Does anyone remember a Polish bartender known as Richard?
« on: April 08, 2017, 02:27:59 AM »
I am looking for a Polish man who was bartending in 1969 and was known as Richard. He was of Jewish descent although I don't know if he considered himself Jewish.

He was probably young. My guess is 18-30.

I suppose i should mention that this man i am looking for is my biological father. Please, please ask other JH friends who lived there at that time if they remember him.  I've read tbat JH was a very Irish neighborhood at that time? Maybe people would remember a Polish/Jewish bartender..?

You could also try Facebook groups for people who grew up in this area like this one https://www.facebook.com/groups/jacksonheightsny/

I'm not a member of the groups since I didn't grow up here, but they might see more activity than this forum.

@amwilliamson I don't know anyone who's been in JH that long, personally, but just wanted to wish you good luck in your search.

Thanks for the suggestion, Shelby2!   :)  I looked at the FB group and requested to join.  I am also going to try to get in touch with someone at the Jewish Center.

Do you know what bar? That would be helpful. I grew up in JH and left in 1971, but came back often
