I am not sure what they teach kids in school anymore. Based on a recent experience, I guess not recent American history for sure. My office hired a new associate in his early 30's. He was asked if he knew who John Glenn was or what he did. He had not the slightest idea. Upon further inquiry he attended John Glenn High School in Elwood, NY. We concluded that it was likely he was a Russian spy.
Wow!! Hamburger Choo Choo was a Huntington landmark with great burgers when I was a kid. As i recall there was a fire as a result of grease build up that closed it. There is a hibachi place on that corner now.
