Plainedge High School Missed Connections
Yes Foodtown did open in that location in 1980 , I worked for them . I think Jolly Roger as we all called it closed in 1978 or 79. But by then the amusement part was called Smileys Happyland and the resturant was called Robin Hood.
Regarding the Plainedge Annex, my mother worked there (approximately 1955) and I went to kindergarten there in the basement in 1950.
This was definitely the way it was. I used to sit at a friends house facing the drive-in on Normandy Drive and watched the Incredible Shrinking Man. Those were the good old days!!! Watching a movie for free.
I worked at Jolly Rogers all through my Plainedge High School years from 10th grade, graduated in 1970. I started out as a busboy and soon moved to the ice cream counter. Then hamburgers and of course everything fried from fish to french fries. I also worked with Joe Neary, the tall skinny guy at the hot dogs counter. In my senior year I worked the birthday parties in the large back room every Sunday. Made enough money to buy a nearly new/used Chevy Camaro across the street at Mal Pierce Pontiac.
I had an absolute BLAST working at JR's and got to know so many kids from other surrounding high schools. Still friends with a few of them to this day. Great memories. (ate like a king)
I used to work in Bethpage movie theater
as an usher. That was in 1968.
I am pretty sure that Northedge opened in '54 or '55. I went there for kindergarten in 1955-56 with Miss Kasendorf as my teacher.
When did Jolly Rogers close down (yr) & was it food town that went up in it's palce?
When I worked there in the 1970s we used to chase the kids that ate the sauerkraut.
Thanks so much for posting that!

I attended kindergarten New Grace Annex in Plainedge, 1961. Soon left for Toronto.
Thanks for the Wetsons ad!!
Wasn't it "Merry 'Olds"?
I played on the Jolly Rogers little league team in 1956, and Nunleys also sponsored a team that season.
Wasn't it a Pontiac car dealer?
Does anyone remember Jolly Rogers on the turnpike and hicksville Rd? Well it was called Nunleys, and Jolly Rogers was the restaurant. The reason I ask is that anytime I read an article about the horses from the Nunleys carousel it always mentions the Baldwin and never the one by us. I bet alot of the horses are from the Bethpage location. Does anyone know or care. It just bothers me since it was a place that I remember well. It has been there since thelate 50's, I'm sure!
