SPOTLIGHT PHOTOS

 Having so many neat photos scattered over all these 500+ pages on this websight, and with new ones arriving and being found from all over, I hit upon the brainstorm that it might be nice to single one out from time to time. And it will also call attention to a specific part of the websight that has grown far past what I ever thought it would. So this page will be often updated , but not on any specific schedule. When it is, the date will change on main menu. Former photos are archived below with a quick link to them.

BETTY'S CRYSTAL PARADISE

Mastic NY

This is another real rare one folks. Anyone out there remembers this place?

I'm not sure how long it was called The Crystal Paradise , but I remember having my very first pizza in it around 1950 - 51, when it bcame Tony Bonjovi's BLUE LANTERN on Montauk Hwy & Midland Ave. It remained the Blue Lantern through the '50s & '60s and disappeared from the Mastic landscape in the 1970s. This photo was taken in January of 1945. The lady in the pic is none other than Estelle Parr, who would become Mrs. David Schulz about a year later and mother to Larry & Dennis Schulz.

GOT PHOTOS????

If you have some photos that are relevant to anything on this websight and would like to share them, then please get in touch. Condition is not important as I can restore them. Several I am actively seeking are: Bob DeCordova's Service Station (Aspen & Whiitier), Fannie's Spaghetti House (on Diana Dr.) Birdsall Hardware , The Stop & Shop, Jean's, HC Grand 5&10 cent store and of course it goes without saying ANY OF THE KNAPP MANSION AND ESTATE INTERIOR OR EXTERIOR!
