Born in the hood

I was born at St Mary's Hospital - now the Marie Lederman Senior Center at Palmer and Frankford. Except for a short stint as a married person living in the "great northeast", I've lived here ever since. I'm a Holy Namer, as were my parents, grandparents and children. I'm now a St Anne'er.
I just discovered this website while looking for the Fishtown Star/Spirit websites. I hope to be active on the site. Thanks for the opportunity. MareYeager

Welcome to online 'hood. And, welcome to NoYo (North of York), what we Ft.us'ers call St. Anne's neighborhood. Here my whole life except for two questionable years in the suburbs. Shudders.

It appears their last name is Yeager, and the person who owned that store was named Yeager.
Thats all.

Hi, I think you are talking about Flemming's Corner Store.If so it was Thompson and Norris. They had the dark wooden phone booth and pinball. I spent most of my babysitting money there. They sold everything from candy to shampoo. Here is how far I go back. 5 cent unlimited phone calls and penny gumball machines.
Well before I have a senior moment, welcome Mare to Fishtown US.
