mary jean graham: 7th Jan 2010 - 22:29 GMT

i grew up at 3537 n. kip st. i moved away after graduating from little flower highschool 1970. i loved living on kip st in kensington. it was a safe and happy time. i have fond memories of christmas holidays, halloween , when we would go out on soap night and get everyones cars. and mischef night doing harmless pranks in the neighborhood. i loved to take the elevated at k and a to center city to visit Wanamakers, you could spend the who day in that store, it was like a city. my best friends, margie seiger, and re re gatter to always visit the dairy bar for our fix of ice cream. what a innocent and wonderful time.

mary jean graham: 7th Jan 2010 - 22:32 GMT

me again , mary graham, does anyone know of re re gatter, her real name was marie gatter her dad was a fire chief, she too lived two houses down from me on the 3500 block of kip i lived at 3537. would love to locate her again. she didn't go to little flower, she went to the public high, can't remember it's name.

joe bob: 16th Jan 2010 - 00:59 GMT

wow.i grew up in kensington @D and Cambria. i hung out @ C and Somerset,Hissy playground,Jasper and Heartlane and Front and Cumberland.I remember sneaking smokes and and drinking Ballintine @ the railroad off of Rosehill St, going under the fireplug, playing in the alleys,riding the El,jumping off the White bridge on the moveing coke cars,getting into fistfights and laughing about it laterthey were good times, but that was the 50s and early 60s.the war came ,factories closed,solid families moved to Juniata,Mayfair,Bristol and the Greater Northeast because they had jobs and money leaving behind those not so fortunate.The color barrier was broke @ Front st and the neighborhood then had an influx of more people that also had it bad.It all tured to shit.But look @theBadlands it is now called Northern Liberies and it cost about $400k for a house.If people just pulled together instead of trying to fuck over each other the hood could become a place to be proud of.

I grew up at Front and Somerset in the heart of Kensington in the 60s and 70s with Jackie OConnor ,Tim Sinese and Joe Macanany.We were bad kids at times,but not like the kids today who have no regard fur humam life.I recently went back to visit, what shame it looks more like a third world country then a neighborhood

Just happened on this site, really great. Lived at Front & Dauphin, '42 to '63 when I got married. Went to St. Bonnie's & Hallahan. Best friend, Lee, next door went to Little Flower. After a while you didn't even hear the rumble of the El. Remember the Howard & the Kent, dances at Wagner's & Boulevard Ballroom. Friday night cones at John's ice cream shop, ice cream sodas at Pop's across from the park. Would love to find anyone from that neighborhood.

John P: 9th Aug 2010 - 21:55 GMT

linda sibilla: 9th Nov 2010 - 01:04 GMT

went to ascension school 1954, lived on East Willard, anyone remember the McGlynns. Eileen was my best friend in Grammar School. I agree with the posts growing up in the 50s, we had a great time and neighors took care of neighbors. It was a hard working neighborhood. Irish and Italians. I lived with my grandparents who came from Italy. I'm in New Orleans now and still have fond memories, especially Sister Rose Therese.

If you found out why they knocked the houses and if you know a man who might of lived there named JOHN KROHN, feel free to get back to me on here.

for all those people who said they are from kensington and how it has turned out to be so terrible. alot of you seem to have been successful which is awesome, but how come you dont try to go back and help change something. maybe not go and stay because you left for a reason, but contributing can always help.

Went to KHS which was an all girls school back then in the 50s. My boyfriend at that time went to Mastbaum. He and his family lived on the 2300 blk. of Collins Street. They ran an Auto Repair Shop Called "Ivin's Garage. Anyone know of it?

kenzo forever : 12th Aug 2011 - 16:03 GMT

I was born and raised in kensington I still live here with my husband and children.We chose not to leave we both work and are very involved in are childrens school and interests.The neighborhood has changed and yes we do miss the old kensington.This site is bringing back memories but there are still many good people here just trying to get by just like the old days.Just like the old days if you are from the neighborhood people dont bother you.As for the drugs yes it is horrible alot worse then the old days but I see so many people coming from the suburbs to buy the drugs and any man who lives in kensington knows not to touch the hookers from here once again it is the people from the burbs.So yes we see the drugs down here I dont agree with what they do but they dont hide it either.So for all the people who decided to get out and not stay and fight for the neighborhood you loved so much and miss tell your friends and neighbors from the burbs stop coming to kensington to score and maybe the problem wont be as bad.

