I was born at 1187 W 30th St, just west of Orchard..now 72 I have a ton of memories of the area post 1938..lots of stuff long gone but still a few bits of memories around Chester Place...where I used to skate and bike.
Your University Park secret:
Casa Da Rosas (Hoover and Adams) was a cool Italian restaurant in the '30s and '40's, dark inside at night, redolent with great smells, lots of diners,and multi-colored Christmas tree lights swagged over the outside dining area - a patio..as a kid it was a very special place! Like everything else in that area, used and abused over the decades!
