Homage To The People Who Made It All Happen

Boardwalk at Beach 38th St. and Sprayview Ave: Our house was immediately off the Boardwalk on the right corner of the photo.

This is so wild. This is the first blog I ever wrote and it’s one that I have a true passion for.

To my family

I have found that most of us have no true idea where we came from and who we came from. As I have said this whole blog began with me discovering that my great grandparents their other children. Were here in america and died here and I know nothing of their lives or times , nor where they all are buried. This is how my quest began.

I hope you enjoy all that has been discovered,And all that is remembered.

Hello world!

There once was a place called Edgemere, Long Island. My goal with this blog is to capture as many memories from the people that called Edgemere a part of their lives, along with as many photos of the streets and their many views; from Edgemere Ave. and all its stores and stories, to the vendors on the boardwalk and their truly amazing stories, and to all the summer boarders who took the town over for those few summer months. And most of all, to the families like mine who had one of those great old big houses for all those summer folks and city folks to rent for the summer. Our house was one house from the boardwalk on Beach 38th street and Sprayview Avenue. I’m looking forward to hearing from all who loved Edgemere.
