Comments:

I have many happy childhhod memories living on Culver St. We would play outside all day, riding bikes, playing dodgeball in the street, shooting marbles, I remember a game we played called "hide and go seek tag", walking to school in the snow, the ice cream truck, walking to 7/11 picking up coke bottle so I could get some candy, duckpin bowling and, of course, my best friend Patti Acton. I also remember you Chuck, you were in my 6th grade class, Mr. Rich was the teacher. I found myself in one of the class pictures you posted under Sandymount. Thank you for the great web site, I have enjoyed looking through it and taking a trip down memory lane.

Not sure if this is the same Ritchie Vitto, but I believe it is. He passed away last month in Phoenix. He had a younger brother named Bobby and another named Stevie.
His obit is here http://www.heritagefuneralchapels.com/content/obituaries/view.jsp?OID=100161 but they did leave out the T in his name (Ritchie). I was good friends with him back in the 1960's in Naples, Italy

riding bikes and walking all over, walking to the mall

Comments:

I have seen a few familiar names in here and the memories are great. I remember walking to the mall by myself, no worries. I got my ears pierced there. My mom worked at the People's Drug store, I loved visiting there. I attended Sandymount Elem. for 4th 5th and 6th grade. Miss Krupa was one of my favorite teachers she was my 5th grade teacher. I remember some names like Becky Lee, Patty Turner, Gayle Winston, Linda Fortunato, Cecelia French? Shirley French and Steve French were older than me but my brother Mike Ling was friends with them. My brother went to the jr. high that was close to Sandymount, 7th, 8th and 9th grade. He also played sports Silver Hill Boys Club. I remember the winters me and my brother would go door to door with our shove shovels shoveling people's walks, making a little money and then going to the mall.
Dad got transferred to Ohio in 73 and this is where he retired from the Air Force and here is where I still am.

Comments:

I was searching for the possibility of the recipe for Steak in a Sac and found this site. Brings back lots of memories. I moved to Ca right out of High School, and then most recently to the Pacific Northwest, which my husband,mu dog Ralph and I love. Oh, haven't found the recipe. My family must have been to Steak in a Sac a million times.
Thanks for putting up this site.

UPDATE ON HILLCREST HEIGHTS SAFEWAY CLOSING - I can confirm that the original Safeway in Hillcrest Heights at 2346 Iverson Street will close permanently for business on Saturday July 16, 2011 at 6pm. Unfortunately for the neighborhood there is no word on what, or if, a supermarket will replace its spot. It would be nice if someone could take photos for those of us who can't be there.

I lived in Marlow Heights in the mid-late '60's. I loved Steak in a Sack. Haven't seen one since. I was combing Google looking for copycat or original recipes to no avail and ran across your site that said "Make the original." Couldn't find it.

Any direction you can point me to would be appreciated.

What a shock to see a site about a place I lived for some very memorable years of my life.

Comments:

I remember so much from my childhood on 27th Avenue down the street from Benjamin Stoddert. I always watched clothing trends even from the time of being a young child. My brother and sisters would be at school and being the youngest I would watch everyone walking home from Stoddert. I remember the guys wearing Mac pants, banlons and high top chucks. The girls would tease their hair, wear long leather jackets, dangly earrings with a ball on the end , fishnet stockings and slingback shoes. My big sister wore that look with the frosty lipstick until my parents decided that fishnet stockings looked trashy and put her back in Catholic school.
People in the neighborhood probably remember my dad for two reasons: 1) The kids would fall into our hedges on their way home from school and my dad would chase them up the street screaming obscenities at them except my middle sister who was able to clear those hedges , easily jumping over them without ever touching them. (She was voted Most Athletic at Stoddert). And the number 2 reason ( a much more beautiful reason)you would remember my dad is he would practice clarinet with the window open in the summer and you could hear it all the way up the street. He played in the President's Band (Marine) and we are honored to have a pic of JFK with my dad sitting in behind him holding his claranet.
There is so much to say but I will leave it there for now.

