Things remembered   6 comments

Henry & Me1Since the reunion will be upon us soon I thought I would just check on the memories of the old 83 cops. Let’s see how many of these things you remember.
Now lets return to those thrilling days of yesteryear,  for me that means before old, fat and bald.
Who remembers stopping at Weber’s for a cholesterol sandwich. Remember those? Bacon, eggs and about a half pound of butter? The grease dripping down your arm as you ate.
The Saxon’s a wonderful family, you were guaranteed a fight every time you had a call there.
Charley the drunk staggering along Wyckoff Ave and sleeping in hallways or in snow drifts.
How many remember where you meant if you called another sector car over the radio and told them to meet you on Cinder St, at the Gardens, Alaska or the Cowboy.
Who remembers Johnny Herbert turning out with a roll of toilet paper in his holster? When Sgt. Mis asked why he had it there Johnny said because the place was a shit house.
Capt. O’Sullivan on his first day saying 1 PP had told him “Good luck, the 83 was a cross between a foreign legion outpost and a leper colony” and getting a round of applause for it.
The strange crew in the B & G, Bob the bartender, Doll Face who never realized that she was called that because she had so much make up on her face it looked like it was molded in plastic. The one drunk who seemed to always be there sleeping with his head on the bar and the crowd of us at the pinball machine.
The blackout on July 13, 1977, the city claimed city wide the cops fired only two shots and one was accidental, proving that some great fiction writers worked at City Hall.
The unnamed scooter cop who had been known to turn out with a saber instead of a night stick.
Wanda the Witch with her very large breasts and very ugly face saying, “Feel my heart” in her German accent.
Well that’s enough for now. How many do you remember and how many other things can you think of.

  1. *My* sector George and Boars Head. The donuts in the gray boxes right from the factory, the large pretzels but the egg sandwiches for breakfast were the best. How ’bout Joe & Mary’s restaurant where Galante was killed and a cop, who was raised in the 83, stuck the cigar in his mouth after he was killed. Lot’s of crazy memories. Oh the charcoal, the Rheingold Brewery.


    • I wanted to leave some memories for others. We did have some really good Italian bread there. Remember Joe Farrari cooking in the basement. Bar-B-Queing on midnights where they stored the pipes on Morgan Ave. Remember when they tried to turn the brewery into a Shopping Mall? A reporter asked an 83 cop what he thought of the new mall. The cop asked him if they were going to name it Mugger’s Mall. That ended the mall right there.

    • That was on Knickerbocker?

  2. remember sturiano turning out for roll call naked and showing off his new operation ( he got circumsized )

    • Jerry since you mentioned that you should remember two shall we say unnamed cops who showed up for uniform inspection with zippers down and everything hanging out. They asked Sgt. Kipp if he wanted to inspect them too. He said “Only if they’re stamped.”
