    I can remember a few names from the wayback machine (mid 1950’s). Robert O’Connor and Donald Sweeney who lived on Parkside around 10th Avenue. Jimmy and Bunky Flynn from Windsor Place. Danny Mills, Bill Anton, Tall Paul Murphy, Charles Hamilton, the Bannons from Windsor Place (Mike, Kathleen, Joe and John), Stanley Asimov, the Galligans from Windsor, Maureen and Patricia Duffy, George Koegler, Harvey Cumbe, Patrick Nannery, Edgar Leach, the lovely Patricia Harvey, Rosetta Moeckler and on and on. Hope they are all doing well!

      You knew Bunky Flynn? I gotta say, that’s a great name.

      • George Farrell says:

        I knew Bunky very well. I even know his real first name which would earn you a fat lip if you called him that. Do you know Bunky, Coach?

      • hoopscoach says:

        I did not. Love the name though…

        Neighborhood legend had Bunky Flynn serving in the Army and being used as an extra in the James Bond movie Goldfinger when the exterior shots were done around Fort Knox. I believe he was said to be one of the soldiers who collapses when Pussy Galores girls drop the gas from the planes.

        Pussy Galore! LOL

    Sadly, I just learned that one of the yard’s best balers from the 60s passed recently.
    RIP, Tommy Tex Cummins

    I believe he went to John Jay and then St Francis College. Don’t remember where he lived. He had 2 boys.
    I coached at All Hallows and had the privilege of coaching Bobbby and Gerard Trapp.

    • hoopscoach says:

      WOW Jimmy…

      What a treat to coach to of the best from the neighborhood!

      Love Gerard and Bobby. They were inspirational to this young boy growing up in the yard.

    Gotta wonder why the Trapp brothers, obviously very talented hoopsters, travelled all the way to All Hallows when Bishop Ford was right around the corner.
