Comments:Stumbled upon this site, again, very cool. Moved from Syosset at 14ish years old and would have graduated with the class of 1969. Some memories I have are the basketball games at the high school on those freezing friday nights, Thick N Thin pizza place at the First National and walking down to Syosset village after school.

Comments: I knew Billy Schulman. We first met when I went to a summer camp in PA, which shall remain anonymous due to the fact that I was badly abused by the counselors and other campers (not Billy; he and two counselors, Ms.Shelly Brown and a fellow named Glen were the only real friends that I had in that place) back in the summer of 1968.

 He wasn’t in our bunk at that time but we saw each other, got involved in camp activities and he treated me as an equal and vice versa.

Billy joined our bunk the following year and our friendship grew over the years; The last time that I saw him was the summer of 1973 when we went to Camp Lymelight (which was then situated in Accord New York. Sadly Camp Lymelight was destroyed in a deadly thunderstorm years after both Billy and I left there) Unlike the camp in PA that I went to for five years.The Summers of 1968 to 1972.

Here I was treated with kinds and genuine support and Billy was also treated right too.

We performed two Laurel And Hardy skits during the Camp’s activities and we got to see a lot of
interesting places including the site where the big rock concert Woodstock had been held years before.

I had seen Billy perform in The NBC TV/“Hallmark Hall Of Fame” production of”Teacher Teacher”with Mr. McCallum, Mr.Grizzard and Mr.Davis even though he didn’t win the emmy for his performance.
|
Billy gave a top notch performance in the show.

After Camp Lymelight he moved away to Florida and I was not able to get his new mailing address or phone number. I never saw him again.

When I found out that he had been killed by a reckless driver in the late 1980’s. (Crying) I lost my best friend.

Ironically I met Mr.McCallum in NYC years ago and I told him that I enjoyed his work with Billy and with messrs.Davis and Grizzard in “Teacher Teacher," He said to me,"Thanks Kevin. I’m glad that we were able to entertain you and that you still remember our work in that show.”

P.S. I’m also an actor and a writer.

Comments: Wow ! Looking back, Syosset was a really great place to grow up. Had lots of great friends, and did way too much partying , but somehow managed to survive it all and live to tell the tale(s). 
I spent quite a bit of time in the Village Tavern (the VT as it was known), and learned to play pool there. I wonder if anyone has any old pictures of the place, I think it disappeared around 30 years ago.
I'm still in close touch with some of my buds from the good old days.
Great website !

Comments: Good morning.
I viewed your memory album of Syosset with fond memories. We rode through Syosset from Bethpage every day when I attended St. Dominic’s High School, and stopped many a day for a snack, soda, or to go to the movies.

I am wondering if anyone would know the whereabouts of any members of the Ballantine family. I went to St. Dominic’s from 1964-1968 with Kathleen Ballantine and I am trying to locate her for our 45th high school reunion. She would be about 62 years of age at this point. She had attended St. Edward parish.

Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

I also recall the 70mm screen and Syosset Cinerama.
Years later I met Andy Margolin--he had been one of the Cinerama projectionists and was now the co-owner of KELMAR--a successful projection booth equipment supplier.

Comments: Another item about Billy Schulman, about what kind of person he was: he and I attended Harry B Thompson Junior High at the same time, and although I can't recall how we might have first connected, I remember saying hi to him now and then when we would pass in the halls. I also remember feeling jealous when I heard he was acting with David McCallum, as I had been a huge U.N.C.L.E. fan. Somewhere around that time, I remember finding myself just outside of the gym entrance, beset by several ninth graders, bullies. I remember being pushed by one of them against a wall. And I remember the sweetest kid in the world appearing out of nowhere and coming between me and the bullies, hammering his pencil-thin arms against them, clearly upset, shouting Leave my friend alone! Leave my friend alone!
I remember the bullies dispersing.
I don't remember anything else about this incident. I certainly was a bit traumatized. I like to think I thanked Billy profusely for what he did. But I just can't remember what passed between us.
I just learned, from the other Billy story, that Billy died in 1986 while crossing a street. I am crying as I write this, and I am thankful to have met Billy.

Comments: SHS Class of '69. I still have vivid memories of growing up in Syosset.  We moved there in 1954.  My twin sisters, Sue and Joan are 72 graduates.  The South Grove development was still under construction when we move in.  Having an amusement park in your town - Lollypop Farm - was special.  Memorial Day parades down Jackson Avenue I still have pictures of.

As I scrolled down the comments list, there were several commenters I fondly remember.  Syosset High was an exciting place in the sixties.  Syosset was a great place to grow up.

Comments: Great website! Thank you! My sister Gale and I grew up in the house at 17 Fifth Place.  My parents, Jacob Morris Strongin (1917-1981) and Esther Rose Strongin (b 1921), bought the house in 1956; Mom sold it in 1998. Dad, who was a typographer and graphic designer, was the creator of the New York Islanders logo. Our basement was a giant design studio and darkroom.  During the week that Dad worked on the logo (sometime in 1970), I was barred from entering for fear that I would make “creative changes” to his design!

Comments: In 1972 by father bought the Syosset Town & Country Diner, I was 17 years old and going into my senior year at Farmingdale High School. My father opened and owned several successful restaurants and was betting on turning around this diner to the days that made it popular. The diner was closed and renovated inside. The grand opening brought crowds from breakfast to dinner. I was so impressed with the Chefs, short order cooks, bakers and service staff. I met so many great people who worked with us as well as those that worked and lived in the neighborhood. I recently drove down Jericho Turnpike in Syosset, gone is the Syosset Town & Country replaced by the Celebrity Diner, other businesses that are gone from the landscape are Villa Victor, Labells, Peter Yees, Manero’s when it was on the north side of the turnpike and the Burger King across from the diner. The competition for the Town & Country Diner was the Skyliner Diner and the Syosset Town house Diner, both now gone. I know some people say change is good, but I believe that the 70’s were the good days for Syosset. I would love to see people post other pictures of the Town & Country Diner since I have none to share myself.

What great fond memories reading your great scrapbook.  Interesting to see how many famous people graduated from Syosset - Natalie Portman, etc.  I was in the Syosset Class of 1966 Senior Play - Brigadoon, directed by the one and only Harvey Karp (what a wonderful man)....we had a blast doing that play and we were like a very close family throughout the practices and afterwards as well.  Gee, I wonder where everyone is now ???  If any of you from Class of 1966 are out there......speak up here.

Again, thanks.

