Under the streets of Queens

Reminds me of the time when I was a kid, on the corner of 31st Avenue and 33rd Street in Astoria (right in front of today's Brick Cafe which was then Kasewitz's Grocery) a guy came and lifted the sewer manhole cover and with a jerry-rigged wire coat hanger contraption fished out about 20 "spaldeens". On the 33rd Street brick wall of the Brick Cafe we used to play boxball and many a ball went down the sewer.

Finders keepers.

I'm sure at least one of those spaldeens was mine!
