Comments: I got married on April 22, 2001 at the Chateau Briand.

Vince Cassidy - 1966 - - Fort Lauderdale, Florida - 2001.07.07
Memories: Graduating.
Comments: In January of 1970, during a snowstorm, I went to Ghost Motorcycles in Port Washington, and bought the fastest motorcycle available to the public at that time. Since I had never even SAT on a motorcycle, let alone RODE one, I told them to deliver it to my house. 2 months later, I was on the road... imitating Michael Parks in the then popular TV show, "Then Came Bronson"... and heading for Florida and a warmer climate. I mention this because it is a prelude to my first career.
From 1972 to 1984, living in Tampa, Florida, I was heavily involved in motorcycle roadracing throughout the state. As a racer, over those years, I was the state champion in several classes... from 125cc Grand Prix to 1000cc Superbike. At the same time I was doing that, I was also a freelance journalist/photographer covering all the races held on that given day, at that particular track. The race reports & photos were sold to local newspapers where the races were held, and to national motorcycle newspapers. I was paid by the race promoters, as well as by the newspapers. I was also a freelance artist for 3 national motorcycle magazines. They paid me for whatever artwork they used. Up until approx. 1990, a large painting of mine was one of 2 paintings forming a backdrop behind the news anchors on a national cable TV motorcycle show called "MOTOWORLD". It was on USA Network back then, nowadays it is on ESPN2.
Then one day in 1984, I got on my motorcycle and rode away from it all. I moved to Fort Lauderdale, and started a whole new career in cable TV. I started out as a contract installer, and several companies, years and jobs later, have worked my way up to an in-house Head End Tech, for a local cable company. I keep the channels looking good, just prior to them going out into the field to everyone's TV sets. I maintain 16 Head Ends in 3 counties in South Florida.

Memories: We would all walk to school along the same route and I would join my friends as they passed our house - one of the few non-Levitt houses in town...
... When we started the school radio station in a small closet and hung antenna wires in the halls that enabled the "station" to be picked up several blocks around the school. We would play Simon and Garfunkel when we knew the principal was listening and Firesign Theatre when he was not!

in memoriam, Jimmy Dunne - 1972 - by his sister: - 2001.08.05
Comments: My brother Jimmy graduated from DAHS in 1972. He passed away on Aug 10, 1996. He was the best brother anyone could ask for. My last visit with him in New York we stopped in front of Division and took some great photos. We also got to walk along the board walk at Jones Beach, something we had not done in 30 years. We ate at the Empress Diner and visited Saint Bernard's Church, where soon thereafter his funeral mass was said.
He loved Levittown and had many many friends that he kept in touch with from high shool. Some were his pall bearers and spoke at his funeral.
Jimmy was the strongest, funniest, kindest, man I have ever known. Even to the end when he was dying from AIDS he always cared about how I was, and did not want me to worry about him. He was quite simply 'The Best'.
I know he will get a kick in heaven to be included in this virtual reunion.

Memories: Mr. Amen and varsity baseball; streaking at the drive-in (can't remember the name!); great friends.

Looking forward to the reunion next week.

Eddie D'Hondt - 1977 - - Cornelius, North Carolina - 2001.08.10
Memories: Integrated Studies Class comes to mind. The atmosphere Mr.Goelz and Cestaro set that class in, was a mature one and a good learning experience for what lay ahead. I made a lot of friends in that class. I also enjoyed the Varsity baseball team quite a bit. We were a good bunch and had a great time.
Comments: Currently, I am and have been involved in NASCAR Racing for the last 5 years. For the last 3 years I have been the General Manager for Bill Elliott Racing and I am now venturing out and starting my own Busch Series Team to debut in Daytona February 2002.

