Now it's not like I went sifting through the dirt for this find. I already knew the spirit of the Brooklyn Dodgers ate here. If your imagination is good enough, there's good 'ol OISK in the corner feeding his face on some ribs and a side of HomeStyle Stuffing. Campy and Duke were looking over the Super Bowl menu and getting some ideas for the big party. Folks, some of Dem Bums lived in these neighborhoods with us. People still tell their stories. John, obviously younger than me, was none-the-less in touch with his Dodger heritage. If you know where to look, there's evidence everywhere. The Baseball Archaeologist will ride the TROLLEY high and low bringing you every find I make.
But today?...I just had to walk dude. Do you know I walked out of there without getting anything to eat? I was just happy with a new post in hand and forgot. I'm a regular customer though, I'll just order twice next week.
Here are some pictures of Ebbets Field dated 1913. "Not Just Chicken" had an extensive Coney Island display, but I'm saving that for another day....(uh, summer?) What I will share about this one particular Coney pic - the tower on the left is the Parachute Jump, the large structure on the right was STEEPLECHASE PARK. The Steeplchase site is the current location of Keyspan Park, the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones of the New York/Penn League. The Parachute Jump is a NYC Landmark today. It hasn't been operational since the 60's, but it's none-the-less iconic to us. I included a recent pic of the boardwalk and Parachute Jump for reference. You're going to have to wait a little longer before I starting hitting you with Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball talk.
Thank you again goes to, NOT JUST CHICKEN located at 1687 86th Street off 17th Avenue in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. It's really good eatin'....Fuggedaboutit!! Thanks again John.