Ohio;  Syosset High School Class of 1961 

Comments: Hi John (and anyone else who sees this from the '61 era, give or take a couple of years).  Just happened upon the scrapbook (can't even remember how I got here; Web surfing definitely exploits attention-deficit disorder), capping a month of Syosset-related memories that began with a recent detour on a trip east from our home in Ohio.  I took my daughter to Christiano's for lunch and just missed reconnecting with someone in the family because they'd recently sold it to new owners.  (When living in Syosset, I lived up the hill from there, on Sherman Drive, around the corner from Delin's beatnik pad on Greenway Circle.)  I last saw Jimmy Christiano when we played in an Eastern Masters Tennis tournament somewhere on Long Island back around 1988.  Hadn't seen many classmates since 1961, since my family packed up and moved to Canada practically the day after I graduated -- with the notable exception of having enjoyed the great reunion you and Margo Gorman Morris and others organized in 1998.  Even though I moved back to the NYC area in 1968 and stayed until 1995, I hadn't reconnected with more than a couple of Syosset friends until your hard work getting a few hundred of us together.  I've passed back through Syosset a few other times over the years and I'm just now beginning to see significant changes in my old neighborhood.  Many of the 1950's ranches and Cape Cods have been renovated or replaced by much bigger houses.  The high school looks pretty much the same, though, especially from the perspective of the tennis courts where my daughter and I worked off our Christiano's lunch.  John, thanks for maintaining this labor of love, which gives all of us a chance to reconnect with some of the best years of our lives.

Comments: Lived in Syosset 1958-1980: Edgewood Drive.  We would take our wagons to a pumpkin patch behind lollipop farm to get "little" pumpkins.  Attended Village School, Southwoods Jr. High, after moving to Candy Lane, Harry B. Thompson, and finally graduated from Syosset High in 1971. We were county champs that year (my husband was on the football team; Chris Kupec was the quarterback).

We went to the pond on Convent Road for ice skating, rode bikes down Jackson Avenue to the 5&10 store.  Marching in the Memorial Day parades as a Brownie and getting free ice cream at the end.  Baseball games on the street after dinner.  Van Sise Farms and apple cider.  Bike rides down Muttontown Road to the old deserted "Gold Coast" estates.  Horseback riding off Split Rock Road.  Pizza from Christiano's', the best!  

I am grateful for those memories and having grown up in Syosset at that point in time.

Comments: Love your site! I lived in Syosset from about 1942 to 1946, on the corner of Jackson Ave. and Convent Rd.  I have many pictures from  those days. Let me know if you would like some.  I remember the German war prisoners working the farms.  I remember the parties in the fire department building and I learned to dance the Poliish hop from my girlfriend's dad.
I remember during the war when we Hicksville high school children helped pick the crops because the young men were away fighting the war! I remember so many fun things from those days!!  --Going to the post office to pick up the mail after the mail train came in -- the horse and buggy picking up guests from the railroad station when the Powers had company.  Mrs. Stiiler's florist shop where I worked!!  I have two signed copies of Mr. Stiiler's songs.
      So many memories!!!

Comments: I moved from Astoria, Queens to Syosset in 1952.  It was a terrifying experience.  We were the first people living in "Ranch Village", off Cold Spring Road next to the firehouse.  There were only potato fields and a couple of other houses ~ where was everything and everybody?!  As I grew up, I found I loved Syosset and everything it represented, and I miss it still.  The village was a magical place, and everyone knew everybody. My best friend, Linda Stiles, and I were always on the go and soon found Galiza Stables where we spent many years with our ponies, then horses.  Our life was full of adventure and fun.  It was a safe, wonderful hang out and we always found something exciting to do.  I went to just about every school, because they kept building more for all the new people moving there. 
 I often wish I could back to those special days and that great place.  I moved away several times, but always came back, until I moved to Huntington in '92.  I finally moved to Brunswick, GA in 1999, but not by choice.
Even though it has grown extensively, it is still a great place in my mind.

Comments: Our family moved to Syosset (actually Birchwood Park in Jericho) in 1957, where I started 1st grade at Robbins Lane School. The homes and school in our area were new and without the traditions and history that your website shows. We filled our time with play as children, and with more serious pursuits as we emerged into the 60s ... developing our talents, building friendships, looking for our place in the larger world.

It's been a great experience to traverse the pages of this scrapbook to both see Syosset in a grander historical perspective and to reminisce.

One stunning memory that got revived was Mrs. Babcock. I remember her as a tall, slender, slightly eccentric woman who visited our school (and now I don't remember if it was Robbins Lane, or Southwoods, or even Syosset High). She had a distinctive presence to me, perhaps because our teacher had prepped us. I remember thinking how odd and unusual the very wealthy are! I do not recall what she brought to her visit. I am suddenly struck with curiosity about her...

I was aware of the estates in our North Shore enclave and surroundings, because I used to bicycle, starting at Robbins Lane, up into Muttontown off Jericho Turnpike, and then on and on for hours, North and East. Stately homes and grounds that were of another impenetrable world--of what? Business? The arts? International statesmanship? Civic responsibility? Madness? I did not understand.

It was not unusual for me to arrive at Cold Spring Harbor or one of the beaches with my artist's pad and some pencils or water colors in tow. To study the whaler's windows high atop the homes and imagine the women and children searching the sea for their family men returning from their voyage.

The Planting Fields, the King Zog estate, Lollipop Farm, The Fish Hatcheries, Sunken Orchard... were all names of places that were part of my landscape.

The amazing thing about reflection is it enhances one's love of life, to realize our connection to a time and place.

Thank you.

Comments: Moved to Syosset in 1956, age 10 from Queens.  My parents bought a house at 16 Loretta Drive and I initially attended Alice P. Willits elementary school.  I graduated from Syosset HS in 1964, and joined the service after two rather dismal years in college in 1966.  I had a great military career.  I graduated from military flight school in 1967, went to war four times; Vietnam twice, Panama and finally Desert Storm.  Retired as a Colonel in 1994 and became a Chief Pilot for a corporation in York, PA.  I retired again in 2009 and now have the time to do all the things I missed while traveling all over the world at the beck and call of the government and past employers.  My sister, Joanne also graduated from Syosset, class of 1967.  She now lives in FL.

I found the website by accident and was enthralled by it.  I spent an hour on it today at the expense of working outside!!  I loved it.  I included on my favorites list and will view it often!!  Thanks for the memories!!

Comments: I grew up on Pine Road and am the youngest of 6 children, Neal, Randy, Bradley , Mitchell and Siri. I graduated SHS in 1978, and after a divorce , I raised my 2 children right here in Syosset.  My daughter is 21 and my son is going into his senior year at SHS.  The story regarding the Candela Award really hit home.  My father, Lester Smith was a founder of SBL, and coached my 4 brothers throughout the years.  His name was on one of the missing plaques when the Library moved.  My father passed away in 1995, and my mother has since painstakingly tried to get the plaque hung at the current Library to no avail.  My dad worked so hard and put his heart and soul into creating a safe and fun place for boys to get involved with the right things, and his legacy is falling  by the wayside due to people not willing to go that extra mile to locate the plaques, like my father went the extra mile to help the boys of Syosset.  My mom will be 85 in September and to see Lester’s name up where it belongs would mean everything to her and our whole family.

