I lived on Metropolitan Avenue at the corner of Brevoort Street. I went to PS 99, Russell Sage and Richmond Hill HS. I'd love to be able to locate some good friends for many years in each of those schools. I remember our graduation day from high school, sitting at Jahn's for ice cream. We talked about meeting in 5 years, but then decided we didn't need to make a formal plan. Our thought was that, of course, we would still be friendly. I haven't seen them since. Their names were Susan Marx, Ruth Brand and Nancy Carlin. If you have any info. on them, I'd love to have it.
Thanks very much.

The last I heard from her (early 1980's when I was working as a musician in Mexico) she had moved to Israel and was performing as a professional violinist there.

I am looking for Linda and her brother, Benjamin Goldenburg. Linda went to PS 90 with me during the first grade and a few grades after. She lived on 116th Street in an apartment building (between Metropolitan Avenue and Curzon Road). I knew her when I was 6 and 7 years old. She would be 47 years old today. I lived in Kew Gardens from 1965 through 1988 and my parents still reside on Park Lane South (between 112th and 115th Streets). If anyone knows where Linda Goldenburg is or can get in touch with her brother Benjamin, it would be great.

Name of person sought: Marjorie Lasher
    She was living in the Arden Terrace in the '50s, with her father, who I think was a parole officer(?) and around that time I think her mother died prematurely. Marjorie was an only child I think. We had a couple of dates when I was in my first year at Queens College in 1954 (now CUNY). I thought she was such a lovely person, but for some reason I cannot remember why we never got to know each other very well or why we stopped seeing each other after the first couple of dates. She went to Richmond Hill HS like me and probably was in the grad. year of '55. I graduated in '54.
    As absurd as it sounds now, it is my recollection that she was the perfect "girl next door" that any young man would want to marry; gentle, kind, softspoken, intelligent, and very pretty. So how did I let her slip away like that? Obviously I was too young to be thinking seriously about marriage in my first year of college......And yet....... My name is Matthew Speier-- I posted a letter on this site Nov. 25, 2003
    I lived in KG from 1943 to 1958; my parents lived there many years, my father until his death in 1993 and my mother--who was the local piano teacher on the block--until 1998 when she was moved to a care facility.

Looking for Claudia Stoltman (the poet), Mickey Siegel and the impossible to find Roger Lewin Claudia, you came to my 5th grade Halloween party as a waif. You had recently moved to Kew Gardens and told me you were a poetess. I was a guitarist and budding writer. The following year in the summer of 69 I attended Woodstock with my wacky parents. Then we moved to Siberia (Dix Hills, Long Island). Never heard from you again. Mickey I had known since I was 5 before moving to Kew Gardens as our parents (well both sets did divorce in the heady 60's, early post Beatles years) were really good friends. I saw you a few times believe it or not in high school Yeah babe, we went to the same vacuous school on LI, Half Hollow Hills. Then you disappeared to colorado or somewhere out west and I to Japan. And lastly, the illusive Roger Lewin. Duh? Where are you my friend from 3rd grade - whom I could "talk to". Love to hear from you all Elise Krentzel blows kisses from Amsterdam

I'm trying to find any information I can about a Loretta Markey, widow of Albert Markey who apperently lived in Kew Gardens and died in July of 1982, according to the social security information available on line. She was my mother's cousin, and they had lost touch. She had a brother Conrad, who lived in NY, but who knows where. We're wondering if she had any children or if anyone might have known her. Her maiden name was Lassond, or Lassonde. Any assistance would be really appreciated.
