Remembering The Past: Elizabeth Memories

Remembering the Past by Diane Norek Harrisonby Diane Norek Harrison

ELIZABETH-The following is from Peter Boroff after finding my columns on Levy Bros.:

“I moved to Elizabeth in the 1950s. My father, Max Boroff, was the manager of Levy Bros. for 41 years, working for Milton Levy and then his sons. My memories of growing up in Elizabeth are all positive. It was great time for Elizabeth. My father passed away in 1967, and upon his passing the Levy family paid the tuition for my sister, Nancy, so she could finish college.

“I remember playing organized sports. I especially remember the softball game, Levy Bros. against Georkes, in the Port of Elizabeth.

“I remember the great Christmas season on Broad Street,the windows and Christmas lights.”