Some sad news - in or around July the old Safeway at Hillcrest Heights Shopping Center (2346 Iverson Street) will be closing permanently. The number for the store is (301) 423-6464 if you have questions. I don't have any further information yet. Still have relatives in the old neighborhood and word is spreading. The pharmacy department within the store has already closed. Sad to see this remnant from the past leaving us. Many of us got our first jobs there. If anyone has time to take some photos, please share them with us.

I moved to Oxon Hill in 1965 when I was in 9th grade. I worked at Hecht company in Marlow Heights for several years while attending college. I shopped alot at Marlow Heights and Iverson Mall. It was fun seeing the photos you put together on this web site. Although it was MANY years ago, I remember alot of it. I used to eat at Red Barn, but might not have remember what it was called until seeing it on the site.

I have a previous entry. I'm looking for elementary school group photos, especially from Miss Hudson's class, Mr. Colabucci's class, Mr. Taylor's class, and Mrs, Jordan's class.

If you have one, email me for my address and sent it in a tube or stiff envelope so I can photocopy it for the website and then return it to you.

Remember the ant farm in the new edition hall window that allowed us to observe the ants and write reports on their behavior?

Comments:

We moved to Hillcrest heights around 1969-70. Moved around 1978. It was safe enough to walk the streets at night. Does anyone know what happened to Gary Wilson? or Tommy Wilson? They lived right next to the mall off of Iverson St. They worked for Roy Cummings Painting Co. next to the Mall. Gary Married Terry Ketchall. She had a sister named Pam. Not sure if I spelled the name right.

My mom worked at the information booth at Iverson Mall. I would roam the mall unsupervised at age 9 & 10. I came in second place in a Hot Wheels Derby there in 1971. At the mall, there was always some little kid getting lost from his/her mom, and someone would bring the kid to the information booth. Moms would not be in a panic like they would today in losing thier kid. Sometimes they were downright mad at the kid, nevermind worried at all. There was a pet store there at the mall that sold mynah birds and monkeys, among other animals. This was my favorite hangout at the mall while I waited for my mom to get off of work. Temple Hills -- we would walk up Spring Terrace and down St. Barnabas Rd to High's. If you were lucky you'd find a bottle to return for an extra nickel. Twenty-five cents would get you a nice soda and snack, then you would walk home, over the Beltway overpass and back up Spring Terrace (or was it Spring Dr.?) There were kids all over the neighborhood, playing ball in the streets, playing in each other's yards, etc. I lived there until 1972 when I was in 5th grade, and my family moved to Florida.

Going to Red Barn, hanging out at Iverson Mall shopping with girlfriends

Comments:

Those were the days..hanging out with our friends, having a good time, and just being kids. I remember working for the Star Newspaper, selling subscriptions over the phones, working three hours a night and three on Saturday morning, that was sweet. We worked over in a building in Fleshman's Village, do you all remember that place? Remember drinking in the parking lot sometimes, and smoking our cigarettes..HAAHAHA I drove a Gold Dart Swinger, my girlfriends and I would pile into the car, and drive around looking of course for the guys. We would ended up at Red Barn that was the hang out. You could go there and find out if there was a party happening in the area for Friday or Saturday night; it didn't matter if you knew the people, you just showed up. Life was different back then. A lot of things have changed, but I truly believe that the people who grew up there, are the same today as back then. At least I hope so.

Comments:

Being the last of the former greasers (we didn't use the grit name) who later grew his hair long. We wore the Banlons, Chucks, and Bags or baggies (workpants). My Brother and I used to hitchhike to Langley Park to buy our Chucks because they were only 14:00 . Our parents wouldn't buy them because they were too expensive. We wore Peters, but mostly leather coats (not the motorcycle kind)which we got at Wilson's Leather at PG Plaza. We of course hitchhike there so we could have enough money to go to BigBoys for a hot fudge sundae.