Comments: MEMORIES


WE, OUR FAMILY, CONSISTING OF MY HUSBAND, AL, OUR FIVE CHILDREN, JACK, ELLEN HERRICK HALPERN, LAURIE HERRICK STERN, SCOTT AND STUART, MOVED INTO WOODBURY IN 1960.  ALL OF OUR CHILDREN GRADUATED FROM SYOSSET HIGH SCHOOL IN THE YEARS 1968, 1969, 1971, 1973 AND THE SPIRIT OF 1976.  

SYOSSET TO ALL OF US - WAS AND IS - HOMETOWN U. S. A.

SOME OF YOU MIGHT REMEMBER S.Y.A.C. - SYOSSET YOUTH ATHLETIC COUNCIL WHOSE ORIGINAL COMMISSIONER WAS WILLIAM (BILL) KUPEC, FORMER PRINCIPAL OF SYOSSET HIGH SCHOOL.    AT THAT TIME, I WAS EXECUTIVE SECRETARY OF S.Y.A.C. AND OUR PURPOSE WAS TO ORGANIZE SYOSSET ATHLETIC PROGRAMS - OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT PROGRAMS - UNDER ONE ROOF, WITH ONLY ONE EXCLUSION AND THAT WAS SPARTAN FOOTBALL, WHO PREFERRED TO BE ON THEIR OWN.

OUR ORIGINAL PROGRAMS INCLUDED NORTH AND SOUTH LITTLE LEAGUE, BABE RUTH, SYOSSET BASKETBALL LEAGUE (SBL) AND FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, STAN MUSIAL LEAGUE.  WE INITIATED THE GIRL'S SOFTBALL LEAGUE, THE BOY'S SOFTBALL LEAGUE AND THE FIRST SUMMER SOCCER PROGRAM IN SYOSSET.

WE, JERRY KASS (AT THE COMMUNITY PARK THERE IS A FIELD NAMED FOR JERRY) AND I  STARTED THIS PROGRAM FOR OUR SONS AS WELL AS SOME OF THE MEN FROM, I BELIEVE, THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.  ALL OF THESE "KIDS" WANTED TO CONTINUE PLAYING EVEN AFTER HIGH SCHOOL DAYS AND WE WORKED TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE. 

WE, JUNE VILLAZON AND I,  STARTED GIRL'S SOFTBALL BY RECRUITING PLAYERS FROM THOMPSON AND SOUTH WOODS BY SIGNING UP GIRLS AT THE SCHOOLS BY SITTING OUTSIDE WHERE THE BUSES PICKED UP STUDENTS.  WHY WAS THIS PROGRAM STARTED?  OUR GIRLS THOUGHT THAT IT WAS NOT FAIR, THAT ONLY BOYS COULD PLAY SOFTBALL.  SO JUNE AND I, ASSISTED BY JOHN PARNON, MADE THIS POSSIBLE.

OUR SYAC SUMMER SOCCER PROGRAM BEGAN WITH THE AID OF A THOMPSON SOCCER TEACHER AND COACH -LEROY FRANCK.  A SYOSSET RESIDENT AND GRADUATE OF SYOSSET HIGH SCHOOL, GORDON BARR, RAN THIS SUMMER PROGRAM FOR US.  THIS WAS OUR PROGRAM THAT WAS COACHED ONLY BY HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES AND THEN SENIORS OF SYOSSET HIGH SCHOOL - NO PARENTS WERE ASKED TO MANAGE OR COACH.  SYAC SOCCER WAS A PROGRAM FOR BOYS ONLY.  IT WAS AT A MUCH LATER DATE, THAT SYOSSET SOCCER TOOK OVER THE PROGRAM OF SYOSSET SOCCER FOR THE BENEFIT OF BOTH GIRLS AND BOYS. 

THROUGH SYOSSET YOUTH ATHLETIC COUNCIL, S.C.A.N WAS BORN.   AT THAT TIME, S.C.A.N. WAS KNOWN AS SYOSSET COMMITTE AGAINST NARCOTICS.  IT WAS LATER CHANGED TO SYOSSET COMMITTEE ABOUT NARCOTICS.  MANY CHANGES HAVE TAKEN PLACE SINCE THAT TIME WITH SCAN. 

WE WORKED CLOSELY AND WELL WITH THE TOWN OF OYSTER BAY AND THE SYOSSET SCHOOL SYSTEM, ORGANIZING THE USE OF ALL OF OUR BALL FIELDS FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL THE RESIDENTS.

YEARLY AWARDS WERE PRESENTED TO THOSE VOLUNTEERS WHO GAVE THE GREATEST ASSISTANCE TO MAKING ATHLETIC PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO THE CHILDREN OF THE SYOSSET-WOODBURY AREA.

 ORIGINALLY, THERE WAS A BRONZE PLAQUE ON THE OUTSIDE WALL OF THE OLD SYOSSET LIBRARY ON JACKSON AVENUE.  THIS WAS CALLED THE "CANDELA" AWARD, NAMED IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL CANDELA.  AT A LATER DATE, AN ADDITIONAL AWARD CALLED THE "JERRY KASS" AWARD WAS ADDED, AS WAS ANOTHER BRONZE PLAQUE.

WHEN THE LIBRARY MOVED TO SOUTH OYSTER BAY ROAD AND THE L.I.E., THE PLAQUES WERE PLACED INSIDE OF THE LIBRARY.

FOR WHATEVER THE REASON, THE LIBRARY BOARDS DECIDED TO REMOVE THESE TWO PLAQUES, NEVER TO BE SEEN ANYMORE BY THOSE OF US THAT WORKED SO HARD AND FOR SO MANY YEARS TO MAKE ALL OF THESE ATHLETIC PROGRAMS POSSIBLE TO EACH AND EVERY RESIDENT AND THEIR FAMILIES.

THE LAST I HEARD, THESE PLAQUES ARE IN "SOMEONES" BASEMENT.

 REPEATED REQUESTS BY MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY TO THE LIBRARY BOARD TO RETURN THESE PLAQUES TO THE WALLS OF OUR SYOSSET LIBRARY, HAVE MET WITH NEGATIVE RETURNS.

 WHERE DO THE MEMBERS OF THE LIBRARY BOARD FEEL THESE COMMUNITY PLAQUES BELONG?  WE HAVE NO COMMUNITY BUILDING THAT SERVES THE SYOSSET-WOODBURY AREA BETTER THAN OUR LIBRARY AND THE LIBRARY IS SUPPORTED BY EACH OF ITS RESIDENTS.  

