The bar is a West Indian place, and Winther's is now a deli, at least that how it was when I visited the neighborhood in I was glad to see that the Greenwood Bakery was still there, now under ownership of West Indians, and they still had a lot of what was sold in the 50's, including the black and white cookies.
Grew up in Richmond Hill from - and have great memories. Thanks for your website in sharing all the great history!

Keep up the great work you are doing in preserving all that is truly irreplaceable! I remember Winther's very well. I lived on rd ave.
And the store made ice cream first time i ever had the real stuff at Winthers. From your dad's place I graduated to the silver dollar bar and grill right across the street where "Izzy" was the bartender owner?
He was a sweet old guy who died soon afterwards. His grandson ran the bar for a short while. The silver dollar became Al's stereo bar when Al bought it and was looking for a modern gimmick. I believe Al was a mechanical engineer but wanted to run his own business. Carls ice cream parlor was across the avenue and one block west. Carl's gig was making his own ice cream sandwiches on waffles.

Hi Claire, Regina and Mark! Looking back on my childhood I had alot of great friends and memories. This website brought back so many memories that had been lost for years. Going to Liberty Ave on Sat to eat pizza and zepoli's listening to the jukebox.
Our parents never had to worry if someone was going to hurt or take us. The only worry they had was probably if there were boys going to be around and that was innocent too. My favorite teacher was also Mr. Harnishfeger and I kept in touch writing with him til I sure would love to have a reunion with the others from the graduating class of SBJL I'm so sorry I couldn't make it to our 20th.

I lived in Kew Gardens at the Stevens House in to I was a Pan American Stewardess living with my teenage sister. We walk to Salerno's restaurant to eat always because neither one of us knew how to cook. Joe Salerno and his sisters were always so friendly and it felt good because being home sick at least we felt we were eating with family.
I often think of both of them and wonder if they are still going to the restaurant even if they are retired today and the young Salernos are now managing the family business. I remember Joe lived upstairs and he would invite my sister and I to listen to opera.
My grandmother was Corsican and we always had opera playing in the house all day long. That was another nice gesture that we remember from Joe Salerno. Blessings to both of them. Joe had a Thunderbird and often pass by our street on his way to his daily business, when he saw us walking to the restaurant he would offer a ride.
In those days business owners in the neighborhood really got to know their patrons and it was like family. Times were more relaxed and people took time to meet who they did business with. Richmond Hills, Kew Gardens and Forest Hills as I remember was quaint, full of older European immigrants that were just wonderful to talk to them and listen to their stories, both happy and sad.
Quite often they mistook us for Israeli, but they were just as friendly when I told them we were not. I am planning a trip to the area to retrace my life as a young lady living in such a beautiful place. I used the Q to go to JFK when the weather was good, the rest of the time several residents of the Stevens House used the services of a College student who choffered us in his spared time to earned money for books and tuition.
Lets not forget the friendly yellow cab. Yes it is time for me to pay a visit for a last time to that period in my life. Nothing stays the same so I am ancious to revisit the area with my sister who lives today in Astoria. Thank you for keeping this wonderful site.

I recently took my son back to visit my old schools and stomping grounds While many of the stores are now changed over it was like I never left. We even played stickball and went to Jahn's. I encourage all those who have moved out of RH to return with their kids.
It was nice reliving old memories and understanding that Life has moved on, but, a Big part of who we are today was determined by our experiences and happy times growing up in Richmond Hill. Saw the "hollywood page" and recalled the following films being shot in the area. Perhaps someone will recall.

The banana's would arrive from the LIRR boxcars and this place would package them up for shipment by truck to supermarkets etc. A lot of kids used to stop off and get a free banana by just climbing the loading dock stairs and looking inside.

I was born in Astoria, and in the 50's I traveled often to play basketball at the th st.

We played in the streets all the time and it was safe back then. No gangs, no crime, no drugs. I was a regular tomboy back then. We played outside because we loved it and never ran out of thing to do, we only ran out of enough daylight to do it!!! We played hopscotch, double dutch, stickball, war, dodgeball, flipped baseball cards, played with tops, yo-yo's, cut out dolls, red light green light, simon says, bottle caps and the list goes on and on.

