    Stories from the old neighborhood, as you take a trip down memory lane visit our beer gardens, Silvercup and Kaufman Studios, Woolworth’s, Lowe’s theater, Grandma’s apartment and Astoria Park and Pool. Play stickball, Jacks, Johnny Ride a Pony, drink egg creams, dance to Rock and Roll music, and watch early TV programs as we dispute the never ending, “best center fielder, Mantle, Mays, or Schneider”?
    Growing up is a perfect gift for holidays, Christmas stocking stuffer, one of the Hanukah gifts, good reading after Thanksgiving dinner, or perhaps a little gift to impress the goomah(girlfriend)? Now is the time to purchase a dozen or more copies, an Egyptian friend is putting a copy in his boat to read as he travels to the afterlife.
    Join the Germans, Irish, Italians, Jews, and Greeks of Astoria as we learn their traditions, eat their food, hyperlinking directly to learn more about our Astoria ancestors. Feel free to correct spelling and grammar, add your own family stories, or sit back, read, and enjoy the stories.
