I grew up in Kew Gardens from 1945 to the late 60's in the Barcelona, 83-09 Lefferts Blvd. I'm now back in Kew Gardens and would love to hear from classmates from P.S. 99, Russell Sage, or RHHS.

Really enjoyed your site, learned alot about my former home. My husband and I worked at Regents Row for many years, and lived on Austin St. (son Peter still lives there, rent controlled). We now reside on the West coast of Florida, but always will remember Kew Gardens!!!!!!!!

A simply fabulous site for those that had the opportunity to grow up in Kew Gardens, especially in the 1960s and early 1970s. Ah, the memories of P.S. 99, the schoolyard, and Forest Park as we all came of age in a small community in the middle of New York City during a tumultuous period ... Continued success with this site and thank you.

Moved to Kew Gardens in 1935. One of your photos of San Jose Apartments was taken in 1938 and that is my 1937 Pontiac parked in front. I still live in Kew 67 years. Have a home on 80th Road. My daughter and son were born here. Went to P.S.99 and Forest Hills H.S. Children are now scattered, one in Tucson AZ and daughter and grandaughter in Woodstock NY. Both Carol Rubinoff family as well as mine worshipped at Kew Gardens Anshe Sholom Jewish Center.

I was born (1938) and lived my whole life in Kew Gardens up until 1987, when I moved to Los Angeles. Both my sons were born there (Mitch Rubinoff and Scott Rubinoff). They now live in Los Angeles too with their families. We all have wonderful memories of growing up in such a great neighborhood. I went to PS 99 and Forest Hills H.S. (Class of 1956). Who said "you can't go back"? I have been back several times and it still feels like home. This site is wonderful and I am so glad I found it.

Hi. I just wanted to express how much I enjoyed your site. I happen to live in Kew Gardens in the apartment building on the corner of Lefferts and Austin (The Mowbray). I really adore this neighborhood. Thank you for your work.
