Twenty-five Forgotten Fans turned out on a brilliant June 14th for the 92nd ForgottenTour in Woodhaven, Queens, the first time FNY had toured in the district. There was plenty to engage tourgoers…
The tour met at the former Cross Bay Theatre, which closed in 2005 and became a Modell’s Sporting Goods, the fate of a number of area theaters.
The Wyckoff apartment house, 93rd Street and 95th Avenue, formerly sported an onion dome and was originally the offices of the Woodhaven Bank.
This clock tower at Atlantic Avenue and 92nd Street was the centerpiece of the Lalance and Grosjean kitchenware factory.
This house on Forest Parkway was where Betty Smith was living when she wrote the classic “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.”
The Forest Park Carousel was originally built in 1903 and was installed in Forest Park in 1971, and has been refurbished recently.
Neir’s Tavern, 78th Street and 88th Avenue, is the descendant of a bar servicing customers of the long-vanished Union Course racetrack beginning in 1829. Mae West got her career started here.
