Hi Walt ... Jim Beck finally getting back to your latest reply . I lived in Woodhaven from 1947 ( my birth ) until 1972 ... my Mom still lived there until her passing in 2006 . I now live in Mineola , about 15 miles east of Woodhaven . Woodhaven was a close knit town , with Popp's one of the most popular ice cream parlors . Never really knew any of the family , but I do know quite a few people who hung out at Popp's , the 86 St . ice cream parlor ( Ferry St . way back then ) ... also several people who had Popp family members in their St . Thomas the Apostle class . During her last few years , Popp's was my Mom's favorite eat out spot . For a look of Woodhaven's past and present , go onto www.projectwoodhaven .com , a site that moves you through many pages and decades . That store is still open ( spelling is now Pop's ), most of the 1920's era ice cream parlor inside is still intact , but now has more of a full NYC style diner menu . To look at that store in 2013 , go onto Google Maps , it is on a corner , the addresses should be about 85-20 Jamaica Ave . , Woodhaven , NY 11421 . My grandfather Ambrose ( William ) Beck came to Woodhaven from Reichenback Germany in 1893 at age 14 , married my grandmother in 1909 , and their first apartment was on Jamaica Ave . near 85 St . ... a block from the Popp's store . My grandfather ( known as Pop to his grandchildren ) lived to age 100 years and 4 months at his passing in October 1979 . I am sure they must have known each other . Can you fill me in on yourself ... did you or your parents ever live in Woodhaven , if so which years , schools and years attended , etc ... . Some of those former teen customers would love to hear updates . Also interesting ... just go onto E-bay and put Woodhaven in the search box .. often historic postcards are listed and shown there .
