I have lived in all 5 boroughs of NYC, Boston, Tampa, Bergen County and the Pocono Mountains. No one knows what a Wedge is, but we sure do if we are from NR. Makes me long for the back room of Pat's with a Roast Beef Wedge and a 16oz.  (Feb 5, 2014 | post #3300)

Here's few more oldies, but goodies.

The old City Hall was on Main St. where what is now called Memorial Highway...formerly Mechanic Street as Frankie said. It moved from there to North Avenue in what was the original Albert Leonard Junior High School around 1961. http://www.newroch elletalk.com/conte nt/new-rochelle-an d-after-city-hall- 1907 I believe the original cupola from the top of the old city hall now sits atop the NR Rowing Club building at Hudson Park off the "New Beach". (At least it was there the last time I saw it a number of years ago.) It sat in ruins in the Hudson Park parking lot for years before they decided to place it atop the Rowing Club building  (Aug 4, 2013 | post #3238)

Remember those big old BS bookbags you could buy at Jack's Army and Navy in red and white? Nothing like them anymore. Now the kids use knapsacks and call them bookbags...we called them knapsacks. Walk to and from school???? Now is the day of the school bus and "parent pickup". I walked a mile to and from BS every day from Kindergarten to Senior year, and I was allowed to walk to and from by myself starting in the 2nd grade. I would be afraid to let my 2nd grader walk by him/herself today with all the craziness out there. Oh, what a different time it was indeed  (Jan 24, 2013 | post #3135)

Yup...I got the news too last night about BS-SG HS. Makes me think even more about what New Rochelle Guy said about "character ". Maple and Shea will never be the same, nor will New Rochelle. As a grad of BSHS in '74, I am very disappointed and feel empty about the whole thing. Some people may say all that has happened to NR over the past few decades is progress and we just want to live in the past. I don't want to live in the past although I have fond memories, but what has happened to NR over the past few decades is not progress; it's decay...plain and simple  (Jan 23, 2013 | post #3130)

You are right, Coach..this is a great site, but it used to be much more active with several posts per day. The last 6 months or so, the posts have really waned. While I now live in PA, I still love "talking NR". You help keep this NR thread going! Happy New Year, Coach. BS '74 grad.  (Jan 16, 2013 | post #3124)

I was saddened to hear of the death of Dr.Falvey. He and his family will be in my prayers over these next few days. How could you grow up in NR and not know the Falveys? They were a "tribe" with all those kids. I believe the younger ones went to Iona. I went to BSGS and BSHS with Kevin. We graduated from BSHS in 1974. While we were not "best buddies", we were always friends with each other. We even ran against each other for the Student Council position of President at BSHS in 1973. I remember so vividly when we were both Seniors and in West Park, NY on a Christian Brothers Leadership Conference when Kevin received news that his oldest brother Richie had been killed in a an accident...I believe it was on Pelham Road if I remember correctly. I remember feeling so bad for someone I considered a friend. I haven't had contact with Kevin in years, but I'm sure, being from the Falvey Clan, he is still a wonderful person to know. Not only was his father a pillar, but his mother was a wonderful woman, too. My prayers are with her. Let's keep Dr. Falvey and the whole Falvey family in our prayers during this time.  (Nov 9, 2012 | post #3116)

I remember when I moved out of the New Rochelle area and tried to order a "wedge" at a deli. They didn't know what I was talking about. They used names like hero, sub, hoagie...but, not wedge. Anyone remember eating lunch in the back storage room at the deli across from Jack's Army and Navy? I think it was called Pat's. We'd leave BS, get a wedge and a 16oz and go sit on a case of soda. Sometimes we'd get yelled at for getting too loud. How a bout a buttered wedge for 25 cents when you didn't have the money?  (Aug 23, 2012 | post #3094)
