Roselle Park NJ

1937. Westfield Ave. at Chestnut St., facing west.
Scene as my Dad knew it. The center divider still exists in that form & continues all the way into Elizabeth not far from where I live. Much of my neighborhood resembles  Roselle Park. The theater & Hap's & Cap's  were  there when I was growing up. Hap's & Cap's had atmosphere, hangout for high school guys sitting at the lunch counter eating  fried hot dogs & drinking cherry Cokes. You could smell the hot dogs outside.  Good comics selection; only store in town with rack of Classics Illustrated comics.
