Looking for Dave Vickers. Dave lived with his parents on Talbot Street in the Talbot Street Apartments and attended Richmond Hill High School 1961-1965, or thereabouts. I lived in KG until 1967 and lost track of Dave at that time. I was good friends with Dave and was wondering what happened to him.

    The Muroffs lived in Kew and I was going to marry Joan at one point around 1970. We went on to marry others but I think about her with fond memories now and then. I recently ran into old friends from NYC and I thought it would be nice to pass along good tidings to Joan and see what happened with this remarkable woman. If there is way to forward my sentiments to her or her brothers that would be great.
    My web site is buckswoodside.com. I am known and the Zsa Zsa Gabor of Silicon Valley. Famous for no apparent reason.

Hello. I am looking for Sheila Ewald or her mother if she is still living. I knew Sheila approx. 1952-54 and she lived in garden apartments in Kew Gardens, can't remember exactly where--just that it was walking distance from my building. I lived on 83rd Avenue just off Metropolitan. We were 9-11 years old then. Sheila had a speech disability and perhaps a physical disability as well. My name used to be Sheila Baker. I would be very grateful if anyone has any information. Thanks a lot.

    My name is Richard Adams, while I was brought up a Long Island boy (worked for the Long Island railroad) I now live in Ocala, Florida.
    I am trying to locate Johanna Kent. I believed she lived in the manor apartments right off the train platform. During the mid sixties she hired me to photograph some of her fine paintings. Such a lovely person, it would great fun to get in touch with her once again. My guess is she is about in her mid sixties today.
    Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Name - Michael Jovishoff
June 5, 2006
I knew Michael in the late 60's, as I was dating one of his friends (D.A. Gould) and we eventually married. Michael was dating a gal named, Lynn, who later went off to explore new adventures. I remember that Michaels' dad, Hans, had a house in Woodstock, NY and we were frequent guests. Gould and I divorced but I remained friends with Michael. I had an MG-Midget and named it after one of Michael's cats, "Millie". Unfortunately, Michael and I lost touch. I moved to California in 1985, met my soul mate and we married. Glad to read that Michael fulfilled his dream of being a city planner. Hope life, love and health have been very good to him!

    Hi –I was BORN AT KEW GARDENS HOSPITAL (which I know is no longer there. I didn’t live in Kew Gardens as a kid…I lived in Laurelton, Queens…but my mom would take me to the Building Department, on Queens Blvd, every week to file papers or do research—since her family were home builders and plumbers. And my uncle was a lawyer at the Courthouse next to the Building Department, so we would sometimes go in and watch trials, just for fun.
    My family was close with a family when I was young, and their name was Wolfe. (or Wolf). I am almost positive they lived in Kew Gardens. This would have been in the early to mid 60’s. The mom’s name was Pearl, and there was a son named Joshua that was a little older than me—which would make him somewhere around 57 (I am 55). He had a sister—I think her name might have been Debbie, but I’m not sure. I remember clearly when the dad died—he was young.
    I would love to catch up with Josh and his sister—if I could find them…but this is all I know about them.
Thanks for any help!

Looking for Mrs. Diane Roher, my 4th and 6th grade teacher at PS 99. I graduated in 1972. Hope you are well. Are you still teaching? I caught a glimpse of you on August 6, 1989 at JFK as you were running with your family to catch a plane to Orlando. I wanted to say hello, but, by the time I realized it was you, you had already boarded the plane!

CLICK TO ENLARGE.Hi: Thank you for your wonderful web site on Kew Gardens. How did I get to your web site you might be thinking. I was on my computer here in Los Angeles this morning listening to Yahoo Music when a familiar but very old song came on. The song instantly reminded me of the Summer of 1972 and driving along Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens with my first girlfriend, Claire Wernick. Claire lived in an apartment on I believe Austin Boulevard with her parents at the time. If I remember from the last time, which is many years ago, when I spoke to her, she was divorced and lived in Manhattan.
    After hearing that song, I typed her name into Yahoo and your site came up. I was wondering if you had any information on how I could contact her just to say hello to her. If that is possible, please let me know. You can release any of my information to Claire if she so desires.
    Thank you for you help and I really enjoyed spending time in Kew Gardens that Summer of 72. In case her memory has faded as mine has sine I have reached the Big 50, here are some pictures that might help.
