Thank you for visiting the Richmond Hill Historical Society website.

We would appreciate it if you would Add to this GuestBook we are keeping!

In the late fifties, my parents had the C&F Bar and Grill (formerly the Silver Dollar) right where you lived. Did you know the Mannings? Danny and I hung together.

Moved to LI in 1978, went to PS90 until 5th grade.

who remembers al's stereo and hello marty peschler!

Especially to those Ragamuffins of Richmond Hill!

Used to live on 86th avenue between 102 and 104 streets. I didn't stick around as long as I expected on my visit. Its a shame that so much has changed forever from what Richmond Hill was that I remember. Absolutely saddened for the disregard to the history of Richmond Hill.

If their is anyone who worked there or knows someone who did, or what finally happened to the store, please post it or contact me. Thanks.

This is listed on my birth certificate as the place where I was born. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I lived at 109-16 125 Street and was wondering exactly where you lived. We had seven kids in our family.

From: Memphis, TN

My family lived in Richmond Hill during the 1950s and 1960s. We relocated to California when I was a small boy.

I have great memories of Jahn's Ice Cream Parlor, Forest Park, and the "El" train.

late 1960s i think.

If anyone could provide any information regarding this facility, I would be very grateful. Does anyone know the address or what happened to the sanatorium. It seems to have vanished.

My parents and I were living with relatives, Harry MacGregor. We lived on a few other streets which I am trying where they were. In 1950 I attended K at a P.S. , but not sure which one and in 1953 I was attending P.S. 53.

I have always had good memories of being there, especially shopping on Liberty Ave. with my grandmother and an Aunt.

I grew up on 109th Avenue but 125th Street was the place to be. Tons of kids, classmates and friends with such wonderful memories, one of which is still my best friend today.

Remember Uncle Jacks, Kresges 5 & 10, and Al Diamonds record shop. What about Tom McCann and Miles shoe store!

I think I was in Beaver patrol(?). Went to sanita hills about 4 summers. The best of times. Around 1958-1962(?). Mr. Costigan, Bill Welcht, the guy who took the dues, Al. Remember the game. steal the bacon. Hope all is well. DaveO

I think you and I were in scouts about the same time. Troop 273. I was in Stag Patrol with Richard Trainor.

Timing wise, I went to the last 2 summer camps at Pouch and then it was moved to Sanita Hills in Duchess County.

I am glad that it still has Richmond Hillites visiting and writing. I am a little disappointed more of my childhood friends haven't found this site.

I used to peek in the window and the bar was in the same condition as it was on the last night. I think it was around 110th Street.

I was trying to learn more about the Lefferts Family after visiting their historic house museum in Brooklyn. I appreciate all the fascinating information and history I have learned from your Historical Society.

Lived on 121st St and Jamaica Ave for a short while and then to Lefferts Blvd in the 91st Ave block. Holy Child class of 1956, Brooklyn Preparatory 1960 and Fordham College of Pharmacy 1965.

Left Richmond Hill 1n 1960 but have great memories: Baseball at Smoky Hollow, ice skating on Jackson Pond, the wonders of Forest Park. We had a summer bungalow at Rockaway so never spent those months there.

I remember the streets lined with beautiful large trees and beautiful frame houses. In 1963 I returned to Richmond Hill to marry my wife Susan Mc Carthy of Richmond Hill in Holy Child Jesus Church which I have always considered to be a very beautiful Church.

After many years in NJ and Illinois, Susan and I visited RH and were disappointed in the lack of trees and the bad condition of the remaining ones. We were also surprised that Jahn's Ice Cream Parlour was completely empty on a Sunday afternoon.

Thanks to singer-guitarist Dennis Doyle & band mate for an enjoyable concert.

You fellows got some excellent dancers on their feet. Well done, and very neighborly of you.

I'd like to find out if anyone knows the history in that area during the 1960's and possibly the 1970s. please get back, thanks Ana.

on this day 16 years ago, Lt. Bob Nagel NYFD gave his life in an attempt to save others at ground zero. Bob was an alum of Molly HS and SJU as well as a Viet Nam vet, husband, and Dad.

