Asked By Nancy Melaccio on November 28, 2012
Subject: Bungelows
This is an answer to the question about the bungelows accross from the hand store in ship --they belonged to my grandparents--John and Ann Thomson. They were call Thomson Cottages. There were 5 two family buildings and my
grandparents home was @109W 26th st.After their deaths my family sold the property to the owners of the Hand store.

I remember those bungalows- they were right across the street from my grandparents' home at 111 W. 25th St. In the '40s (and maybe early '50s) there was also an old derelict house on the NW corner of that same block. At the bay, at the end of 25th, was a launch ramp which was removed when the (then) "new" pier was built.

I have the best memories from the MANY time we stayed in the, what we referred to the homes as the Thomson Bungalows. The family rented one where we would crowd in. I do recall the showers at the far end of the back lot. I can't tell you the many times when we get together and just talk about the great times we had. I remember walking over to the bay to Gussie's of to crab off the little dock that was there. Man o' man..............

Ahhh, yes... good ol' Gus's! Gus and Helen ran that cool little luncheonette, with two pinball machines and a jukebox (that I wish I owned today!). Gus drove a black '37-or-so Lincoln Zephyr that would be parked just to the left (south) of the store.
Summering at my grandparents' place a half a block away, I'd often go crabbing there, too-- sometimes with just a net, as crabs often clung to the bulkhead around that cove of the bay.
