Tottenville History

Tottenville in Prose continued

 
“Tottenville inProse”  …continued #4
 
 
 
“There are some places I should have mentioned before
 
They were Hoehns Baking shop and Charley Lehman’s drug store
 
From Lehman’s drug store it was just a hop
 
Where the empty lot is now was Sevenhaar’s plumber shop
 
There is a place which always looks the same
 
That place was the home of Paul Van Name
 
Then there was George Sleight and George Cunningham up thestreet
 
They were two butchers where the people bought their meat
 
We come to a hardware store owned by Ben Brown
 
Where the bank stands now the Post office stood
 
The post master then was Rueben Wood
 
Across from the post office was a man who dressed swell
 
He had a fast horse and that was Ben Cotrell.”