WHAT DO YOU DO ABOUT THE DRUG DEALERS. NO DRUG DEALERS NO BURB TRAFFIC.

kenzo forever : 14th Aug 2011 - 19:31 GMT

Think about the drug dealers this way.If the drug dealers were a store and nobody shopped there the store would go out of buisness.My problem is people who once lived here and people from the burbs putting Kensington down all the time what a dump it is and that nothing but scum live here.Thats wrong when these same people are part of the problem coming down here buying drugs being with the hookers taking god knows what back to your poor wife and kids to your nice safe neighborhood and calling us scum.How about taliking about know wonder the kids in kensington are the way they are look where they live look at what they see. Guess whos keeping the dealers in buisness your sweet burb kids who are doing so well in school how proud the parents well i got news for you right now i see them here everytime they want to party but yet are kids down here are the problem .My kids live here see it day after day and they dont want no parts of turning to the lifestyle they see where it could lead .I know where my kids are right know do you oh thats right they are at the library .HA HA

JP : 15th Aug 2011 - 01:48 GMT

SOUNDS LIKE YOUR THE ONE THROWINGS SLURS AT THE BURBS. NOT ALL THE BUYERS ARE FROM THE BURBS. THE DEALERS LIVE IN KENSO,OH NO MAYBE THERE LIKE STORE OWNERS MAYBE THEY COMMUTE OPEN THERE STORES IN THE DAY TIME AND GO HOME TO THE BURBS AT NITE. THE HOOKERS TO THEY LIVE IN THE BURBS TO. THEY TRAVEL TO KENSO FOR THE BIG MONEY. I LIVED IN KENSO UNTILL I WAS 21 WHEN I GUESS SOME ONE FROM THE BURBS BROKE IN MY HOUSE AT NITE WHILE MY FAMILY WAS SLEPPING. AND THEN PUT THE STOLEN STUFF IN MY CAR AND AND DROVE OFF,I GUESS THEY NEEDED A RIDE BACK TO THE BURBS. I AM VERY PROUD OF BEING RAISED IN KENSO. IAM GLAD I DIDNT STAY LONG ENOUGHT TO LET THE NEIGBORHOOD,NO THE DRUGS MAKE ME SO BITTER.

kenzo forever : 15th Aug 2011 - 12:54 GMT

Im not bitter JP.Im mad that people are always judging us like if you live in kesington you must be poor or trash or a criminal.I stayed because because this is my home i have many friends here who are hard working honest people.you are coming after me but if you look at some of the past post on this site some of these post are downing the people who still live here just defending myself.There is good and bad everywhere im just saying to these people that the people who are doing wrong down here are what they are they dont try to hide it.You cant have it both ways some people want to live in the burbs act like they are angels and come down here and be the devil.Then talk trash about us.You said at one time you lived here be honest would you pick up one of them hookers and how many cars did you see that didnt belong buying drugs.they did a john sting down here all the johns got put in the paper not one of them were from here guess where they were from.As for the hookers most of them will tell you yes they live here now but a good amount of them lived in the burbs good kids got hooked on drugs and started selling themselves to support the lifestyle.I worked at a store down here and would hear them talking.The dealers are from here not going to deny that but you were right in some ways the corner dealers live here but the main suppliers do you think they live here guess again.Me and my husband go to work every day raise our kids right own are home and then i have to put up with being called trash because of where i choose to live.Im not saying everybody in the burbs are bad or talking trash this is just for the people who have alot to say but dont want to look in the mirror.

JP : 18th Aug 2011 - 00:02 GMT

Iam not coming after you. I dont think kenso is the only area with your promlems. chester,camden,darby,bristol all over. I lived in kenso in the 60s and 70s. I went to sheppard school. In my kindergarden picture out of 15 boys 7 of them are dead from drugs first one was 15 years old.[Istill have the pic i will have get it out and check] Iam very proud of being raised in kenso, by the way i was 23 when i moved out. after they broke into my house i had to think of my family. I did not want my childen living like prisoners in there own home.My family lived on 2900 mutter st. they had to board up there windows and put iron bars on there back doors to kept out the junkies. I had friends killed,stabed on there own front steps.When i lived there it was a different world. the burbs to us was mayfair,juniata,the far northeast. We had people come down from those areas and didnt like us. they were the cops they would come into kenso with a attitude and beat the crap of you. I was drinking when i was 18 if you could go to veitnam and carry a gun you should be able to drink. the cops didnt agree they found you drinking you were in trouble even worst if they were highway cops.And as for your question about picking up hookers i would no sooner pick up a hooker then i would pick up a needle. To this this very day if some one talks about kenso i tell them how great it was. We have people come out to the burbs all the time buying drugs and killing people. it is all over. I could go on all nite about kenso to much to say to mny memories. I hope you and you family stay well. And i never put anybody down i was raised by good parents.

