I was amused watching "Jeanette " an her boy friend rusty  'I'm looking in the mirror" paw each other in front of fields dept store. my girl friend  thought it was funny since rusty was dating her sister also.then we got older some went to collage some hit the bottles an drugs,fights at the golden note were common, bar bullies like buster, rusty, billy,sandy an the bad boy bunch from the splendon social club were always involed. I remember bert lownstein ,blattstein an the fuchs bros along with crazy mary,donny the brat an bobby the beatnik,after I finished college I went back to the heights an tried to hook up with some old friends  but couldn't find any   anyone out there from those tmes?????

I'm from those times and I have many wonderful memories. You don't have all your facts straight though. It was never the 70s. All the people you mention were from the 50s and  ery early 60s. Who are you? What is your first name

Who the hell is "Augie". I know all the people your talking about through all the generations. But unless your using a fictitious name you must have been on the outside looking in. What about the good things the Splendon's did such as dancing in the back of the note cleaning up the neighborhood where the club was. Don't even mention Bert Lowenstein in the same breath with us. He was a PS 69 resident who could throw a descent bowling ball. I knew him and liked him , but he was not one of us. I still don't know who you are and don't care but the guy's you spoke the worst of were and in some cases the best of my friends. I believe you mentioned my name. If you had any courage you would mention your name in a private email so I know who I'm jousting with.

Do any of you remember a bartender names Billy Brennan who worked many bars in JH in the mid 1950's to mid 1950's

I knew Billy Brennan very well if you are referring to the BB that lived in a great Irish family located on the north side of Northern Bvd in the low eighties or high seventies. I'd been to his hours once or twice but can't remember the street. I was friends with him though our high school years and totally lost track after I went into the service in '52. I heard something vague about him moving to Texas but have never confirmed that. If you have any up on him since 1952, I'd love to hear about it. I'm going on 86 so Billy has to be around that age, if he'd still living. Contact me on my email address: greatpoobah@aol.com  Be sure to put Billy Brennan in the subject box. My Name is Howard Giordano
