When I was a little fellow, my uncle used to rent a beach house with his friends in Bradley Beach, I think we even seen a show here in the 1980’s. Is Nardi’s Italian Restaurant still around?

Its great to see a movie theatre lasting this long-so many theatres-I have been to in my 31 years have ceased.. (UA Astoria, Boulevard, Chopin Theatre, Commodore Theatre..etc)

Happy 80th
