First I just want to say I was Eltingville kid....you know even today when you here someone talk about Tottenville or run into someone from Tottenville a flood of memories come back. I remember back in the 50s/early 60s we took train to Tottenville (last stop) get on boat to Perth Amboy do some shopping than back to Tottenville or go to movies on Main Street.
When I started high school the place to be than was The Hut on Amboy Road or just hang out at the beach on Surf Avenue or The Pavilion at end of Hylan blvd.
Today I live in Jersey, every once in a while ill ride to Tottenville and just walk around and take in what was and it puts a smile on my face and I'm back in time.