kenzo forever : 18th Aug 2011 - 20:23 GMT

I understand jp you have to do what is best for your family.I live on a pretty good block its small we all look out for each other and keep the block clean in all ways if you know what i mean.Living down here has its benifits for my kids seeing what they see they dont want no part of the drugs sort of like a scared straight program.Sorry to hear your house got broken into.Alot of the kids i grew up with met the same fate as your friends.I didnt mean you were putting kensington down just some post in here i read got me upset..you know what they say cant judge a book by its cover.Im not going to deny it some blocks down here really bad i wont even walk down them.I guess people just get tired and give up the fight and the block turns.My block reminds me of kensington back in the day parents sit out watch the kids kids play all night during the summer neighbors sit out talk to each other block parties bbqs.You left because thats what you thought was best for your family i get it and respect that I decided to stay its my home im not going to leave because a few bad apples want to spoil the bunch.take care jp.

Fishtowner: 24th Mar 2012 - 07:40 GMT

Growing up at Dauphin and Memphis, 10yrs old in 1978, Mom would pack all the kids, little sister in stroller, cousins and an Aunt or 2. We would walk from Dauphin & Memphis to Kensington Ave, turn right and hit all the good spots until Allegheny Ave, then cross over and shop all the way back to Dauphin and go home. Kellys corner was a favorite and American Pants Co??? May be wrong about exact name but I remember begging my mom to buy me Jordache Jeans, Gloria Vanderbilts or Baranellis (spelling?) from there. We would have a ball and the avenue was crowded with families doing the same thing, just out for the day, buying a little something and we'd eat water ice and soft pretzels on the way home. Those were the days when you were 10,11, or 12 and you got soo excited that you just got a couple of new patches to sew onto your jean jacket. Keep on Truckin!!!

Kathie, April 8, 2012: 9th Apr 2012 - 18:08 GMT

I haven't been back but I tell my sons all about where I grew up poor but happy. Kensington: Sat afternoons walking to confession at 4:00, church on Sun. morning 9:00 Visitation, getting beat by a bunch of frustrated nuns. My Dad still lived down there and died a few years ago, an old Irish diehart, we had the mass at Visitation, THEY SAID THE WHOLE MASS IN SPANISH? NO OFFENSE SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE SPANISH AND LATINO, BUT WE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND A WORD, DO YOU THINK THEY COULD HAVE ASKED US???? My best friend at school was Lorraine Nick, Vicky Gizzi, Darlene. My wonderful neighbors Claire Walker, Mickey, Tracy and Kelly who I babysat, Beverly Fleckenstein with her very large family on Coral Street, Rose Mullaney, Kathy Powell, who was my best friend till we moved away, Robert McNichols the love of my life and first kiss, Kensington HS grounds to play ball. Mary Lou O'Rourke, snob and next store neighbor Nancy, snob, parents had money so we weren't good enough, Joann Cubbins, Sergeant street, great friend, parents didn't like poor people. Sharon Hale, fabulous friend, never saw her after we moved. Ed's corner, hung out, and we weren't trouble. Hazzard street where I grew up next to a bar, no inside running water upstairs, washed in a basin at the kitchen sink, went to an out house in the yard, no one ever knew. Can't go on.. it was a hell of a trip...now it's like shit. Got my Mom and Sister out .... I feel sorry for all the Irish, Polish, German and old people who have lived there all their lives have no money saved and have no where to go.... they just wait to see when someone will jump them on the streets or break in their house and kill them for their $3.00

Mary Jean Graham: I'm related to the Gatters because Helen Gatter was my great grandmother, who married my great-grandfather Francis (Frank) W. Garstkiewicz. I could probably assist with some research - email me @ bethgars@hotmail.com

Editor: I love the irony of your request that folks refrain from "nostalgia" - because whether you visited Kensington in a kind-hearted fit of volunteerism or some misguided participation in "ghetto" tourism, the comments here actually provide some great insight into what Kensington is about. True, too much reminiscing, and you're just sitting there stuck on the stoop (which is Kensingon's problem). But there really are some great stories ...

BobJ: 29th Jun 2012 - 02:20 GMT

I stumbled on this site awhile back. It was fun reading about the old neighborhood. Those of us from the old days lived a different life than anybody today can understand. We lived in a very tough place and knew we had people that would always watch out for us and we watched out for them. I remember a time when some car theives were being chased by the cops and turned done Howard street and wrecked the stolen car and jumped out to run. They weren't from the neighborhood so they got as far as the corner where H&C folks snatched them up and held them for the cops. You didn't come into our area and cause trouble, it wouldn't go your way. Kinda a warm feeling. That doesn't exist anymore.