 THAT IS A PRETTY SAD COMMENTARY THAT THE LIBRARY BOARD REFUSES TO MOUNT THESE PLAQUES IN HONOR OF THE HARD-WORKING RESIDENTS OF THEIR TOWN.

GUESS I SAID ENOUGH FOR NOW.
SINCERELY,
SYDELL HERRICK

MORE MEMORIES
P. S.   29 YEARS AGO, ON FATHER'S DAY,  OUR SON, SCOTT WAS HIT AT 93 MPH BY A D.W.I. DRIVER ON WOODBURY ROAD IN FRONT OF GEICO.  AT THAT TIME, THE D.W.I. DRIVER RECEIVED A SIX MONTH'S REVOCATION OF HIS LICENSE AND A $250 FINE.  HAPPY ENDING - ALTHOUGH SCOTT  WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR 13 WEEKS, TODAY, HE IS IN GOOD SHAPE, LIVING IN MARYLAND WITH HIS TWO CHILDREN.

Comments: I'm not from N.Y. but from Washington state.  The love of my life grew up on Robert Circle in Syosset until he left the area in the early 70's for Berkeley, CA.  (He graduated from Berkeley H.S. in 1971).  We discovered this site about 6 months ago and I have to say it was very strange being a Seattle girl and still recognizing about 95% of the places on this site even though I've never been to the east coast.  He'd told me so many wonderful stories about growing up in Syosset - so many details - it was fascinating.  It still is.  I'm so glad we found it when we did - it brought back so many good memories for him.  He loved growing up there.  My love's name is Keith Stackhouse...he passed away in his sleep in Des Moines, WA on June 1, 2009.  The cause is still to be determined by the M.E.

Comments: Wow, what a lot of familiar names, places and memories.  I want to
identify “unidentified” in the photo on Hofgren’s Hill in part 1—me.
I’m Mike Hofgren’s little sister Krissy, who tagged after her three big
brothers everywhere possible.  What a miserable hand-me-down that jacket
was—so short in the waist the snow needed to be extracted after each
sled ride.  Remember that great bump in the middle of the hill that made
you go airborne?  And the upper short hill with the dog-leg turn?
Among playmates was Priscilla’s brother Christy, before he switched
from Village School.

Anyone who remembers me knows that I play the violin.
I still play (a little, I have some arm and neck issues) and teach violin and piano.
My entire family have left Long Island - we lived on Colgate Lane for a while and then in some condo complex that I can't remember the name of.
Have great memories of going to the Harrugate Music Festival in Wales with the chorus, hanging out at the ice skating rink with the "skate guards" and of course, the Syosset-Woodbury Community Park - the pool especially.
Haven't in touch with too many since high school until I signed up on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.
Would LOVE to hear from some! Especially graduates of 74 and 75.
Thanx so much for doing this site.
By the way, there are quite a few Syosset graduates in the Boston area - especially Newton which is where I live.
About 10 years ago, a group of my friends joined at a mutual friend's house to chaperone the kids at Halloween. We split up into small groups - I wound up with two other woman and a bunch of kids. As we were chatting, I asked the other two woman where they grew up. Both said they graduated from Syosset High - the 3 of us were astounded!
It's a small, small world!

John,
 
You and Pam have done an outstanding job of assembling this wonderful collection of pictures and memorabilia regarding historic Syosset.  I was saddened to learn of Pam’s passing, she and I (and you) were neighbors and friends in North Syosset.
 
As far as bio info goes:  I was born in Huntington Hospital and raised at 2 Monfort Place, right behind the Split Rock School. (Not a good set of geographical  circumstances considering the “gregarious, out going personality” of my formative days.  Over the years Frank Manerell , Wilson Gearhardt and I became very close.
 

I attended Split Rock School until the 6th grade and then we all entered the new, partially completed Syosset High School. I graduated in 1961 after experiencing 6 of the best years one could imagine. (Sock Hops, The Pajama Game, class trip to Washington DC, Teenage Club, Sal’s Candy Store, Tobay Beach, to mention only a few. And of course, the Fabulous Furys….if anyone remembers…)
 
After graduation from Syosset in 1961, I attended the University of Pennsylvania at California Pa. and was certified in education K-8th grades.  I spent the next 35 years working in the Commack Public Schools in various positions.
 
Soon after college I married Judith Cooper (Judy Orobona) and we have a son Michael, aged 38. Together, Judy and I lived in East Northport for 38 years until recently moving to Valley City, Ohio.
 
John, if you have any plans for an up-date of your collection of pictures please contact me because I have a pile of old pictures  featuring a number of the locals from the Split Rock era and area.
 
Again, a job well done and all the best of luck with your book.

Comments:

In 1975 my parents bought a ranch house on Cold Spring Road for the "bicentennial promotional" price of $76,000.  The house has since been torn down but it was a great location for kids, with woods in the back and a nice long driveway for skidding out with the Big Wheel.  We were diagonally across the road from the farm on the corner of South Woods Rd and Cold Spring Rd (Horan Farm?), and in the morning we would hear the booming cannon used to scare crows away from the corn.  On a quiet weekend afternoon, one could even hear high school football games.  A little further down Cold Spring Rd was Stillwell Rd and the horse farms.
My early elementary school years were spent in Mineola, but in fourth grade I returned to Syosset and went to Berry Hill Elementary, right before the scandalous closing of Split Rock and its students' integration into our school (also into Village Elementary if memory serves).  Went on to South Woods Junior High/Middle School and the High School.  In 1987 we moved around the corner to Morris Court (off Cherry Lane).
Though my years in Syosset weren't the happiest, I do have fond memories of: sledding behind Berry Hill, "pizza day" at school featuring Christiano's, the dollar bills stuck to Christiano's ceiling and the photo of Billy Joel behind the bar, working at C-Town in high school, buying school supplies at Scott's 5 & 10, the lonnnnng perilous walk into town along sidewalk-free Cold Spring Road, and discovering the hidden nooks and crannies of SHS (back in the days of open campus - graduated in 1991). 
Thank you for the photos of the "Syosset" movie theater (the Syosset Triplex to me).  My husband grew up in Huntington Station and insists there was no such thing.
Two questions:
* does anyone know the name of the farm by the Maine Maid Inn?  We used to go there to pet/feed the goats and horses.
* when did the great rivalry with Hicksville start?  My Mom lives there, and my brother got in more than his share of scraps when he wore his Syosset jacket (of course, this may have just been Joe - he had a standing chess match with Mr. Tomashevsky at Berry Hill since he spent so much time in his office!).

