Years ago when I posted this Flatbush and Church was the very slight favorite with The Junction - Flatbush and Nostrand being a close second. One poster put down the cross streets of his favorite bar.
Semi-unrelated -- I used to be an alley rat -I hung out at Kings Lanes and many times I would be given a nickel by the bowlers to go to the Junction and pick up a copy of The Daily News when the newspaper truck dropped off the pile of papers. Then I would run the distance from there back to Kings Lanes. They would check the paper to see what "the number" was for the numbers bets they had. My reward was to keep the paper.