I have many fond memories of visiting with them and my cousins! I am trying to find a photography studio that was there in 1960. She took my baby photo. thank you.

I found your website while doing research on John Adams when he lived in NYC.

He died after suffering a fractured skull fighting a two alarm in 1935. He complained of feeling faint and nobody called for a doctor or ambulance and he was dead in the morning. He was not given LINE OF DUTY. He had a high level of alcohol in his system BECAUSE HE WAS SELF-MEDICATING TO KILL THE PAIN.

I am petitioning the FDNY to add his name to the Memorial Wall. Any help or recommendations would be appreciated. Thomas was my grandfather and my cousin is Eddy O'Brien who grew up on 102nd Street. My family lived at 86-10 109th St and my aunt Agnes O'Brien Maass lived in the apartment building at 155th and Myrtle.

Hard to remember, since I was about 5 years old when we moved to 88th Ave between 102nd and 104th Street. I went to PS-66, PS-90 then Brooklyn Tech HS.

I left NY when I graduated from CCNY, in 1961. Many of the postings brought back many good memories.

Went to Bklyn College for a time. Then got involved in aviation. I learned to fly at Zahns in Amityville. Went to sea, got to circle the Globe. I had a great time in S.E. Asia. Now Im old in a "rest home".

Played ball on summer school teams and for Watt and Watt drug stores, lived on 133 st and Liberty ave / 103rd ave. met by war monument which had the names of all Richmond Hill's Vets.

My cousins Eddie and George Blank and Artie and Bobby Brooks were on two of the good softball teams of the time the Atomics and the Royals.

My growing up there was an education that carried me through my entire life. My father was the bartender at Baumans Bar and Grill. I think it was on 131 st and Liberty ave.

I can't find any information on Sherry Street. In 1916, my G-Grandparents lived on Sherry St.

Enjoyed finding your community and reading some of your history.

I grew up in Ozone Park off 101st Avenue on 102nd Street. Went to St. Mary Gate of Heaven.

From: Jacksonville Beach, Fla.

They would round you up in PS 66 -- the Dental Hygienist would call your name off a list and away you would go, to see Dr. Headlock with 5 Intern Dentists, no waiting, and the slow speed drill, and I do not recall Novocain being used.

Yikes, Not A Fun Event. This Gave Me Fear Of Dentists Early On. LOL, Ken Ball 104th st.

Dadson's, Mr Wiseman's son Phillip and I were classmates at P.S. 100 a couple of times. Also, the shop was across the street from my grandfather's plumbing shop (H A Snedeker)

didn't hear anybody mention Marty's pool hall above A&P on Liberty and 117 street or shopping at Dadson's men's store on Liberty ave and 115 street where my brother worked about 20 yrs. best place to buy clothes in a hurry.

From: walled lake, michigan

i would love to hear from anyone one who might remember me. those were the best years of my life. seems like yesterday. Jahn's ice cream still the best ever!! hope all rhhs grads from 1964 are well.

Had no idea of the early beginnings for this Duthch family in what is now Richmond Hill, Queens!

I am still curious about what happened to, Nancy Hecht, Harold Meyer, Judy Meyer, Edwina Mitchell, Henry Mueller, Doris Mueller, The Gendron Family, Billy Haas, John Ormond, and The Daily Family.

From: Beavercreek Ohio

I remember the splashing ponds in Forest Park.

The old maps and street names are very interesting to see and learn about. I remember my fun-filled summer months in Richmond Hill. Always went with my brother and sister to Cypress Pool on the J train, ate lots of ice cream at Jahn's, stayed cool at RKO movies, and Sunday's we went to Rockaway Beach!

I miss those days very much but thankful I had those times in my life.

My family relocated out west. Although I was quite small when we moved I still hold great memories of the neighborhood.

I was fortunate to live quite close to the Park and practically lived there. I grew up in Glendale from the 1950s to the 1970s.

From: Richmond Hill

Connie and Jimmy both died about 20 years ago and the place is now an Indian bar.

