Old Rockaway Friends Reunite For Picture
|In 1940, approximately 64 years ago, a group of Rockaway friends (and one of their brothers) got together for a picture. The girls, all of whom lived on Burchell Avenue in Arverne at the time, were classmates and both PS 42 and Far Rockaway High School. Left to right, they are Angelina (Sabatino) Pontillo, Adeline (Sabatino) Ferrendi, Rosemarie (Malazzo) Gluck, the unnamed bother, Joan (Camarata) Fabrizzio, Vita (Nagaliere) Guebilo and Marian (Intrabartola) Fodera.
This picture of the same girls, now women in their 60’s, was taken in Woodmere on June 24, 2004. The women are in the same order they were in the original picture (minus the young boy). Most of the women now live in the Five Towns of Nassau County, but some live as far away as Florida.
