I always talk about growing up in Philly and especially Juniata Park. It was a great place. Being on this site and reading about others and their experiences brings back a great time in my life. I think the experience of growing up in such a great neighborhood defines us all. Everybody have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., already discussed the possibility of a buy-back law for his state, but he made clear it would be a forced buyback.........................it has already begun...arm yourselves...its a good day to die for freedom.....or have we become so complacent and apathetic we have forgotten...the price of freedom is blood...Boog..IN GOD WE TRUST

Your all helping bring back so many wonderful memories... How about the Saturday Matinee at the Midway and IRIS movies? Good old Philly pretzels which I still order from south Philly. New Years Eve was a trip,going from house to house, of course our parents seemed extremely happy and acting a little weird? You knew everyone on your block and we always felt safe and protected.

But what I enjoyed the most was standing outside my door at night and it was so calm after a new snow fall, and as a car drove by breaking the silence. It was so peaceful. We all had decorations up and I was honored to be the artist at our house with the snow foam doing designs on the windows, which i would go crazy.
There will never be another Juniata and I truly miss the people, times and place that it once was.

Holy * * *, Den do you remember hopping cars on Bristol st next to the mackley it would ice up real nice you could ride a couple blocks or how bout bombing the P bus and cars with snowballs. People would stop and howler and we would bomb them somemore! It was great we were nuts, or how about how the nut cracker would freeze up right down the middle and you could slid down the ice standing up no sled required or on the side of the new school at H.I. next to bristol st that would ice up in a sheet of ice the Nunns would have a fit because would and run and slid on the ice. We had alot of fun! Merry Cristmas and happy New years Mike Creedon and Family.

How many of you remember putting baseball cards on bike wheels to get those effects, or making go-carts with old milk crates and roller skates? How about playing bottle caps or bells-out,(my favorite), stick ball, flying kites at Juniata Park, or playing in the old manufacturing plant that sat off of Castor and Erie ave.? Amazing we didn't kill ourselves while exploring those old places! Attempting to walk on the Juniata creek when it froze up,(crazy).
Keep the memories going...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