Barry Bienstock - 1967 - - Long Island - 2001.08.17
my webpage:
Looking for: Some of the non-in crowd
Memories: I wanted to relate a few things from my perspective of attending D. A. H. S.
I find that the 75% of the things I was taught, I seemed to retain about 80% of the education. In my adult years, that was in engineering, and life experiences, I met younger kids out of school. They seemed to have had better grades, but retained about 20%, making the generation that I was graduated from, the people that resolved the problems, and challenges of professional opportunities.
My years at Division were actually not happy ones, mostly because the school had a culture away from where I was at. I can sum it up like this. By day, the cafeteria had a mural of a surfer dude. The classmates were jocks, and penny loafers with white sox.
My night life was going into the East Village, and seeing blues bands, Frank Zappa, and being with what later was called Hippies.
But at my school, I was not cool to the world there. Island Trees District 26 had more opportunities for art-related aspects, music was much more progressive. Luckily, I was involved with the girlfriend, who was in the top honors at Island Trees, and we attended the NYC club scene together, ice cream parlors and coffee houses.
I will share this as well... These days, I am involved in media-related aspects, and any search engine can show what and who I am, under ZENBOCK. As a spoof, my son and I work together, and my son is 40 years younger than myself.
My memories of Division were fighting, bullies, and gals who had no depth being shared in the hallways of the school. With Vietnam raging, I was appalled at the social realizations politically out of Levittown. But my fellow classmates were not in tune with the real information. Only decades later, did the officials later (McNamara) state we were involved in a no-win situation. Division had a long-running flag at half mast, for upper grades men that died in that non-war.
My happiest day was a hot June graduation day in 1967, leaving the headaches and meanness of the students behind me. I will admit I liked a handful of un-cool people at the time, and even a few of the elite crowd. Peace to all, Years hopefully mellowed some of the graduating class of 1967.

Tom Selleck - 2001 - (bad e-mail 2003.03.27) - 2001.08.18
Memories: My first splendid memory was when Three Men and a Baby came out. After it came out me and Steve Guttenberg came to Division to talk with my fellow peers and sign autographs.
A bad memory was when everyone called me monkey boy because I'm really hairy and my mom couldn't afford a razor.

Johanna Romero - 2000 - - 2001.08.19
Memories: Being in 9th grade and not having to worry about anything but who you're going to make friends with. Just easy riding it... Mr. Laterza and his "El Wrongo's" and spritzing mouth showers; Mrs. Barret and her "However!!"; Mr. Garraty's sweetness; Mrs. McDonald's laugh; Mr. Wieczerzak's dance (hands up); Mr. Hahn's "Jo Romero" and easy person to trick hehe; Senor Capo's thoughtfulness, sweetness, compassion, and dedication... enough... college is now great. hehe. ^_^ Anna Brady's Mexicana, Mike Cillo's non-girlfriend, Bridget Hammer's child to pick on and beat up, Steve Squire and Galaxy, Tom Saint and his ego, yeah... i'm sure there's more, but, for now, that's who I remember... oh, and Gael from France, cool kid he was... ^_^

Dwight Powers - 1966 - - Long Beach, NY - 2001.08.24
Comments: At the 35th reunion of the class of 1966, reunion organizer Mr. Barnet Silver spoke of some of our classmates whom had passed away. Some of these folks I had previously known about. He mentioned Sal Saitta as one of them. Sal was a good friend of mine from Summit Lane on. We played soccer together on every team since 5th grade (he was a much better soccer player than I was). We even worked together during high school in Primelight, a dank and filthy warehouse in Hicksville. I'd run into him once or twice after high school and we had lost touch over the years. I was really looking forward to seeing him again at the 35th reunion. Then came the news that he had passed away. I am truly saddened by this news. Sal was a good and decent person and a good friend. I can still vividly remember when Sal lost his father, when we were 18. Sal's dad passed away at 38 years old of a heart attack. Sal was affected greatly by this and I can still picture him up at the Green, attempting to drown his sadness with a quart of Rheingold. I and many others tried to console him then, as best as we could. Now, I must console myself on Sal's passing. Sal, old buddy, you are missed!

Partying in the pipes at Azalea and rockin' the pool afterwards. Every years graduation night - and what we can remember of them. And of course the get togethers with the boyz and girlz of Lums (and you know who you all are!!)

