There was a bakery in the square in front of the Crestwood station. The owner/baker's wife worked as a supervisor for the phone company and got me a job with the phone company in White Plains as a telephone operator. I did it vacations and summer for 2 years and made the most $$ I ever made and worked my ass off. I had no social life because I worked the highest paying shifts 5- midnight or splits (9-12 and 4-7) After 2 summers, I decided I needed a social life and went to work at Camp Sloane for Fergie. We used to get the day old bakery stuff for free from them. I am not sure if he was Italian or eastern European but I think his name was Pete.
Another owner we knew was the gas station owner over by Lord and Taylors. Again the name escapes me, but we did not have to wait in line for gas during the oil embargo and he loaned my dad his huge motor home for us to make my college tour my senior year. ( My dad was the local Sear Service man) The highlight of that trip was my dad forgot to put down the air conditioning unit and took down the metal arch in State College at Penn State.
I love old memories. Just wish I could remember the names.
