Sarina Roffe, interviewed May 30, 2012, Brooklyn Borough Hall:
My favorite memories from growing up in Bensonhurst are playing street ball and street games with our Italian neighbors. I lived on 69th Street between 21st Avenue and Bay Parkway, and all of the kids, and all my cousins would go to the Marboro Theater, and we would go for matinees and my mother would give us fifty cents for the theater and enough money to get popcorn and soda, and we would spend the whole day there. Every Jewish kid in the neighborhood was at the Marboro Theater. It was just the most amazing, amazing thing. After school, we played street games and the Spaulding was our favorite, along with stoop ball. Growing up in Bensonhurst was fun.
