Marty Lalli's demo records were in several store juke boxes. 35 Flavors, Pizza Pete's,(across from Jerrys),Danny's of course, & a few others that I can't remember. He was 13 when he made that record.

Why is the Mayor so determined to tear down the Armory.
They turned Roosevelt School into Condo's, They turned Albert Leanard School into City Hall and they turned Bloomingdales into Condo's. BUT they want to tear down the ARMORY. I don't get it.
If you realy want to know...you will have to do some research...the library historian "may" be able to help! The old A.L/J.H.S., was scheduled for demolition,as was, the former Lincoln Elementry on Lincoln Ave.! Lincoln school was demolished 1960, and became "a city park" with ever changing names and uses!!! A.L./ J.H.S., was scheduled for demolition, the following year. It too, was to become, another "city" park. It was "spared" the fate of Lincoln School, the last minute of the last day of it's existance. Well worth looking into.

I know that place from the 1950's. I think it was owned by (Bronx, N.Y.C.) I think it was closed late 1950's, as it was a area of (crimes) drugs and perversions of selected individuals that frequented the area. The Bronx owners, ffilled the parking area, with bowling ball (size) bolders, to keep the visitors and criminals out (early 1960's) It may have stopped, some of the "lover's lane" aspects, but not the other purposes.

The Kelly from the 5th Ave. projects that I knew was Billy Kelly..
probably graduated NRHS around 1961.... got married shortly thereafter and lived in those garden apartments right across from Harbor House. I believe that he still lives in the Westchester area
( not necessarily New Rochelle). I did see him about 10-15 years ago at a wedding. Don't know that this helps.

OK, I'll bite. What do the fates of these two schools over 50 years ago have to do with the armory?

Not the same place. You could still enter this place well into the 70's, and there were no bowling ball size boulders that I ever saw. The place I am talking about was very close to the Pelham border.

On the subject of the tragic early death of Jeff Sundermeyer, I was talking to an old buddy and he seemed to have a clear recollection that Jeff was in the back seat of the car ( before the seat belt era) and when the crash occurred.. Jeff was knocked forward and then backward and his neck was broken. The others somehow survived the crash. He also recalled that it did take place in New Rochelle and quite possibly on the Shore Road.

I went to Blessed Sacrament High School and was a year younger than your Uncle Jeff. I remember him as a very dedicated football player.. although he wasn't a very big guy.. he more than held his own. I recall that your Dad transferred into Blessed Sacrament and joined Jeff on the 1958 football team and that team had a great season.. including a tie against New Rochelle High.. a tremendous achievement for a small school like BSHS. The Blessed Sacrament senior class of 1959 had a 50th reunion last year and there is a website that you can google up by trying "Blessed Sacrament High School Class of 1959".. and I think you'll locate it. Included is the senior yearbook photo of your Uncle Jeff. Being a year younger than your Dad and Uncle.. I can't say that I was anything like a close friend.. but I do remember them both. There are classmates of theirs on that "59" website who would have been schoolmates of theirs for 12 years and snd some of them would surely have more perceptions and recollections

In 1959+ the Sundermeyer family lived at 22 Keogh Lane in NR... I lived at 24 Keogh. I remember them all. I was 2 years younger than Billy. I remember playing touch football with them behind the apt. I remember that they had big parties on the weekends and the next day the cellar was loaded with the empty beer cases. The whole family was very friendly and down to earth. Billy was more outgoing than Jeff and very much the big brother. When I went off to college my dad sold my car to Billy..........it was a blue '55 Chrysler New Yorker. Sorry to hear about Jimmy ..... he was just a kid when I knew them. I remember talking to Jeff after the '59 NRHS/BS game about one particular reverse he ran right into Gene MacDonald playing defensive end (Gene later was a high school all american as a tail back on the NRHS '61 team)....it was a picture tackle, Jeff bounced up and patted MacDonald on the head. What did you say I asked him, he said "nice play".....that was Jeff all business when it came to sports. Please say high to Billy for me.

You don't have to tear down these well constructed buildings. The Armory is built like a fortress and can be saved

Oh, I agree with you, Barney, but I am not so sure that is what Jim Dandy was trying to get to. The armory is a grand old building that only adds to the history and beauty of NR. It could be used (converted) for so many purposes.

Weren't they talking about building more condos where City Yard is/was? The armory is right next door.

Yes, and their plan is to tear down the Armory. The Veterans want to save it and find a way to restore it.

It is a crying shame if they rip that historic building down for a few more waterfront condos.

There was also one across from my grandmother's deli at 425 Main Street where the Mall is now. It was next to the candy store, a few doors up from the Franklin Laundry. I remember my brothers used to call it Doc's, but I am not sure if that was the name. Carol would know since she lived next door.
Docs was on FRANKLIN AVE--2 or 3 doors down from Gundelach's. The candy store was next to the barber shop & franlin laundry. WOW ! What a memory. Do you remember Gary Gray?
