Letters to the Editor

Nuts and Bolts of a Neighborhood

Dear Editor: I remember Joe and Flo Leopoldi as a young married couple from growing up on Fifth Street in Park Slope. The Leopoldi and Fenimore families were always rich in faith, family and tradition. Reading the article about their family hardware store brought back some wonderful memories. Blessings to all!

Dear Editor: A wonderfully written article about a beautiful family. Glad to know them all these years. I worked for Joe and Flo, 1968-69, at the candy store called “The Place” on Fifth St. and Sixth Ave.


Chesapeake Beach, Maryland


Dear Editor: Our family shopped at this store when it was Fazio’s back in the 1940s and 1950s. I lived on Seventh St. between Fifth and Sixth Aves. The best hardware store ever. As a matter of fact someone told me last week I should stop by this store for something I need.
