82-34 Lefferts Boulevard
"This is the Bellaire Ice Cream Parlor/Luncheonette. It was owned by my father, Harry Sokol, and my grandfather, Tom Waxman. The address is 82-34 Lefferts Boulevard between Metropolitan Avenue and Abingdon Road. The site is where Rosenblum's Kosher Market is. Pictured here is me, Ronni Sokol, at age 3-1/2, and in the carriage, unseen is my newborn brother, Jeff. The woman with her back to the camera is my mother, Sybil Sokol. We cannot identify the woman standing."