Lived on 111th street between Jamaica and 86th avenue. Went to Holy Child Jesus. Fond memories of the neighborhood and school. Had fun hanging out at PS66 and going to all the stores on the "avenue" such as "Marie's" candy store, Wise drugs, vegetable store on Jamaica Avenue, and Woolworth's to name a few.

they lived on 120th and 95 ave. I lived on 123 between 95 and atlantic.

they lived on 120th and 95 ave. I lived on 123 between 95 and atlantic.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help is the local parish for the area where your father grew up. It had (still has?) an elementary school, but not a high school. Among the possibilities for your father's HS could be: Bishop Loughlin, Brooklyn Prep (Jesuit), St.John's Prep (Vincentian), Trinity (Marianist brothers), St.Francis Prep (Franciscan brothers). I knew O'Neills and some of the names I remember are the Galvin's and the Hughes. I lived east of your father, at 120 St. and 101st Ave.

He was the owner of Al's Stereo Bar.

my memories are wonderful.

He was by far the youngest of the kids. His brothers were Don, Marty, Joe, and his cousin Bob Timurlane (who died in 1969 driving drunk in the area). His sister was Lillian. His father Martin died in 1965 and mother Lillian in 1973. He said his father's drinking hole was O'Neill's on Liberty and 113th. He had such fond memories of the neighborhood he grew up in.

We'd go to baseball games here in LA, especially when the Dodgers played the Mets. Every SINGLE time we sat next to someone who was either from Richmond Hill or around it and then it was non-stop talking for 3+ hours about the old neighborhood. Seems like it was a special place.

Do any of the names ring a bell? Anyone on here knew my father? He went to a Catholic HS. Something like Our Lady of Perpetual Help? He would be 75 years old right now. Thank you, Eric Mooney

It was interesting for me to see the proximity of this lovely neighborhood so close to the Big City. Thanks for website.

Patty McCormick and Louie Willet(moh) and others lost in vn.

My grandparents owned it and also a bar on Jamaica ave. The bakery was SCHMITTS.

my dad worked next door at the real estate. his name was lou. they were friends. I spent many days after school there.

best pizza in town. unfortunately dad passed away in 1987. miss Richmond Hill.

From: Fresh Meadows

Just wondering what year it shut down. Any one have info, please post, THANKS.

If you brought you birth certificate to Jahns on your Birthday, you got a free ice cream Sunday. One of my many childhood remembrances from Richmond Hill from far away and long ago.

I attended and graduated from PS 90 in 1963 where I had the best teachers, especially Mr. Zimmerman, Mrs. West, and Mrs. Wilson. RHHS was such a great school and so much fun.

Back then, it was great to go to Corde's after school and Gebhatdt's on Saturday after waking to the delicious aroma of the bakery. My dad owned Carlo' s Pizza on Lefferts Blvd and Liberty Ave and we would take the bus there every Friday to spend time with dad.

There were so many great places to go to in Richmond Hill. Jahns, the Richmond Hill Inn, Triangle Hofbrau, and we'd take the el to Jamaica for the great shopping. It was a very special place to grow up indeed.

I would also like to know what happened to Karl's Motors, a BSA and Yamaha dealership from that same period.

So much fun finding this website and reading everyone's entries. My family lived in Richmond Hill near Jamaica Hospital and Van Wyck Expressway area. I remember always going to Van Wyck Lanes, The Roller Rink, and Jahns! Great Memories!

My mom and I walked out with about $100 dollars in prizes, Father Shine kidded with us that this was a "Charity event" LOL.

I am still wondering if any one knows or remembers Nancy Hecht, Billy Haas, Harold Meyer, Judy Meyer, Henry or Doris Mueller, Ronny Saxon, John Farone, or Pat Mugavero.

Looking For members of the Gendron family or the Shields family. Take Care Be Well. Ken Ball

Appreciate this website and all the shared memories.

Only thing I remember was that there was a hand written sign on the door saying "Sorry, Closed Will Re Open Soon."

That was the end of Steve's. I loved his pizza! Did he open in another area? Got out of the business?

From: Brevard, North Carolina

I lived on 87th Ave, between 102nd and 104th St. I went to HCJ, RHHS, and I worked at Jahns 1946.

