Editorial: These Places Make Me Think…Actually Imagine The Old Days

I’m a sucker for a good movie set “back in the day.” They make me imagine what it was like, considering I’m not of primary source age or knowledge-wise in certain time periods. Maybe it’s because of the way things looked. Maybe everything seemed much more vibrant. I don’t know. I’m rambling.

Places like the Mineola Diner and Biscuits & Barbecue, which is right next door to Anton Community Newspapers, give me that sense of nostalgia when I pass the diner on Willis Avenue and Jericho Turnpike or B&B walking to the office each day. I imagine groups of men and women in hats and fedoras chomping down on breakfast and lunch. I picture an old Coke machine spitting out glass bottles of sweet delight.

On a side note, if you drink soda (I stopped four years ago) spend the extra buck and drink it out of a glass bottle. It’s the only way it should be enjoyed.

If I had my way, fedoras would still be in style, but I guess that’s why I write for a living and don’t design clothing for Tommy Hilfiger…but they’re slowly making a comeback from what I’ve seen in New York City and around Long Island.

Again, this is all from what I’ve read, seen and heard so I’m sure if you want a firsthand account, you’ll look elsewhere. I usually look to On the Waterfront, The Untouchables, The Adventures of Superman, Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy, Hollywoodland, North by Northwest, It’s a Wonderful Life and…I don’t know. I’m rambling.
