theater and the Hudson Theater on Kearny Avenue.

Going "downtown" to go shopping at Bam's (Bambergers), Orbachs, Kresge's and Hanes Department Stores. Going to the movies in Newark. Grant's Lunch on Market Street.

Going to the PAL on Devon Street to shoot some pool.

The "Good Old Days" for sure.

Remember...

The Whip and other rides for 10 cents on the back of a flat bed truck.

The fruit and vegetable guy . He had one arm, I believe from the Korean War.

The night the Regent burned down.

The smell from the slaughter house on Harrison Ave. Ugh!

Mayor Healey and his family making their grand entrance for the fireworks at the high school field.

The mosquito spray truck. How did we ever survive that!!.

Double feature Saturday matinees at the Lincoln.