Hi Larry Hirschberger here, now living in Ithaca, New York, where
I've been since 1978.

I was born at 84 Kathleen Drive in 1955, went to A.P. Willits,
Thompson and Syosset HS.  I have an older sister and brother,
Virginia ("Ginny") and George, and a younger brother Steve.

I have fond memories of growing up in Syosset,  I thought it was a
great place to be, it's smallish size, the beaches close enough to
hitch to, the city nearby.  I remember playing/partying in Spark's
woods, hanging out at the Sheedy's house on Berry Hill Road, walking
out of HB Thompson to protest the bombing of Cambodia, going into the
city to the Fillmore for shows.  It was a time when everything was
changing fast and it somehow seemed safe anyway (blessings to all
those that didn't make it through).  My thanks to Syosset High School
to let us do what we needed to without making it into a prison, they
did a great job!  I could go on....
 I live in another great town now, so come visit Ithaca.
Lots of Love to all,
Larry

I went back recently and took a tour of Syosset. I will always remember Syosset, but the Syosset I grew up in no longer exists.

As for me, I am happily married with 2 children and all the good things that go with being a dad.

Comments: Hello John, you have a fantastic site with many interesting memories of Syosset.  I am a Greek Orphan who lived in Syosset from 1958 and went to South Grove Elementary School and Split Rock School.  In part 5, I noticed a 6th Grade School picture with a Mr. Parkes as the teacher from the year 1965--all you compatriots from that year, do you remember your classmates?--and while looking at it, I saw my photo.  My name then was, Billy Schwarz (since changed) and my adopted parents were, Charles and Catherine Schwarz from Muttontown/Syosset.  I also recognize a familiar name of Mark Steffens in the same photo and wonder if he or any one that may know his whereabouts can email me.  I am presently overseas.  Your website brought back many tearful memories of Syosset, some sad but mostly happy times; the sad part is that I never dreamed I would ever get this old!  But all our lives are as a vapour; here today and gone somewhere else tomorrow!  
Anyway, thank you so much for the sweet memories of childhood; I wish all you nostalgia lovers a very happy and blessed 2008!

Comments: What a great site.  I've learned more about the town I grew up in in a few hours than in the entire18 years I lived there.  The most exciting thing that I learned was that the house I grew up in was a part of summers field.  syossetscrapbook.freeservers.com/SYOSSETBALLCLUB.JPG.  The house in the background of that photo was my next door neighbor's house, placing the team in the foreground squarely in my backyard.  It's nothing short of mindblowing to see something like that after so many years, and having never known what was there all along.

I attended Berry Hill in the early to mid 80s, then south woods junior high (during the transition from "junior high" to "middle school") then SHS, ultimately graduating in 1991.  I lived on North street near Church street from my birth in 1973 until 1983, then on Rodeo drive from 1983 to 1991.  Any idea what Rodeo drive was before it was developed?  Also, I'd be interested in getting in touch with Tom Montalbano.  If I'm not mistaken he was one of my teachers in high school, and I'm certain Louise Montalbano was one of my teachers in High School as well.  My memory is failing as to what subjects they taught and I'm interested in refreshing my memory.

Thanks again for the amazing insight into Syosset! Great job!

PS:   Oh I almost forgot to mention my favorite photo from your site. The Seth + Pete graffiti photo blew my mind when I saw it on your site.  How many times I must have stared at it as a child, wondering how they burned themselves!  Just kidding.  I have vague recollections of "burnt" being a derogatory playground slur but the usage escapes me in my early middle age.  I think it was pretty localized, I haven't heard anyone use it since I was little anywhere else..

My brother, sister and I all attended school at Split Rock ES.  I have great memories of attending Ray Evan's 6th grade class, riding my schwinn bike on the school grounds, and swimming in the pond down the street.  6th Grade was one of my best years in public school ever!!!

In the 1970s, Syosset was very similar to some of today's small upstate towns.   We lived on Burtis La. in the late August Belmont home.  My Dad had this place - which was almost in ruin, restored.  I regret I didn't stay in touch with many of my 6th grade classmates, whom I still think of to this day.  However, I left under painful circumstances and could not connect.

I am now married and proud of my happy and healthy 11 year old boy.  We live in the Hudson Valley in a small town, which is starting to grow.  Farmers fields are sprouting mansions and drug store chains.

Thanks for a wonderful step back into history and for reliving fond memories.  You did a great job assembling these pictures and stories.

Since 2008 will be the 40 years anniversary of our graduation from Syosset HS, I’m thinking about trying to put together a reunion for our class.  If anyone’s interested in helping to organize one or just interested in possibly attending one in 2008 please let me know via my email address.  I look forward to reliving our old good times with the people who helped make my growing up in Syosset so enjoyable.

Time doesn't permit me to explore the site just now, but I'll be back.  A resident since 1981, I recently became involved in efforts to plan for Syosset's future.  I feel your website can play a vital role in this process by conveying the essence of Syosset, defining that "something" which we would seek to preserve and enhance.  Thank you for filling in the gaps for me, picking up where Tom Montalbano's book ends.

Comments: I am having so much fun going through the pictures and comments.  Born in Syosset in 1951 and moved into12 Texas Court, off Arizona Ave.  Walked to St. Edwards Church every Sunday, in single file, me and my three siblings, followed by our mother.  We stopped at the bakery on the way home.  Mom worked at IGA as a meat cutter.  Loved Pelican pond, I thought I was an Ice Queen!  Fell in a few times over thin ice, and walked home with frozen clothes.  Used to rent a bicycle built for two from Rent All, and Ann Walton and I would ride all over town, especially to the Bowling Alley on Jericho Turnpike.  Anyone know where she is?  In 1964 my family moved to Georgia, where we all still live.  We do  go back to refresh our northern accent and reminisce. I doubt of anyone remembers me, because I've been gone for so long, but if you do, please write.   Still in love with Syosset.

Comments: What a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this website.  I also see that my sister, Mary Kelly, also found it.  We lived across the street, at 84 Southwoods Road, having moved there from Hicksville.  I finished Berry Hill School in 1965, and attended Southwoods Jr. High for 1/2 year before moving to Scranton, PA in 1966.  The pictures brought back many fond memories... the parades in Hicksville (my sisters had a Kool-Aid stand at the corner of Old Country Road & Jerusalem Avenue for the 4-H Club during the parades), football games at SHS, dinners at the Viennese Coach, taking out dinner at Christiano's and going to Mass at St. Edward's.  Thank you for an enjoyable dose of nostalgia.  (I just sent a comment for the Scrapbook....and then continued looking further at your website...came upon the 2006 calendar.  The picture for October stopped me cold.  If that's a black Ford Galaxie 500 parked in the Town & Country parking lot, may be ours!)