Comments:

I grew up in Camp Springs Maryland lived off of Camp Springs Ave for 17 years. We always went to the Marlow Heights Giant and we used to go to Iverson Mall all the time. I find it interesting that before I was born that Marlow Heights had been there for so long. I still go to that Giant and I am always at the mall. I love the new Burlington, it will always be a place where I have fond memories. Thank you for starting this site it is very interesting to see someone else has history here too.

Comments:

Thanks for building the site! It was always a special treat to go shopping (especially Christmas shopping)at Marlow Heights. I was only 6 or 7, but I remember always looking forward to a stop at the Red Barn ("When the hungries hit, hit the Red Barn") for a Barn Buster. Always had to split it with my younger brother, but that's OK, I don't think I often finished my half! :-)

His Peters Jacket

Comments:

I have been trying to purchase a Peters Jacket for my husband, for I can't tell you how long, as a birthday surprise. He has talked about them for years. Now I'm thinking of making him one. Is it possible for you to take pictures of the jacket and email them to me, so that I can create a pattern? He specifically talks about the two button collar, the lining on the inside (only within the sleeves), the leather tassle on the zipper, the inside pockets and the buttons on the outside of the jacket at the waist on the sides; and on the sleeves. Any information or design elements you can provide would be most appreciated...I can't believe I found your website. Thanks.

In 1963 Marlow Heights was a lovely place to live. Marlow Plaza, evidently the tallest building around, was where I and my husband rented our very first apartment when we arrived in Prince Georges Co. He was starting dental school in DC and I my first job as fourth grade teacher at Sandymount. We were essentially, at 21, still children ourselves!

I thought the PGC school system would be a backwater, ill equipped district but when I visited Sandymount for an interview, prior to graduation from college in NYC, to my delight I found it was a new, modern school with all the up to date equipment and books that any teacher could wish.Mrs. Crittenden, the principal asked me if I would mind working in an integrated school. Of course not, I said...thinking what kind of question was that to ask anyway? As a Yankee, I sensed that maybe I was in deeper South than I had realized. I wasn't sure what she had meant when, after I started working, there wasn't a black face on the faculty... then I wondered if she may have meant Jews....because for the first time there was a Jewish teacher, 2 actually....Mr Rich...and myself. Paranoia, maybe?

I recall that one year when I was teaching the required social studies curriculum unit "Christmas around the World", I decided to include the observance of the Jewish holiday Hanukkah because there was a Jewish child in my class...inclusivity, diversity...what a concept! A parent of one child in my class complained to Mrs Crittenden that I was "teaching the horns". I had no idea what she meant by that...but evidently she was offended that I had brought the idea of Judaism into my classroom.Later I was told that uninfored people believed that Jews had horns hidden under their hair...a mistranslation from ancient texts and misrepresentation on Leonardo's sculpture of Moses which was based on those mistranslations. I was told that she made a habit of complaining about things at school and had terrorized and intimidated many others besides me. It blew over but I, as a new young teacher, lost sleep over it.

It was a time of high racial tension in the country and the District.The day,August 28, 1963, that my husband and I drove from NYC to our new apartment in Marlow Heights coincided with the gargantuan March on Washington, where MLK gave his"I Have a Dream" speech on the National Mall.Our parents were really worried about our journey but it was uneventful.

Our apartment at Marlow Plaza was the most luxurious thing we had ever lived in and all for only $135 a month. We had AC, a laundry room on every floor, carpeted hallways and a swimming pool for the use of the tenants only. This was a real steal compared to the rents back home.We were truly grateful for our good fortune to be living in such a lovely neighborhood for such a small price. ..so close to my job and the Mall!. ...The Mall actually saved our marriage. The very first meal I cooked for my husband in our new home, I made hamburgers...but evidently not te same way his mother had made them. He said some unkind words about them and I stormed out of the apartment and walked across to the Hecht company and did some damage to our starter bank account as revenge....even though I was the one earning money while Stu was in dental school. Still, retail therapy...as they say.... worked and we've been happily married now for almost 48 years.

