My name is Lauri Lilien (used to be Laura Lilien.) I lived on 82nd Avenue. I am still living in New York and working in Publishing. I would love to get in touch with my former best friend, Melinda (Missy) Heiman Hart who I lost touch with when we went to college. She went to SUNY Albany and got married and lived in Slingerlands, NY. If anyone knows how I can reach her, please email me at: Lauri@bdlev.com. Thanks!

I lived in on Metropolitan Avenue during the 1940s and graduated from P.S. 99 in January, 1949. My "maiden" name was Anne Holland. I now live in Eugene, OR. It would be fun to hear from any of you, my classmates, and also from Janet Prendergast ('June '49). I visited P.S. 99 not too long ago and found it still to be a very lively place. I thought that for our 65th anniversary in 2014, we might do something nice, i.e. useful, for the school and maybe even organize a reunion. Any ideas??

My name is Shirley June Chen. From 1960-1973 I lived at 124-18 Queens Blvd ,Kew Gardens. I don't mind my e-mail address being posted. In 1972 we moved to forest hills and i lost my father to cancer. We then moved to california. I came back to soho in 1977 and graduated washington Irving H.S. in 1978. I then went into the U.S. Army in 1979. Four children and a lifetime later it seems so long ago. Queens has totally changed. My oldest daughter and my sister live in the rockland county area. I was totally devestated with 911 happening. Now I am happy I live in Maine, however i miss the food and culture. Please post my e-mail address so my old friends can chat with me. I will try to figure out how to post pictures on this site. fantasyeyes_1@yahoo.com. My father Jimmy chen was the master chef at the pub resteraunt and the stratton in forest hills hence the move. Thank you for making this site possible!
I Remain,
Shirley J. Chen.

     My name is Linda Zbar and I lived at 118-41 Metropolitan Avenue with my brother Bert Zbar, and my parents Nat and Selma Zbar. We lived there from, 1938 until 1950. We lived on the third floor. I would love to locate Geraldine (do not know last name), whose kitchen window faced ours. As little girls, we used to have conversations from my window to hers. I believe her parents names were Grace and Jerry (but not sure).
     I would also like to locate Jack and Eddie Wertheimer who lived at 118-35 Metropolitan Avenue. I went to PS 99 until the 4th grade in 1950.
     My father had a laundry store at 69-03 69th Avenue called Stafford Hudson Laundry.
     Anyone remember me or my family?
