From one of our website visitors . . .

I was raised in Midland Beach, when the beach was packed and swimming was fine and clear, clean waters. A frozen Milky Way from the concession stand on the boardwalk as your feet burned on the sand. Pete DeVita's Dept. store for school supplies and Christmas shopping with your allowance. Cle's butterfly stitches and Miss Cini's 2 for 1cent penny candy. Hoping on my bike with Mary on the handle bars and Bobby on the back. Roller skating in the park or down the beach. 50 cents zeppoles at Pizza Clown (Pizza Town), and of course Nunzios pizza. Temptee Freeze frozen sundaes for a nickel the next day and Goodies hamburgers.

South Beach

South Beach was the first permanent settlement on Staten Island, originally named "Oude Dorp"
meaning Old
Village. It was a little colony located at the shore end of Ocean Avenue, on the banks of
Old Town Creek. This first settlement on Staten Island was established in August 1661.

If anyone was around in 1905, they will remember this restaurant at
102 Ocean Avenue, it was the predecessor of
The Surf Club
Louis Gardella, Larry Gardella & Victoria Rossi
 

 


South Beach Boardwalk Concessions
(Notice The South Beach Pennant)

 

 


Other, wrong photos of the Tirelli Carousel have been published but this is the one that the
Tirelli Family has identified as being the one they operated
on the South Beach Boardwalk until 1956

(It was built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1907 at a price of $8,000)
