I heard a bit of background noise so I had to mute some folks on my end but please feel free to unmute yourself to join the conversation!
Yes! We would walk down Kinderkamack to ride on the whirligig!
The burgers cost $0.29 each when we went (about 1962).
The A&P was in existence there through at least 1968 or so. (My best friend worked there when he was in high school. I’m dating myself!)
Strumph’s Pharmacy was an anchor store in the strip mail on Kinderkamack between Jefferson Ave and Monroe. I believe the family owned that strip and collected the rent every week, in cash.
Cheshire Cat, the restaurant when I knew it was located on Forest Ave northbound near Rt 4. Was replaced by a corporate building I believe.
I lived next door to Mickey in 1962 and babysat his four boys several times!