Comments: I originally lived on Calvin Ave and graduated from SHS in '82.  I have great memories of growing up in Syosset.  I worked at Austin Drugs for 4 years and I remember one time we thought we saw Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley eating at Christiano's.  I remember our High School trip to England with the Chorus, we had the time of our lives.  I remember roller-skating at Pine Hollow Rink, Senior cut day at Syosset Woodbury Park.  I went to Split Rock and now it is gone.  My parents recently sold their home in Syosset to be closer to me and their 3 granddaughters.  The people that bought their house basically knocked it down, it is very sad.  Things change, but memories of Syosset will always be great!

Hello,
It’s nice to see a website devoted to my hometown Syosset   My name back then was Kathie Greenberg   I lived there from 1965 to 1972 with my family.  We lived at 6 The Mall which consisted of 4 houses in-between Jackson Avenue and Fieldstone Drive.  I attended Village Elementary School, and then Syosset Jr. High.   My family moved out in 1972 or 73.

Comments: Hey there.  I lived in Syosset from June of 1950 through high school (SHS class of '61) and loved every minute of it.  I grew up there as Eva P. Sweeny with my parents and sister Jane, having lived at 2936 Jackson Ave., 30 South Oyster Bay Road and 25 Meadow Lane.  My parents, Alice and Harry Sweeny, designed and built Lollipop Farm in 1950, and owned and ran that children's zoo until they closed it in 1967 and retired to Pennsylvania.  I left Syosset when I married and lived in Bay Shore until 1994 when we retired to Texas.

I have so many fond memories of Syosset, and am so happy to go through the Syosset Scrapbook every once in a while.  Best to all of you Syossetites!.

Comments: Lived in Syosset from 1949 until 1964 at 31 Raynham Drive ... cost $12,000 (wonder what it's worth now?)  Started out at Locust Grove with Hilda Brush as my teacher and graduated from SHS in 1964 (with Hilda Brush as an English teacher).  Moved to Florida in '64 and attended nursing school in Atlanta.

I have fond memories of Syosset, many a birthday at Lollipop Farm, worked as a Candy Striper when Syosset Hospital was built.  Before they built the hospital it was Pop's farm, with the freshest produce in town.  Drank many a malt at Weintraub's.  I remember when the IGA was built and the gas war at Jackson Avenue and Jericho Turnpike (10 cents a gallon)

I was in the SHS class of '64 that was in Washington, DC on our Senior trip when Kennedy was assassinated.  We were in Williamsburg when we got the terrible news.  Bad day.

Thanks for the pics and the walk down memory lane.  Sometimes I miss the good old days.

Comments: I have visited your site several times.  Although I have no direct links to Syosset, I have many fond memories of Galiza Stables, where I rode often as a child in the 50s.  I adored Mr. (Captain) Galiza.  He gave me a wonderful foundation for my riding skills.  Do you have any more information or pictures of him and his stable?   I do remember the fire.
Also, I recall riding on an adjoining trail with two other children, who I believe came from a neighboring estate-- Dorr and Torrance Watkins.   Are you familiar with such an estate?  Torrance became Torrance Fleischmann, an Olympic rider. 
Any other tidbits you could provide would be most welcome. 
What a lovely old town it was.

Comments: Talk about a blast from the past--this site is like getting hit by an atom bomb (remember going under our desks to avoid those things?)!  I was a Syossetarian from '49 to '73, when I went on a ski trip to Salt Lake and failed to return.

I am saddened to hear of the loss of Pamela Boslet Buskin, who I never knew, but must have crossed paths with several thousand times.  What an incredible effort she put into this scrapbook!

Did you know that Syosset means "the sound of the wind in the pines"?  That's what Judy Chaddick, formerly Vervoort, told me when we met at an Audubon Camp in Wyoming, several years ago.  How well I remember sleeping under those pines and hearing that sound, thanks to Troop 280 and the leadership of Frank Tenure.

Names familiar to me:  Locust Grove (kindergarten and Miss Hickey), St. Dominic (escaped in '65), Syosset-Woodbury Park (lifeguard, '65-'68), 20 Dorcas Ave ('49-70'), 7 Baylis Place ('70-73).  This site reminds me of the book Roots, as so many of mine are here.

Will hunt for photos, I'm sure I have some.

Update from my 5/02 message.  I can’t help but return to this site several times a year to view new pics, see who has sent messages and just plain general nostalgia.  Syosset was truly a great place to grow up.  Lived on Dawes Ave, Woodland Ave, Berry Hill Rd. and finally Meadowbrook Rd.  Graduated from Split Rock School '55, St. Dom’s ’59 and finally from Kyle & Moran’s class of ’59 thru ’65 (took a long time to get a passing grade).  Hats off to Pam & John for creating this site.  I will be sending you some old pics I recently came across.

Comments: Have been enjoying looking through your scrapbook for quite some time now—so much to see— and have just reached reading some of the remarks sent to your guestbook.  When we lived in Syosset (1957 - 1988) we resided on The Spur, a cul-da-sac.  Next door to us were two teenage boys and they were very friendly with a fellow by the name of Billy Joel.  They were involved in a group called "The Hassles" and drove a van with the name emblazoned on the sides which they parked in the driveway directly opposite our bedroom window.  We never really had problem with this situation, the only thing was every now and then we would hear footsteps running through our side and backyard.  We later discovered that Billy was seeing a girl (Elizabeth) who resided directly behind our house so this was a convenient shortcut.  As you probably know, Elizabeth Weber became Billy's wife.  Now we live in Las Vegas, but it seems everywhere we go we hear one of his great songs being piped in over a speaker— not to mention the radio stations we have on. ---- Little did we know at the time.....
This is just one of our many fond memories of Syosset.

Comments: Grew up on PRESTON LANE , the best street in Syosset. Gary O'Grady,  Mark Chernow , Robert  and Steven La Salle and Rich Serla. Susie Dannenfelser , Marilyn Murray , Mary Ellen Morea.  The parents were post war baby boomers who were buying their first houses under the GI bill and had a great deal of fun together raising their babies and seeking the american dream. We used to play in the lots behind Mahjong restaurant and then run into the restaurant to buy a bag of fortune cookies for 25 cents . Used to ride Bikes to the  shopping center to the Lady cake bake shop or hang  around the parking lot of Peter Yees.   Remember the  Finast Grocery store?   Remember the candy store/diner ?  Some days I wish I could just transport back to have  one more egg cream there. We all had bicycles and then cars and the best schools  and the best opportunity.   Syosset is 20 minutes from Oyster bay and 35 minutes from Jones Beach .  What could have been better!  Went to Syosset High School  and graduated in 1974.  I live in Philadelphia now and know so many people here who never left after high school, who married  their hs sweethearts and whose kids go to the same  schools they went to .  Wonder what it would have been like to do that .

