c Alexis: EDC, It depends what kind of music he was playing and he may at his age lost his memory a little bit. Anyone that know soul music, R&B, knows about the Rockhead's Paradise. A lot of good shows there in the 60's 70's.....

in response to Rufus Rockhead Street

Ernie K.: Hi All, I was stationed at PAFB, 380 GHS Sq. from 1969-72. Work in In-and-out processing and project transition. Do remember Brodis, Brothers 5, Beas, Lee's Fox Hill Tavern (played on their pool team), Swinging Turtle (you bet your sweet ass!) and the Royal Savage Inn. Anyone...

Rick: Yo, I moved long ago but return often. you out of towners, beware !!!!!!!!!!! The place is constantly changing. Only a fool would want to live in East Brooklyn. White and moving near Bed-Sty, bushwick, good luck. All I'll say is you're really pushing your luck.

Rick: That stretch of the Belt Pkwy. has seen lots of dead folks there also/

in response to A Sign of Past Times?

Rick: Great to see something positive in my old turf. I used to walk from Tapscott and Dumont to Pitkin and Stone Aves. No problem for a nine year old in 1960, even at night, but things changed very rapidly shortly after.

in response to Brownsville Bike/Record Shop

Rick: I used to live near there, in Brownsville. Pretty scary area by the late 60's. I went that way going from East New York back to East Flatbush, by train and bus.

in response to The Other End of the Tunnel