Found this by accident - great site. My father was born on th St. My Aunt lived in the house till she died in the 80's. Prior to the legalisation of same-sex marriage, civil partnership was permitted.
One major criticism stated that the legislation effectively enshrined discrimination in law insofar as separate contractual arrangements with greater privileges continued to exist for opposite-sex marriages concurrent to lesser arrangements for those wishing to take out civil partnerships.
In particular, the denial of the right to apply to adopt to couples with a civil partnership had been cited as particularly discriminatory. Irish law only allowed gay people to adopt children as individuals, while allowing same-sex couples to jointly foster. The ability to enter into a civil partnership ended on 16 November On 5 November , the Government announced that a referendum to allow same-sex marriage would be held in the first half of Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is outlawed by the Employment Equality Act, and the Equal Status Act, These laws forbid discrimination in any of the following areas: The protections provided remain uneven.
This would remain the case even if the gay man paid the same pension contributions as his heterosexual colleague. This decision was condemned in a leading article and opinion piece in the Irish Examiner on 24 June as being contrary to the spirit of the Marriage Referendum but remains government policy. The Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act, outlaws incitement to hatred based on sexual orientation.
On 16 August , the Irish President signed the bill into law. The legislation went into effect immediately. On 19 October , Dr. Lydia Foy won her case in the High Court which ruled that the failure to allow her to obtain a new birth certificate recording her gender as female was in breach of her rights under the ECHR. Foy commenced new legal proceedings seeking to enforce the decision made by the High Court in Higgins signed the bill into law on 22 July The law came into effect on 8 September Irish adoption law allows for applications to adopt children by married couples, cohabiting couples or single applicants.
The legalisation of same-sex marriage in Ireland , in conjunction with the passage of the Children and Family Relationships Act and the Adoption Amendment Act , means that same-sex couples are in law permitted to adopt. A single gay person or one partner of a couple may apply and a same-sex couple may submit a joint application to foster children.
Additionally, lesbian couples have access to IVF and assisted insemination treatment. In January , Government Minister for Justice and Equality Alan Shatter announced that the Government would bring in laws by the end of the year to extend guardianship, custody, and access rights to the non-biological parents of children in same-sex relationships and children born through surrogacy and sperm and egg donation. On 21 January , the Government announced that a revised draft of the Children and Family Relationships Bill would give cohabiting couples and those in civil partnerships full adoption rights.
The bill was set to become law before the May same-sex marriage referendum. The purposes of the bill are to allow children to be adopted by their foster carers, where they have cared for the child for at least 18 months, and to allow two people regardless of marital status to adopt children, thus granting married same-sex couples the right to adopt.
The bill also allows for the adoption of a child by civil partners and cohabiting couples and gives children a greater say in the adoption process, among many other reforms to the adoption system. The bill was signed into law by President Michael D. Higgins on 19 July , becoming the Adoption Amendment Act As of , there is no law allowing female same-sex couples to be automatically recognised on the birth certificates and passports of their children.
Conversion therapy has a negative effect on the lives of LGBT people, and can lead to low self-esteem, depression and suicide ideation. Under the proposed bill, individuals found guilty of performing conversion therapies could be fined up to 10, euros and face up to a year in prison. The legislation has received the support of the Irish Council of Psychotherapy and many politicians and lawmakers.
Some politicians further described conversion therapy as the gay equivalent of female genital mutilation. The current sex education classes in Ireland have been described by many students and teachers as "archaic", "inadequate" and "biased", as well as "largely religious based", with reports of non-virgin students being humiliated, and LGBT issues rarely even mentioned.
The new classes would cover issues such as consent, the use of contraceptives, abortion, LGBT issues and sexuality.
In January , the Irish Blood Transfusion Service IBTS replaced a lifetime ban on donations from males who have ever had anal or oral sex with another male with a month ban. This followed intense campaigning on the issue by activists over a number of years, including a judicial review challenge to the policy in the Irish High Court.
He claimed this is in breach of EU law. He said that both failed to consider the length of time between a donor's last sexual experience and the end of a "window period" in which infections are sometimes not detected. Heneghan's previous sexual activity posed no risk of infection, according to HSE-approved advice and he said the service had no evidence upon which it could legitimately impose a lifelong ban on him donating blood. Following several adjournments of the case to allow the blood service and Department of Health to examine and develop the donation policies, in late June the Irish Blood Transfusion Service recommended that the lifetime ban on MSM be reduced to a month ban.
Later that week, Minister for Health Simon Harris agreed to the recommendations and announced the reduction would take place. However, no timeline was initially reported for the implementation of the new policies. On 26 July , Heneghan dropped his High Court challenge against the service as an end to the lifetime deferral on MSM blood donors had been announced in the interim.
On 2 October , it was reported that Minister Harris would implement the new policy from 16 January , almost seven months after he announced the policy change.
On 16 January , Heneghan now 25 attended a blood donation clinic in D'Olier Street , Dublin and became the first man who has had sex with another man to donate blood openly in the Republic of Ireland since the lifetime deferral policy was first introduced in the s. However, he also criticised the new 12 month deferral policy on MSM and called on Ireland's Health Minister to initiate a review of the IBTS and replace the 12 month deferral period for MSM with no deferral or a 3 month deferral on all donors following sexual intercourse.
Previously, in August , Heneghan had alleged that the Irish Blood Transfusion Service had discriminated against him despite his assertion that he had never had oral or anal sex with another man. Ireland is notable for its quick and drastic change in attitudes and public perception toward LGBT people, homosexuality and same-sex relationships.
Up until the s, the climate for LGBT people was one of high homophobia and public antipathy. LGBT individuals would mostly either stay in the closet, move to England or commit suicide. In the s, small LGBT groups began to emerge and organise politically.
Over the following years, LGBT groups and activists began to slowly enter the public eye and raise awareness of their cause and movement, In , Ireland officially decriminalised homosexuality, celebrated as a landmark victory by LGBT groups, which had filed suit up to the European Court of Human Rights to struck down the ban.

She is depicted as attractive yet harsh. Golf has historically been a sport for males, and Jordan's presence there was not the norm for the time.

Women were seeking individuality and equality. Most men were not happy with the Women's Rights Movement because it went against the traditional view of women as the property of their husbands. Jordan's immoral behavior demonstrates society's negative opinion of women of this type. Myrtle is the wife of George Wilson and the mistress of Tom Buchanan. She is depicted as a vulgar and classless social climber who will do anything to escape her miserable and unsatisfying life of poverty and social shame.
Myrtle dies violently in the story, being run over by Daisy after darting in front of the car. Myrtle mistakenly thought that Tom had come to free her from her miserable life but instead was mowed down by his wife.
Myrtle's death represents punishment for her sins and reinforces the idea that people cannot escape the social class system into which they were born. The death might also have been an attempt by the author to warn readers of what could become of them if they indulged in the greed and gluttony of the time.
