    I worked at that record store on Montague and would buy my bagels at the place next door. And, Netties was where you went to buy “stockings”and gifts for your mom. JoMels was the very best place to buy toys and I still miss them.

    Poor Guder! Not only does he get a lump of coal in his stocking, but he gets left off of this list.

    How is it tallied, by views or by comments?
    There were probably so many different dock st posts that it spread out the comments.
    If by views, is it only counting unique visitors?
