Kudos for all that's been added under "What's New." Regarding the house identified as having been on the corner of Metropolitan and Brevoort, I believe the location once was the site of a home owned by famous baseball player "Lefty" Gomez. I believe this because it was so rumored when I was a child in the early 1950's, and lived just west of there at 119-37 Metropolitan. I wonder if anyone knows anything about this location and the rumor?

My family moved to Kew Gardens in 1943. I went to P.S. 99 & Forest Hills High. Most of my memories center around the PS 99 schoolyard and friends. I now live in Ky. If you remember, e-mail me.

Thank you, Linda, for finding this site. I lived in KG, with my parents and sister, from 1949 to 1961, and then returned to the folks from time to time. Dad is still there.

This is a great site...for Kew Gardens residents (such as I) and non-residents alike. It is informative, and clearly the labor of love of someone who should get out more often. Keep up the great work!

I lived in Kew Gardens from 1950 to 1980. I was back three weeks ago and it brought back memories. I currently live in Florida for 22 years and plan to visit Kew Gardens again real soon.

My brother Richard and my sister Lisa are interested in what is happening to anyone raised in Kew Gardens from 1950 to 1970. We all attended PS 99 and have very fond memories of growing up in Kew Gardens. Let us know how you are all doing.

I lived in Kew Gardens from 1948 until 1964.It was a wonderful place to grow up and I have many fond memories of the neighborhood and the people that lived there. Your site does an excellent job of helping me recall some of those memories. Thank You.

I was born in 1946 and lived in Kew Gardens until 1973. The fondest memories of my life took place in Kew, and this site has been just the tonic I have needed to refresh those thoughts. I would love to hear from anyone who shares my love of Kew Gardens.

There is an error in one of your captions for a photo of Metropolitan Avenue. The location in the picture is Metropolitan Avenue between 116th and 118th Streets. This location is STILL in Richmond Hill. I read your page about the location of the boundary between Richmond Hill and Kew Gardens. Congressman Weiner is wrong about many things - the neighborhood border included. If the border between Richmond Hill and Kew Gardens is placed as far south as Hillside Avenue or Myrtle Avenue then Richmond Hill the hill would be in Kew Gardens! Historic Richmond Hill would be in Kew Gardens.

This is a fantastic and glorious site on the Kew Gardens Community. The work, effort and organization are superb! It truly gives us a glimpse into the past, and the details and precision are astounding. It is one of the best historical websites I have ever seen. Hats off to you and your wonderful work!!
