Everything! I miss the shopping on Pitkin Avenue (we had some great stores).Families would take walks there on Sunday and then it was lunch at Lan Fong or The Little Oriental. After movies with a date there was The Chocolate Shop. I miss the getting off the train on Stillwell Avenue to the most delicious smells of Nathans, custards, salt wayer taffy all mixed with the wonderful aroma of the ocean. I miss The Eastern Parkway roller rink and Freddie Fitzsimmons bowling. The little coconut stand on Strauss street. I miss the bakeries that used real whipped cream. I miss all the innocence of those days and all the people and friends I grew up with.
