    I lived across the street from Hearns not too many people my age remember Hearns. When we lived there it was mostly American’s not too many Puerto Ricans in that neighborhood. My mom would take us during Christmas time to see Santa. We also got a doll from Santa and my brother got a car. Good memories.

    Hearn’s was a huge department store located at the corner of 3rd ave and 149st if I remember correctly it had 4 floors and a bargain basement. huge toy department and women’s clothing. it went out of business in the early 60’s it was a real kid friendly place with a great hot pretzel vender in the lobby

    I remember my mother taking my sister and I to shop in Hearn’s. There was a bakery in the entrance that had the most delicious italian cookies and desserts (green pistachio feathers, pretzel shaped butter, gingerboys with chocolate in betweenstars with jelly centers, vanilla with sprinkles, and the rainbow marzipan covered in chocolate cakes!! Mom would promise to get cookies on the way out if we behaved!!!
