I remember going to the Avalon Movie Theater with about 10 friends and seeing West Side Story. What a fantastic movie with Natalie Wood. We got out of the movies and we all started dancing and singing on the Highway, "When you're a jet, you're a jet all the way...." What energy, what youth, what fun. We should all feel as happy and joyful as in those days. We were not afraid to be silly, sentimental or excited. Let's keep up the good times and appreciate that we were lucky to have had such an amazing neighborhood to grow up in. Kings Highway was so awesome that people from Lincoln, Lafayette, New Utrecht, Midwood and other high schools would join us on Friday night hanging on the highway and being part of what would now make an amazing movie.
