How interesting! I lived at 288 Third Street between Thornton and Judson.
That was back in the years 1936 to 1947. In 1950, I sang in the church
choir and attended a young person's Sunday discussion group, where several
medical students from Albany Medical attended. The choir master moves there
from Canada just to have access to the pipe organ.
I am very glad that the church has not been abandoned. I would like to
find out if the present congregation has any of the old records.
As I remember, the corner of First and Lexington also housed a grocery
store owned by a Jewish gentleman (I can't remember his name.) We used to run
away with any green bananas that the delivery man dropped off his truck. We
wrapped them in tissue paper and stored them down in the cellar to ripen.
Needless to say, we kids forgot the bananas hidden there and they usually
ended up black and thrown away.
Such fond memories. Please excuse my ramblings.
