CHECK THE BOTTOM OF EVERY PAGE FOR LINKS!!! ... 8-3-05 .. PLEASE PASS THIS WEBSITE ADDRESS ON TO OTHERS.... When I find more information I will add other years. NOTE: I have NEVER made a cent off this. It is just for nostalgia..... I plan to first add the MAIN STREETS of each decade so that I eventually cover EVERY IU Grads nostalgia. walt karwicki 252 west cottage place york,pa 17403 at IU 1967-1973... If I could just find my 1967 Bloomington Directory I would add more now that I am no longer 'afraid' of this thing like I was in the 1990s. I have EVERY city directory from 1966 until 1995, plus a few before 1966 (such as 1940) I am a two finger typist. In my day Physics majors never had to learn to type. That was just for secretaries (female in those ancient times) 8-3-05 .. I made a diagram of the COLLEGE MALL once but I cant find it. I will keep looking.


NOTE: Thursday, August 4, 2005. 12:33 pm. York College library, York,Pa (Between Harrisburg and Baltimore line,,, Between Gettysburg and Lancaster. I was born and raised in Grrepoint, Brooklyn and Astoria Queens,,,,, I live at 252 west cottage place, york,pa 17403.. By comparing old newspapers with the stores in these city directories I learned that the people who checked what was where always seemed to have done it in the THIRD WEEK OF NOVEMBER each year. I noticed that a big "I" shaped piece of cardboard they gave us had a store on it that went under while not mentioning one that existed. That and the newspapers helped me learn the date they compiled this. NEW STUFF 1-6-99 wednesday 246pm _____1-5-99 _____

WALT KARWICKI 252 west cottage place york,pa 17403

THURSDAY AUGUST 4, 2005::: In the 9/67 to 6/68 period I NEVER walked all the way up North Walnut Street. Neither di I walk to many other places in Bloomington as I nervous about doing so. It was the HIPPIE era and the STONIES tended to hate COLLEGE STUDENTS in history. I walked down KIRKWOOD as far as COLLEGE AVENUE and around the SQUARE. BUT I did NOT walk one bit west of Kirkwood/College. The supermaket that could be seen down the hill across the tracks was for STONIES. I also NEVER in 1967 walked north on WALNUT beyond the BURGER CHEF next to THE OLDE REGULATOR. I never walked up WALNUT on the WEST SIDE of Walnut street for that one block between the COURTHOUSE SQUARE and the BURGER CHEF, There was THE STONY BAR ON THAT BLOCK and we walked on the other side of the street where the MOVIE HOUSES were. In 67-68 I did not even walk one block south of KIRKWOOD on South Walnut or South College. When I arrived at IU I came down from Indianapolis on the Greyhound and I got off there and took a cab to campus. I thought nothing of walking from campus to 10th street to the GREYHOUND and A&W ROOTBEER as that street was a STUDENT street. But I never walked from 10th street to 7th street on North walnut as that was stony territory. There was a CLEANERS in there but the only time I was ever there was with some rich kid who had a car and he would leave his laundry there and pick it up. So that was the ONLY time I had set foot there and it was a bright afternoon in early 1968 and we stepped from the car to the CLEANERS( "MARTINIZING". I also never went west from North Walnut Street east from that area between 7th and 10th until 1995!!!! And then I saw there had been an Elementary School back there. I also never walked up either North Walnut or North College from 10th steet (Greyhound, Waffle House, A&W). I know that there was a restarant on North Walnut in there (Some kind of DRIVE IN) but I never actually saw it. I did not ever walk up that street from 10th until the 1990s. So I never did walk up North Walnut 9/67-6/68 so I could never see BURGER KING being built up there. ... It was not until 1972!! that I ever walked down SOUTH WALNUT to the A&W. I recall us walking and it seemed so far as we had never done it before. We then got coffee and then walked back. (Maybe it was early 1972??) . What was happening was that the STONIES were being slowly pushed back by the COLLEGE STUDENTS. More students came in and the college expanded. The rules about HAVING to live in dorms and CURFEWS were being pushed away in 1966, 1967, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73. More cars were allowed. More student loans were appearing. "EN LOCAL PARENTIS" (sp?) was dying so kids couls move out. I recall being shocked when a girl told me that "HER" supermarket was a block SOUTH on South College Avenue.(1972?) That was pure Stony before! Next to that supermaket was a "drug store' which was much, much more like a HILLBILLY GENERAL STORE. What was weird was that I was able to but my HIGH SPEED EZ-MATIC FILM there for my Yascica and that film was so rare I had a hard time finging it in NEW YORK CITY yet this place had it all the time. (Among all the rifles and knives and other stony stuff. I never dared go into it until the Supermarket had STUDENTS in it. August 4, 2005. ... but I do recall going into the A&P Supermarket on North College once. Maybe even in 67 or 68. In bright daylight though when the TOWNIES were at work in the early afternoon, I think.

If you recall what any now-defunct thing looked like, inside or outside, please tell us all on the MESSAGE BOARD!!!

What really drove me nuts in 1991, 92, 94,95 was tring to find a corner store my friend and I walked past on the way back up from the far-south A&W. There was a townie neighborhood WEST of SOUTH WALNUT, SOUTH of WEST KIRKWOOD. It had OLD sidewalks and was very cozy. There were leaves everywhere and there was a tiny GROCERY whose entrance right on the corner. My fried made acomment about how unusual it was as was the block itself as it was so quiet and peacefull. I was NEVER able to find the place. Even with copies of the CITY DIRECTORIES of the early 1970s when we were there. I could not find anything that looked anything like it after spending a long time looking for it all four trips there. I wonder now if the whole area was gutted and changed or something. I also wonder if it was where the HOSPITAL is now???!!!
