My handle was my full name on the JFK forums and I'd rather not revisit that nonsense.
~~~I don't remember that McDonalds was ever a Wetson's but that there were two Wetson's that I remember, one at the Freeport train station (that later became a Dunkin Donuts) and on on Sunrise Hwy in RVC.
~~~ RVC brings Jahn's Ice Cream Parlour to mind!
~~~ My best friend's mother worked in Bethpage (where they had lived before moving to Merrick) and would bring home Zorn's every Friday evening. It was the best and had great sides also.
(My mother would bring home Eng's after going to the beauty parlour and in later years after she changed beauty parlours would bring home Wolfie's)
~~~ I don't remember the Charcoal Chef but must've gone there a few times. Courtney's doesn't ring a bell at all.
~~~ I was never a fan of Sheppy's.
~~~ Anyone else remember the Sunrise Village?
Was your dad's service station on the same (North) side of the street as the Gables Movie Theatre (Yes, I know that it's long gone). If so, my Dodge Challenger was stolen from there ..
