"One summer I was working at Woolworth in Levittown, and the store was trying to get rid of hoola hoops, so I volunteered to sell them in front of the store," Carol Ackley remembers. "Needless to say, I saw everyone from Division Avenue High School that day, and I could not make the hoop spin. Frank Barning and Russ Green thought that was the funniest thing."

Does anyone have 1950s photos of the Wooolworths store in Wantagh, near the train station?