Stu still practices dentistry, 2 days a week. I retired from teaching in 1967 when Stu graduated from Dental school. We then lived, and luckily sat out the Vietnam conflict, in Quantico VA for 2 years and had our children there, while Stu served the Marines and Navy as a Dentist. We moved back to Long Island and I became a stay at home mom for many years.Thanks to his profession I had the luxury to follow my bliss in a variety of part time jobs until I went back for my Masters in Library and Information Science in the late 80's. I became a children's librarian and worked in a very large public library on Long Island for 13 years until we sort of retired and moved to the Berkshires in Massachusetts, where our children and grandchildren all live. Now I and Judy Fraser Turbin bake little cakes and sell them at the summer Farmers Market here in Williamstown. We talk often about the good old days at Sandymount where she and I became lifelong sister/friends. If anyone remembers us, please write to BabyCakes2468@gmail.com

Why no mention of the Waxie Maxie's record store right next to Steak ina Sack? I opened the store in the early '70s and I think it was there whan I left in 1990. The Khalid family owned Steak ina Sack. Great people...Zack and Dennis. I lived in Camp Springs at the time. That whole area was great but eventually changed. All good things come to an end.

Hello! My family moved from New York to Marlow Heights in 1965. I was 2 1/2 years old. We lived in the Marlow Plaza (apt. 314) (on Saint Clair Drive behind the the Drug Fair) until 1981. I went to a nursery school behind the Federal buildings in Suitland (the ones with the radio dishes) off of Silver Hill Rd. I went to Sandymount Elementary School from 1968 - 1975 for Kindergarten thru Sixth grade. One of my favorite teachers at Sandymount was Mr. Tillett, who was my sixth grade teacher. I attended Benjamin Stoddert Jr. High from 1975 - 1978 for 7th grade to 9th grade. I was an exchange student abroad for the 1978 - 1979 school year. I then attended Potomac Sr. High from 1979 - 1981. I graduated in 1981 from Potomac. My favorite teacher at Potomac was Mr. Solanki who taught Physics. His classes interesed me in Astronomy. However, I majored in Computer Science at the Univ. of Md. Mr. Solanki still taught at Potomac when I took the tour of the school in 2009 with the group. (I also went to two other get-togethers at the Steak N' Sack in 2009.)

I have too many memories of my Marlow Heights times to list. They are mostly good memories, but a few not so good. Among the good ones, I enjoyed going to the Rides (the Carnival) every summer in the parking lot of the Marlow Height Shopping Center. I also enjoyed going to the pool at the Marlow Plaza during the summers. My family sometimes ate at the Orange Bowl in Iverson Mall. Their pizza and orange freeze drink were my favorites. We used to go to the Clinton regional park during the summer for picnics. My favorite part in our trip to Clinton was driving past the airfield and cornfields in Clinton. I assume neither of them are there now because of development.

My father worked as a satellite operator, beginning in 1965, in one of the Federal buildings with the radio dish in Suitland I mentioned above. We moved to Greenbelt in 1981 after he was mugged on his way to work. He then commuted from Greenbelt to Suitland until he retired in 1995.

It was nice to read the guestbook entries of people I was friends with or knew very well. Hopefully in the future, more friends and people I knew from my Marlow Heights times will sign the guestbook as well.

What a great place to grow up. Born and raised in District Heights. Lived on Ramblewood and Lansdale. Walked to school everyday rain or shine. Played CYO baseball with great guys from Marlow Heights and Temple Hills. Hung around with Jim Shumate, Tim Nichols, Joe Bell and Leo Martinelli. Cruising the Pike and heading to the liquor store on Naylor because they never checked for an ID. Racing up and down Silver Hill road. Joined the District Heights VFD and ran a ton of calls to the Marlow Heights area. Always cool to run under the Iverson Mall walkway and listen to engine hit the Jake brake and see the shoppers scramble. Lots of great memories.
