Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River
Hello from a native Essex boy. My name is Charlie Kostos, I grew up at 11 Homberg Ave & worked at Raymond’s Men’s Store on Eastern Ave in Essex . I thought that Mac Donald’s opened on New Eastern ave between Stemmers Run school
& Middlesex Shopping Center back in the 60’s ?? Does anyone remember ? Thanks I remember Hollywood Park and a lot of great memories
I was born in 1940 at Old Eastern Ave. about 1/4 mile from Josenhand’s corner. My first job as a stock boy at S. S. Kresge’s variety store in Middlesex Shopping Center, between from 1956 to 1958. I’m thinking of visiting soon again for a lot of memories I had up to about 1969.

There was definitely a Gino’s there. I think it was Gino’s #1. #2 was on Pulaski Highway near the City line.
Definitely a Gino’s. My Dad used to work there while he was a student at Kenwood HS. C/O 1965!
Hi Charlie…it was a Gino’s in front of Stemmers Run. One of the earliest fast food joints…it may have become a Mcdonalds subsequently. Nice to know you are alive and kicking. Larry Vincent, also a Raymond’s alumni.
I believe I remember the Gino’s from the 70’s. I don’t think there was a McDonald’s in that spot. It’s been a Dunkin’ Donuts for decades.
I remember going to a fast food there called Golden Point
My sister was born in 1946 she went to the Hollywood Club every weekend she’s 9yrs older than me. She has very fun memories of it. I lived in Essex from 1974-1997
