I spent many nights here since my both parents were born and raised in Greenville section of Jersey City. We moved out to North Arlington when I was 3 but many of our relatives still lived in Jersey City. My dad worked in the Amercian Can Company as did my both uncles along with many other Jersey City residents back then. My dad also bowled on a bowling league at the Roosevelt Lanes and I remember going there also. Years later I took my kids to the drive in there to see Grease. I also remember going to see the Grateful Dead at Roosevelt Stadium whish is not gone also. Many memories in my mind are physically gone in NJ. I guess that is progress or just part of getting old, a part I wish were different. Other countries preserve their older buildings, stadiums, etc. rather than tearing them down, I wish we did the same here.

i used to sell newspapers at the great eastern dept store, and would go over to the drive-in to see parts of movies. it also gave memy intro. to dirty movies,which a couple of years later turned over to.

I used to go there in the 60s. It was located right behind the Great Eastern Mills store. Memories!!!