I went to sea at 17. I played baseball and basketball for HCJ with my brother Terry and just about everything else. The Shelton, Harvey's, Glenn's, Marshalls, Triangle. and points NESW.

From: Howard Beach, N.Y.

If you're still trying to contact Anthony M. did you try looking to see if he's on Facebook, if so message him.

So much history!

I lived at 8437 124 st Richmond Hill. My grandfather built this house and owned much of the property in and around this area. He was born in 1865 the night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, in the locksmith house south of Van Wyck Blvd and Hillside ave.

On April 30, I will reach my 85th birthday. Some day I hope to revisit my old neighborhood and will drop in to see you all in person

Thanks for website.

With Sean Courtney, Robert Capuder, Benedict Oddo, Kathleen Meyers, and all. I was an altar boy along with Sean, who became a priest - but later resigned. I can be called at 540-597-5677 (Roanoke, Va).

I am in bad health and need some good words.

I seem to have written his email down incorrectly and can't get in touch with him any more. If you read this Anthony, please send me a note so we can keep chatting. It's really great fun.

Looking for anyone who might remember her, I'm sure she would enjoy hearing from them. Not many in their graduating class left, I imagine. Feel free to email me! Thanks and take care!

Connie's Restaurant on 108 street and Jamaica Avenue, years ago, did they ever open another restaurant in different neighborhood? I was thinking about their fried baked ziti and wondered if they opened in another area. If anyone has news, please post. Thanks

I live near the Nathanial Woodhull gravesite.

From: Greenville S.C.

My childhood was great from growing up there.

Read your comments on Shea's Candy Store. I am Billy Shea. I hung out with your brother. Good Memories from that era.

I lived on 129th Street between 107th and 109th Avenue. I attended St Teresa of Avila. I would love to hear from all of my old class mates. I was in in the same grade as Katerinka Nalywajako, Debra Diaz, Nancy Lamberson, Bunny Wolf, Barbara Holland, Frances Ferger, Helen Werber to name a few.

Loved those days growing up in R.H. Walking down Liberty Avenue going to Uncle Jack's to buy a toy, or the record shop to buy the latest 45. My mother shopped at Tunics department store and Mayfair all the time. I was also a baton twirler for the Red Tops. Those parades are so vivid in my mind, marching down Liberty Avenue. And How can I forget the Lefferts theater or sometimes we went to the Casino theater under the El. But we always stopped at the penny candy store first!

Those were the days when kids knew how to play! Let's face it we played in the street with everyone who lived on the block. Little kids to teenagers all got to participate in a game of ringalivio, or jump rope, or hopscotch. Those were the days. Wouldn't trade those memories for anything! We had nothing in terms of material things, but we had fun, and learned values, and respect of elders, priests, nuns, and police. Best childhood ever.

We still have the house. We went to Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) Catholic Elementary School. I'm having an OLPH Reunion this May 6th! They call the neighborhood South Richmond Hill now.

They opened Aqueduct Race Track in 1959 and the Resorts World International Casino in 2011. Of the 5 boroughs, Brooklyn has the most people, but Queens is the largest in land area. I'm glad I found this site. It will rekindle a lot of memories.

I went to PS100 in 1964 to 1966. My teachers were Miss Jano and Mrs Kramer, then onto JHS 202.

Can anyone give me any info or stories they can share with me or maybe stories about the owners or workers? Thanks

As a family genealogist (Nono-professional) and history buff I feel as if I understand the hours it takes to research but also the satisfaction. I am on a recent quest to find out which corner of Atlantic Ave and Van Wyck Blvd the Camp Curtis Noyes trading camp for the War of Rebellion was located on.

I believe I have exhausted all on line info and will go to the library when I visit New York but wondered if anyone had information on this part of our history. Thank you

Been gone almost 40 years but to this day, my best of times occurred in Richmond Hill. Growing up in the 1970's in a care free sense of being was wonderful. Not a day goes by where I think about someone or something from Richmond Hill. Loved my Red 1969 Chevelle cruisin' the streets. Anyone out there, hit me back. Peace

It broke my heart to read a comment from 2006 where Annemarie asked about Lenny Tusa. I learned this very afternoon that Lenny passed away this week. He was part of the gang from 121st Street & 101st Ave where I lived. Gone too soon.