Things to forget forever - One that sticks in my mind was the bad haircut and attitude of his highness, Jerry Jewell (yuck!!)
Comments: Who I found through this site - My dear Sisters and party partners Penny Schiller and Christyyyy Mc, Cathy MC, and all the rest of you folks from Lucy I.T.S.W.D.'s theme park world!

Memories: Great memories include: being in chorus, band, and the musicals; concerts and cast parties; the mock presidential elections in 1972 and 1976; hanging out in the band room; spending hours at Mays (the department store that had everything, including the world's greatest knishes!); school trips to New York City (remember when we saw Ed Sullivan walking down the street alongside our bus? I think it was the time we went to see "Pippin"); working on the yearbook; Mr. Danhieux's biology class.

There were some wonderful and inspiring teachers at DAHS (I particularly remember Mr. Danhieux; Mr. Reynolds; Mrs. Novak; Miss Gokey; Mr. DeFilippi; Mr. Kaufman; Mr. Miller; Mrs. Wieczerak) but some spectacularly awful ones as well (to remain unnamed!), not to mention a bunch who were just plain mediocre.

We must have faith in our president regardless of our own personal politics, stand behind him in his and our nation's hours of need.
I would like to let the people who have lost loved ones know that our nation feels their pain. And to the firefighters and police men and women who lost their lives our country salutes you.

Going to the Saturday home football games and then trying to find out whose house(s) the party was at afterwards. Watching the guys jump the fence at Azalea to go swimming at night and then getting chased once again by the cops. We really weren't bad kids. Why were we always running from the fuzz? Hundreds of Vanasco's parties. Getting out of Brothers Pub and panicking because the sun was coming up. I could go on and on. I had fun back then and I'm still having fun. Ann Champney where are you?

Memories: The most recent and best our 35th reunion. Thank you to Caryn and Barnet for a memorable and fantastic event although agreeagly tooooo short! I need to get up there more often. It was great seeing friends that I walked to school with, sat next to in homeroom or classrooms. The name tags were too small for our aged eyes so we had to take a closer look, that was funny. When are the pictures coming out?
As for memories of old, surfing with Tommy, Jimmy, Brendan, TJ and of course Frank. I found an old album of a "surfing safari" with my brothers and Rickie Byers - funny. He looked like a doo wop kid. Hanging out at the green and getting in trouble. Partying with Christy. Playing doll house with Kathy Mills when we were little.
All the sports, did not have fond memories of Ms. Garlick though. The football game with sorities.
I too have fond memories of Bunny in New York and he visited me in California as well, a sweet, happy, true spirit.
Comments: Everyone at the reunion looked better than High School. Can we all play together again real soon? Lets have small reunions around the country so everyone can be together. Love you Dee

Comments: Recently attended our 35th reunion. Barnett and Caryn did a wonderful job and I know that many others worked with them so I want to say THANK YOU. It was wonderful seeing so many from the class. Some I recognized right away others I am sorry to say I cound not recognize. Some probably looked at me and asked themselves "who is that chubby, middle-aged woman?" I ask that every time I look in the mirror. Truthfully, in my heart you all looked so beautiful, and I enjoyed watching everyone have fun. I missed our 25th and can't wait for our 45th. So why not have something in-between? I know 40th seems to be the one, but that seems too far too. Life is much too short, and I don't want to wait that long. Frank M., you are indeed a talented artist. Bob R., you look great. Millie, what a beautiful spirit. Fran, you have a great smile. Henry, thanks for the dance you're great. Hope to see you all again soon. If you write I will answer. Love Tish

Memories: The times spent at Memorial. Division was great, but all the time prior at LMHS was the greatest. Those are my fondest memories. Our group had a lot of fun times together (Joann, Laura, Jeannine, Christine, Angela, Kim and all the rest of the crazies). The walk-out was interesting, the saddest was when they closed Memorial and we were not able to be the last graduating class.