Comments:Thank you for all the work that has gone into this wonderfully informative website! My mother-in-law, Isabella Harding (83 years) asked me to try to find any information on a Master Sergeant James McAuliffe. Last known living in Long Island, USA. They met during WW2, whilst he was in the UK and she was serving as a WREN. Within just 3 minutes of my search I came across details of the very gentleman ~ though sadly departed in 1965. I haven't told Isabella yet as I would dearly love to back up this information and answer the many questions that I know she will have. I hope that his family may be able to help me in this. Perhaps Maureen McAuliffe-Smith who provided the photograph of him and the letter sent to his mother. Thank you for reading this entry and I very much look forward to hearing from anyone who remembers Master Sergeant James McAuliffe. Kind regards Tracy

See 1 friend in the guestbook and recognize some other names. Syosset was a lot of fun as a kid, and probably good for me as a teen, though by then I preferred the city.

My dad built the house with his own hands in 1955-6, and raised my brother and I there. We used to feed apples to the horses in Sparks' fields when they came over to the white fence, walked to Split Rock ES every day from K-5 (who else had Mrs. Devine in Kindergarten?) then rode the bus to Southwoods JHS for 6-8. Does anyone else remember Mr. Stengel? Had him in 5th and 6th grade, my first male teacher! Then went to Chaminade HS, graduating in 69. I saw the emails from Mike Sheedy here. I went to elem. school with his brother Tim and lived across School House lane from the Sheedys. What a great time we had playing in that wonderfully big house! Also saw a note here from Karen Katzman -- her dad wrote me a recommendation for my appointment to West Point and her sister Meg was on our JHS bus, as I recall. So many good friends at Split

I have so many wonderful memories of growing up in Syosset. We lived across the woods from the Fisher boys and were always at each others homes. I would love to hear from anyone out there:0)

I then went to Baylis and HBT. Did anyone have Mr. Frazier? Could that guy draw! Anyway, We moved to a small town in Michigan just like Syosset used to be, (in 1977) and I have been here since. I have still kept in touch with a few people but would like to hear from more. Keep up the awesome website, the pictures are great. I'll be back :)

Don't remember much of Lollipop Farm- please jog my confused brain..in my memory it changed to Buy Rite. Certainly Wetsons, Carvel and On Parade fill out happy eating memories. If memory serves me, there was also an A and P in nearby Plainview, a WT Grant, A SuperX in Syosset along with a Sweet Shop, Seaosset Aquarium, Dairy Barn and Syosset Shoes. I remember the days when Geico was not there and there was only a big farm (Meyer's Farmstand?) in the area, where we picked out our pumpkins for Halloween. I rode horses at the Woodland Equestrian School on Woodbury road and ate too much candy at Sam's off Woodbury road near Baylis school.

Went to Locust Grove, South Grove, Woodbury and finally the new High School. Unfortunately, did not have the opportunity to graduate with the "first" class. Syosset was a wonderful place to grow up in. After I married, I lived in Lake Ronkonkoma, and Smithtown before moving to Morristown, NJ. One of my closet friends in HS was Mary Ann Yulfo. Would love to hear from any old classmates.

High school was a choice of Hicksville or Oyster Bay High School. I chose Oyster Bay and graduated in 1955.I have may visions of Syosset,like for instance where many old timers learned to fly at an old country airport on the south side of Jericho Turnpike, now an industrial park.Still see Syosset often since I now live about 22 miles away.

Behind the old Syosset Movie Theatre was our backyard, although we had some forest privacy. Very fond memories of Syosset; Lollipop Farm, Carvel, my brother Frank worked at Wetsons Hamburger. What about Rocky's Candy Store and Bob's Bike Shop! Remember them? (near Jericho Turnpike and Jackson Avenue) The Syosset-Woodbury Park, Fox Hollow Inn, Vienese Coach, and so on. I graduated from Syosset High in 1972 and were fond of most of my teachers. My entire family is still going strong thank God. The A&P, Christiano's, Kyle and Moran's (The Syosset Inn) So many places to go and had so much fun. I'd like to thank Pamela and John for a joyous journey down memory lane.

I graduated in 63 and live in Huntington,Syosset has become a little congested and lost some of its charm, but not in my memories.I worked at the Syosset Sweet Shop after school making ice cream sodas and walked there on the railroad tracks every day, also worked at Bohack & IGA in Syosset after school for $1.00 per hr,thats when a hamberger at the Syosset Dinner cost .25 cents and Wetsons on Jericho sold hamgergers for .15 cents.I will always love Syosset and my years at Syosset High. I look forward to hearing from some of my classmates, see you at the reunion in August.

Whipped out my year book to check some of the previous visitors and found some of my old classmates. I married John (from Maspeth, Queens, NY) in '68 and we moved to sunny Florida in January 1971. We've been here every since then. We have two daughters, Michelle (32 years old) and Christine (29 years old). No grandchildren, but two great son-in-laws. Didn't keep up with reunions and such, and now I'm sorry I didn't. Guess I missed some good times. Oh well! If anyone in Class of '65, '66 or '67 remembers me, let me here from you. Thanks for the GREAT website!

I grew up on Woodbury Farms (the Tinker estate) with my three brothers - ice skating and shooting bullfrogs at "Tinker's Pond". Spent summers at the beach!

Comments:Truly enjoyed viewing the guest book and the pictures. Thank you for a trip down memory lane, and fond memories they are. As an educator and parent of three daughters I truly appreciate, now, the wonderful education that Syosset schools provided (graduate 1979.) It was with mixed emotions that I showed my daughters the Syosset I knew as I grew up there (1964-1987). How different it looks today. My parents will be moving after living in Syosset for almost 40 years and relocating to Connecticut to be closer me, my sister Laura ('85) who lives in New Hampshire, my brother Brian and his wife Margaret Sacco ('82) who live in Brewster, NY. My brothers Stephen ('81) and Sean ('96) still remain on Long Island. Syosset will always live in the hearts of all the De Garay family members that called Syosset home for so many years. Hello to all our current relocated Syosset friends and friends of the past.

We looked at our house one rainy afternoon during an open house, because my husband used to ride by on his bike,on his way to Split Rock School. We ended up buying it. He also took the school sign the night before they tore down the school. After going thru your site I can see why so many residents are upset that they want to change the name of SHS sports teams from the Braves. WE have a history with it.

I didn't know the old Syosset, but I was there for Lollypop Farm, the post office moving around, the "old library", the destruction of the horse stables and the general modernization of Syosset. I really loved the time I grew up here, skating on Pelican Pond, walking downtown to the sweetshop barefoot, taking the bus to the malls, the parades on Memorial Day, being able to "walk to the movies", etc. I will start looking for anything I can donate to your site.

