I bought that patch many years ago from a place called; "The Finest and The Bravest" in the Bronx. That store was located on Eastchester Ave, and later moved to Kingsbridge Ave. I'm sure many on here still remember that store. I still have that E85/L59 patch along with many other company patches that I bought.

  But that was the place where I picked it up at. A lady by the name of "Roz" was the owner of the business.

Around 1984 wasn't that store under an el somewhere in the Bx? Can't seem to think of the street name.

Willy.......I seem to remember "The Finest & Bravest" (in 1981) being located on Kingsbridge Ave. 236/237 Sts. (1st fl of a 6 brick)The cross streets could be wrong but i am sure that i am in the neighborhood. It closed and then was reopened on Eastchester Rd.  Roz and her son Kevin were always accomodating to the Buffs. I also remember after leaving the Kingsbridge address, we almost always took in a fine meal at Ehrings which was located on the southeast corner of 231 st and Godwin Terrace. I miss those Chops and smashed potatoes !!!!!

Yes, my friend Bxboro is right. That store was right across the street from a Micky Ds and opposite the 52 Pct House. ESU 4 ran out of there also.
Memory, the street the EL was over was Broadway. I think it's the Number 4 line ?
I think though the store was first on Eastchester, then Roz moved to Kingsbridge.

  Yes, I remember that also. Alot of years have passed by since then. "Bxboro" was just a young kid.

  The Tin House, The Finest and The Bravest, The War Years, The South Bronx and Bushwick, The Blackout. For anybody who was a buff, it certainly was a great time to be around. Myself, "Bxboro", and "Johnd248", all know each other and live in the same general area. There's a few others around too that have been there. But to most people, they have no clue of what went on then.

  I guess when you really think about it, there really is some advantages to being old like our good friend, "mikeindabronx".

There's a store on Tremont and St. Raymonds called Paul's. There's another one on Kingsbridge by the 50 PCT. I forget the name of it.
