The Museum in the Streets

The intersection at this stoplight has been an important crossroads for generations, known colloquially to villagers as "downstreet." J.B. McQuaig, an Irish immigrant, ran the general store pictured here for much of the first half of the 20th century. His wares included newspapers, magazines, candy, cigars, tobacco, and products from SOCONY (Standard Oil Company of New York). From 1947 to 1999, John and Marilyn Kading ran the Corner News store here, the heartbeat of the community. The building across Church Street once housed Velletri's tailor shop, but in 1920 it became Carmine Nardone's ice cream store. For more than 70 years, schoolchildren considered it their unofficial meeting place. Many fondly recall when a scoop of ice cream cost 5 cents, and a banana split 10 cents.

La intersezione a questo semaforo è stata un importante incrocio per generazioni, conosciuta dagli abitanti come "downstreet." J. B. McQuaig, un immigrante irlandese gestiva il negozio nella fotografia. Nel 1932 le merci vendute includevano giornali, riviste, dol- ciumi, sigari, tabacco, e prodotti di SOCONY (Standard Oil Company of New York). Quindi diventòl Corner News di John e Marilyn Kading, una fiorente attività dal 1947 al 1999, e centro nevralgico del paese. L'edificio di fronte Church

Street una volta ospitava la sartoria di Velletri, ma nel 1920 diventò la gelateria di Carmine Nardone. Per più di 70 anni gli studenti lo considerarono il loro punto d'incontro. Molti ricordano con nostalgia quando una pallina di gelato costava 5 centesimi ed una banana split dieci. (Marker Number 15.)