Invitations are going out and time is of the essence for replies since many are expected. 3-4 PM is registration and a Memorial Garden dedication. 5 P.M. is the Alumni Mass, Concelebrated by past and current Clergy. 6 PM - Midnight is dinner, music, beer, wine in the school, auditorium and the schoolyard.

I attended the 2010 reunion and reconnected with so many, everyone having a great time. I hope anyone interested will come back to enjoy what will be a wonderful day and night!

I went to PS 100 from 58-62. Teachers: Mrs. McManus, Mrs. Weisbart, Mrs. Morse, Mrs. FitzSimmons (first, second, third fourth grades)

I know there are some of you out there that use to egg Grannies candy store on 95th avenue and also played buck johnny on a pony by the garages.

Richmond Hill was selected in 2016 and we came to cheer on the 2017 groups: Chelsea, Manhattan; Corona-East Elmhurst, Queens; Hart Island, The Bronx; Mott Haven, The Bronx; Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn & West Harlem, Manhattan.

I would like to find Cathy, she worked on the third floor. Anyone who worked their or knew her Please contact me.

I grew up on Liberty Ave and 116 st went PS 100 and JHS 202, we had great times playing stickball on 107 Ave, football on the side streets, stoopball, going to the Rockaways on trains that cost 15 cents, and hanging out at Shea's candy store.

From: Nassau County

I found a blog, Heather Likes Food, and there's a recipe German Crumb Cake that is very similar to Gebhard's. It is so delicious and tastes even better the next day!

Went to PS 62 and then PS 108 and then Richmond Hill HS. Really enjoy reading the posts. Great memories.

Thanks for your resources. :isted are several others that might be helpful:

Great to be back visiting the old neighborhood!

My family moved away to Bergen County, NJ where I started the 6th grade. Does anyone have a copy of the P.S. 60 yearbook from 1980 which is the year I would have graduated? I only have fond memories of growing up on 96th Street and Jamaica Avenue.

My closest friends in the neighborhood were Steven Braun, Frank Dagostino, and David Laino. I hope everyone is doing well.

From: San Jose CA

I remember Gebhardt's - especially for rolls on Sunday after church. There was also a great bakery just the other side of Woodhnave Blvd. on Jamaica Ave. No great German bakeries here in CA and no terrific bagels either! But you can't fault the weather!

Truly a neighborhood institution in its heyday.

My father's great uncle, Charlie Mulligan, owned a bar called Mulligan's on Myrtle Ave, I believe in the lower 60's of streets.

It may have existed around 1940/1950. If anyone knows what the address was or even has pictures, please email me!

so many wonderful memories of living there. going to Jahn's for ice cream. the RKO Keith's for a 30 cent movie. later on going to the Triangle Hofbrau for a great meal with great company and beer. wish i could go back in time snd be ther right now. so much more to say for next time. anyone who might remember me, please send me an e-mail.

I have very fond memories growing up in this great neighborhood as ours. Reading past comments and for you that remember Gebhard's Bakery on Jamaica Avenue and 111th Street, I've stumbled upon a place that claims to make both the famous Gebhard's Crumbcake and Butter Ring Cake from Richmond Hill. Unbeleivable right? I plan on trying them. Have a wonderful 2017 to all.

My Mom was engaged to a guy named Robert who was killed in the Battle of the Bulge in 1944 or 1945. He acted with her in some of the plays, probably in 1943 or 1944. Is there a list of WWII casualties that went to RHHS?

My mother was Elizabeth Schnoor and my father was John Wubbenhorst, and they met after the war. My Dad served in the Merchant Marines. I'm trying to find out about Robert, who I think served in the army and was KIA.

From: Bay Ridge, Bklyn

I enjoy learning about the history of New York and its many neighborhoods.

That candy store was Karps! They also served food but had the best chocolate!

In Boca Raton we have Hoffman's Chocolates that is very similar but overpriced.
