We had two candy stores on the next block (Lil & Irving's and across Quentin Rd down the street was Lil & Lou's). Both had large selections of penny candies, a soda fountain, school supplies (very handy on the way to PS 222 further down the street), some cosmetics, an array of tobacco products, and the newsstand out front with an open cigar box for the coins (all on trust where you could make change). There were five or six daily papers, including "The Brooklyn Eagle".
Kramer's Ice Cream parlor of course had a fountain. They made some of their own ice cream, and they had a juke box, which made the place a teen hangout.
