Henry's and the Gander – two of the famous local watering holes. I was rarely in either one but stories out of Henry's included cops taking target practice in the basement. Big guy named Campbell married same-year schoolmate of mine – Ginny Toomey (sp?). Remember well that Parkchester Beer Distributor jeep zipping around the neighborhood delivering beer. My father was a patron of the store on Tremont under the RR – What a location! He drank Utica Club. Guy named Bernie ? was a driver. He was in my sister's crowd. Mr. Christian's and The Cuckoo Clock were latecomers. Geez, we sure had enough bars in that area. All gone now. You might know John Brady – also a Marist – I think he taught at the Mount.
