Like "Leave it to Beaver." My brother is Louie Abramowitz. I have lived in Tampa FL for 21 years, with my wife of 40 years. I've recently reconnected with a few Laureltonians and that was lots of fun. Back in Laurelton it was Avolio and I lived at137-08 233 St. We had backyard Bar BQ's with lots of lighter fluid.

I still have the 4th grade picture and remember everyone in the class. Who could forget being able to walk to and from school, the movies, the library (and Miss Rand's storytelling), Colony cards, Carmine's, the kosher deli where we had Mrs. I attended Andrew Jackson HS from Sept 1962 to June 1965. I have three younger brothers Richard, Louis and Harry. My friend Jessica lived around the corner from me on 139th Street if I am correct. He attended the University of Illinois and studied to be a veterinarian (animal Doctor). The school I work in was built in '29 and is an exact duplicate of Jackson. Mike Nussbaum and I went with the dumb kids to PS 147 and then we all met up again in Jackson. lol My vocation and avocation is beautiful dentistry (so much for being a dumb kid). I have an older brother Steve (AJHS grad 1965) and a younger brother Scott (moved from Laurelton 1971). from 1959-1972; attended PS 132 for 5th & 6th grades (Mrs. I am still best friends with Iris (Krichefsky) Schachter and Harvey Schachter.

I own a Management Consulting firm based on Transformative Learning principles and ontological coaching. We're all graduates of this "sickness" called Laurelton - at least that's what my wife calls it. Just because I have an Illinois vanity license plate which says "Laurelton" and still maintain Laurelton friends? Some of my best years, memories and friends start from the time I moved to Laurelton as an incoming freshman at AJHS. Several Laurelton and AJHS reunions over the years (in NY and Fla.), have kept the flame burning as I catch up with old friends and memories. In the summer we sold lemonade on Merrick Road, and once we dug up the backyard for a mini golf course, and charged admission to play. Rand, the ever-patient children's librarian on 225th St.
I am a dentist and I have 2 grown daughters and 5 grandchildren. I have been married for 45 years to my wife, Carole. I lived on 228th Street until 1969 when I married and moved to New Jersey. I've reconnected with two Laurelton friends right here in Wellington. I went to the Junior High on Springfield Blvd, I think the number is 59, for the 9th grade. Some of the people I knew ( can't remember some last names ) were Yvette, Wilma, Eileen Arshansky, Lynette Brown, Marcia or Marsha Eisenberg (from Rosedale). I was also friends with a guy named Howard Levine who lived on the same street as me. I went to PS 176 and then the school system divided kids into the dumb ones and the smart ones. I am looking for pictures and friends from Laurelton and Rosedale from 1956 - 1971. I also worked for a Hardware Store from 1965 to 1969 on Saturdays. Not many Laurelton folks will remember me, as I did not attend local schools for grades 7-12. Would love to hear from the old LYAG/ATID crowd from LJC in late '60s. Living in Wheeling, IL - a Chicago suburb 1960 AJHS graduate. As anyone posting at this wonderful site knows, Laurelton will be in our hearts forever. I'm Ronnie and this website has brought back many memories. At lunchtime the girls played records in the cafeteria and we'd dance to the tunes of the 60's as the guys would play ping pong and pool and who would steal glances at us while we danced. It would have been nice if the "block busters" had not raped Laurelton and some of our friends and families still lived there. I've been living in California more than half my life, now, but I'm still a Yankee fan and a lover of NY pizza. Then we'd sit on the front porches and play "Cars." Whoever picked white or black was sure to win.

As I read about the reminiscences of others on this site: 132, 156, "squash" at the handball court, the LJC, Carmine's, Roma's garlic bread (God), the movie theater (which was an addiction on Saturdays, curiously nobody mentioned), the wonderland of Stanley's! Along with: Paul Weintraub, "Logi" Trepper, Barry Becker (a genius/peter pan who dressed as Batman, in his self-made costume and took 'competing' Robins out at night to roam alleys and garage rooftops), John Ploss, Mike Cohen, and others. My family moved to Laurelton in 1955 and I lived at 131-45 227 Street until I moved away in 1964. It would be nice to hear from some of my old friends and see what road they traveled in life. I remember with fondness these friends from the Young Israel: Paula and Gary Katz, Ruthy & Phyllis Gluckman.
