Gansett and Park Avenues
Let's not forget the Burger Chef in Cranston, RI on the corner of Gansett Ave & Park Ave. I remember in the late 50s and early 60s walking to the corner, sitting down across the street on the corner house retaining wall close by the sidewalk, being only 9-10 years old, I was not allowed to cross Park Avenue. I sat there for hours just watching all the cars entering and leaving the, quote "The Chef". I couldn't wait for the souped-up cars to pull out of the parking lot on to Park Ave, back then I guess it was somewhat legal to spin tires, I never saw any cops, even now some 46 years later when I go back to RI to visit, I still don't see any cops, now that I miss! Even now after all these years my brothers and freinds still chat at times talking about the good old days, talking about "The Chef" By the way, a hamburger with a frie were 25 cents! Thanks for the memories.