We lived next to Lolipop Farm, but never set foot in it. I think going over to the sandlot on Hillside Rd and playing 2 on 2 baseball or football was more our style. Went to Village school and remember a wonderful teacher named Mrs. Bloomrosen. Then Southwoods...left in 1973 for florida, next thing you know, I did 22 years in the USCG. Ended up in Ireland, but never forgot about Syosset. Seems like a sweet dream.

I left L.I. in 1974 I am now retired in Florida with all the other New Yorkers. I enjoyed the site very much it reminded me of people and places I had not thought of in ages. Good Job!

Comments:Well-done! Nice walk down Memory Lane. Currently live in Louisville, KY-spent my childhood years in Syosset at 27 Underhill Ave, not far from So. Oyster Bay Rd. There was one great teacher I remember from A. P. W. Ele, Sch.-Seymore Grossman. He was truly a credit to his profession, and a humanitarian and patriot to boot-a great inspiration to many.

From '59-'62 important places to me were: Galiza's Stables, the Art Department, Folk Music Club, Sparks Woods, (they still lived there then; I used to run into them on horseback), and where was that indoor carousel in the area? Favorite teachers were Dom O'Driscoll, who alas, I see has passed away, Mrs. Kidder, Jon Black, and before him Mr, Price. Dear heaven I feel so old! Now running an equestrian business in Western Mass. I have a 35 year old son and daughter in law, and 2 stepsons, 24 and 23. Enjoying these memories!

I was living in North Floral Park at the time. When I was seeking employment as a teacher, he suggested I apply to Syosset schools. It was the beginning of my love for this great town. That was in 1960. I taught here for three years at Willets School. I left to marry my husband Nick who was then in the army. When we were looking for our second home I insisted on finding one in Syosset. We were very fortunate to find a lovely new home built by Tony Coconato. We have lived here for 35 years. Our four children,Camille, Terri, Joseph, and Cathi were raised here . I returned to full-time teaching in 1981 and recently retired after 22 years . I enjoy running into the children and parents I had the pleasure of working with. I would really love to hear from any of my former students who remember me

We lived on Colony Lane, very close to South Grove school, you could see the school from my house! Then we moved to Plainview and we loved there until moving to East Northport in 1979. My parents still live there. I go back to visit whenever I can. I was last there in May of 2001. I always spend a few hours in Syosset, visiting my old haunts: Syosset-Woodbury park, Jackson Ave, the house on Colony Lane, Jericho Turnpike, etc...I love that area and miss it a lot!

Many of the guys who worked there as projectionists I met many years later and they still talk with fond memories of running these epic multi-projector movies.

Comments:My family moved to Syosset in 1961, I was three years old and my brother was 5. We attended Berry Hill Elementary School, South Woods Jr. High School, and Syosset High School. We were both active in little league and school sports and belonged to Boy Scout troop 112. I remember the monthly Boy Scout meetings in the gymnasium of Split Rock School. I remember camping at the Bruce Estate, and several of the other estates that still remained in the late sixties and early seventies. I have clear memories of playing in the abandon Sparks mansion with the empty swimming pool and horse stables. I’ll never forget the broken elevator. There was a log cabin that probably belonged to the Sparks Estate; we played in it for endless hours. I have lived in Milwaukee Wisconsin since 1991 and annually visit family and friends in Syosset. I met my wife, Debbie, here in Milwaukee and we have a daughter named Elizabeth.

I went to Syosset High School from 1965-1969 leaving for Boston to go to school. I returned to Huntington, L.I. to live for two years in 1977 to 1979 leaving again for Boston where I lived through 1991. I moved to Mystic Connecticut and now live in Potomac, Maryland with my wife and children. I may soon move back to the Boston Area. I always remember where we all grew up. We used to do a little sailing in Cold Spring Harbor or skipping school to go to the City. We probably got the best public education available. It has served us all well. I have fond childhood memories of summer days and lots of friends in Syosset. Your pictures remind me of those days in the 60s and the warmth we all had for one another. Syosset could not have been a better place to live. I think we all are remembering how it really is.

Comments:What a great site! So many memories. Tony lived in Syosset from 1955 till we got married (at St Edwards Church) in 1966 and I moved to Woodbury in 1960 & lived there till we got married. Tony graduated SHS in 1961 and I, in 1964. We lived in East Northport till 1973, when we moved to Florida. We have a daughter (33) and a son (30) and 3 grandchildren. We've been up to LI several times and have brought the kids out to see where we got all our happy memories & stories. Now our son and his wife live in NY, so we get up there alot more often. Thanks so much for all your hard work! We love "swingin' down memory lane". Love to hear from old friends! E-mail us! Laurie (Koch) & Tony Misiano

Comments:This site is so special and close to my heart for reasons only God and a few of the "angels" from the 40th reuion are aware. I spent the best years of my life walking the streets and potato fields of Syosset and even remember the old original library near the railroad tracks in town. Muttontown Rd. and pickles were my favorite things back in a time when we were all so innocent and believed in the tooth fairy. One thing I still believe in is Syosset. I still can't get those wonderful memories out of my head and as strange as it may seem, I beleive all of us that grew up there are possessed by it's magical qualities. Thank-you so much for providing this site. My family still lives there...Berryhill Rd., sister, neices, grand-neices....and someday I will return. AMF Washingtonville,NY

My father was leader of boy scout troop 280 and was on the syosset school board that planned the first high school - prior to that, syosset kids went to hs in oyster bay. I remember the steam trains, all the woods and farm fields vividly. I lived on Wointhrop avenue off of south oyster bay rd. and could see lollypop farm from my front yard.

Comments:Great site. I served as a member of the Syosset Fire Department (Engine Company 5)from 1983 to 1994. I was also a member of the Nightraiders drill team and the softball team. I left Syosset with my new bride of 2 weeks (Christine Pinelli from Huntington) at the end of November, 1994 for Melbourne, FL. My wife and I have 3 children (Andrew 5, Jeremy 3 and Kalianne 2). Kali was adopted from Cambodia in 2000. I would like to say what a priveledge is was to serve in the Syosset Fire Department.

Comments:My brother, Tony, just emailed me this scrapbook. What a wonderful idea! We moved to Syosset in 1954. Our Dad, Dr. Oliveri, had his dental office in our house on the corner of Colony Lane and Miller Place. We watched the LIE being built, and went sledding down the slopes before it opened. I graduated in '66, and after graduating from Adelphi in '70 I married fellow Syosset classmate Joe Spence. His career in the Navy brought us to Virginia Beach, where we've lived for the last 20 years. O
