Explore Hamburger Train, Queens Blvd, and more!

My Favorite Restaurant w/mom: the Hamburger Train on Queens Blvd, with a counter RR train that delivered your food! My mom & I were eating there when Kennedy was assasinated in Nov. 1963; we heard it on the radio, and walked out onto a totally silent street...

The perfume I always associate with my mom, as she gave me a small bottle of it on my 16th birthday- & it's still my favorite perfume, too!

Best advice mom gave me: "being a soldier (AND shooting, fishing, & golf) is the most fun you can have with your clothes on". All true!

Mom's favorite desert- which we made often- was old-fashioned "boil to the soft-ball stage" fudge, from the Settlement Cook Book! If we cooked it too long it would harden into a chocolate rock the pot, & if we didn't cook it long enough we had Fudge Soup! But it was always delicious & a lot of fun!

The gorgeous 1938 Howard Johnson's of my childhood with mom in Queens, NY! The parking lot turned into a reservoir every time it rained, and she'd always lose the brakes of my grandma's 1957 Chevy driving through it! LOL
