Dear Editor:

Back in the the 30's and '40's my brother Nat had the candy store (Lee's sweet shop) next door to the Maspeth Theatre, the only movie theater in Maspeth, on the corner of 69th Place and Grand Avenue.

How many remember when sodas were a nickel, malts were a dime and you got three glasses? Small seltzers were two cents. You could charge it for a week at my brother Nat's candy store.

I wonder if any of my old cronies are still around. I would love to hear from them.