Donald Filippelli (now Donald - I'm not sayin') - 1975 - - Merrick, NY - 2001.11.29
Looking for: Annette Kramer, Merry Schneider
Memories: Very happily married to Helen Mancura for 23 years, living in Merrick for 22 years with a fabulous 6 year old son.
It was the best of times / It was the worst of times. All the good times and good memories I have are in spite of the school, the administration, and the sadistic athletes that were allowed to prey on "the freaks".
If it wasn't for all the "queers and faggots" (as we were lovingly called every day) in the art and music department, the plays, Studio Oz, the bands I was in and all the incredible music of those years, I don't think I would have made it out alive.
(That and a ton of pot!) When people started shooting up their High Schools I thought, "gee, there's a bunch of guys who are lucky my dad didn't have a gun cabinet (and you know who you are). BUT... 26 years later, I've completely forgotten about it.
Thank goodness for the enlightened schools of 2001, due to zero tolerance for this crap, my beautiful 6 year old son will never be subjected to what all of my friends had to put up with every day. I even changed my last name so I can stop hearing "hey Filippelli you f--king queer" every time I hear my own last name. (Pretty ironic considering my wife and I, together since 8th grade, had more [fun] in high school than the whole school combined) It's funny but because we were in a war zone, most of my friends stayed together for a very, very long time, like old war buddies. By the way, it was great to see everyone at the last 2 reunions. The Amityville bar get together was a blast. (and I'm glad to get this off my chest and out of my head!!!)

Nancy Nugent - 1971 - (bad e-mail 2004.05.15) - Dallas, Texas - 2001.12.14
Memories: Growing up in Levittown is appreciated so much more now that we are older... the safety of our neighborhood, our friends and family where our lives. Even though we move on, Levittown, DAHS and our old friends will always have a place in our hearts. I found a picture the other day from Northside School and the bike parade... the town I'm living in now has the same type of parade every year... it brought back memories. Any of you who are wondering... YES I'm still a jock! I don't think that part of me will ever change. I had plans on attending our 30th reunion, but moved to Texas in July. I'm so disappointed I missed all the fun. This was the first reunion I've missed. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Wendy Clark flew into Dallas and we spent time looking thru the Website at all the reunion pictures and we had a few good laughs and realized… we would have loved to have been there… next time we will be!!!

Shop teacher John Murphy bending an iron bar around his neck to demonstrate to his "unruly" students he was the ruler of the class and disorder in the class was not acceptable -- and then not being able to unbend it without the help of the "unruly" students. The "Dap" hitting a blackboard so hard with his fist chaulk dust came out of the cracks. He was a great teacher. The North Green, Gilgo Beach, Montauk, Ditch Plains. Joe behind the counter at the Green with his kaiser rolls, plain sodas, Big Cat and everything Dwight Powers has said in the post on chapter 7 is true - thank goodness for statue of limitations. I disliked it, yet loved it and the people there. Fond memories to sit back, laugh and smile abou.t
Comments: This web site is one of the best sites I have ever come upon. I thank who ever created it and all those who contribute and reply. I am sorry I was not able to get back to the reunion, but since being pointed in this site's direction, I have found 5 good friends from my past.

Jeff Howard - 1974 - (bad e-mail 2004.05.15) - Chapel Hill, NC - 2001.12.25
Memories: Growing up with wonderful friends. Enjoying activities both in and outside of school. Music, sports, parties, dating, building friendships and learning about the world together.
Comments: I'm living in Chapel Hill, NC. Except for a 3-month stint in Austin, have been here for 9 years. I took a sabbatical this past year and spent 3 months traveling across the US. An unexpected treat was catching up with Debbie (Davis) Horn in Colorado. I'm still close friends with Bruce Frankel and have been in touch with Jay Hallett and Jayne (Boyer) Marra. Hoping to make a trip to Long Island during the spring of 2002 - it's been over 15 years since I've been back.
Best regards to the people I have fond memories of but haven't been in touch with. -- Jeff
