WOW!! Yes we walked and walked - even though the BX12 was pretty reliable -- if we wanted to just GET there we walked. It was great in the Spring walking past the Botanical gardens when the wild lilacs were blooming. Great ANY time when we walked to and from Arthur Avenue with Nonna Lucia -- or walking to Schrafft's after we had walked to Our Lady of lourdes, and then....waaalking...with Mom Sylvia to....Alexxxanders' -- altho we liked the shoe department we hated the girdle department which Mom seemed to gravitate towards. And then walking under the P Pkway El was so much fun for us kiddoes! 2 movie thatres, 5&10, candy store, bagel store, Penrods, the Pharmacy, Grand Union, cool clothing stores, the Cigar maker's shop...On and on - all gone now. But for what IS there-- there are new kiddoes making new memories.
