And they all did business. The candy store on 178th ST and Mohegan, same block as PS6 as my go to store. The reasons were very simple. I lived on the same block as the store and my friend's family owned it for many years. Outside the store was a hangout for many of us until we spread our wings and moved on to adolescence and adulthood. Before and during WW2 few people in the area had telephones at home. The telephone number in the 2 booths in the store were the numbers that were called and they gave the name and address of who they were calling. If I happened to be nearby, I was asked go and inform them of the call. This errand and delivering groceries for the grocery next door was my hopes to make enough money to retire.
