Irisha or Italiano – The Iacone Family – The Long Beach Years No. 07 – October 15, 2017

The Long Beach, New York years were relatively easy to deal with because this is the era when I came into the family. Most of the pictures represented below are primarily the Iacone family. All these pictures were taken while the family lived at 28 Tennessee Avenue in Long Beach, New York.

The home was literally six houses away from the Atlantic Ocean. after Labor Day weekend, the streets were empty for the rest of the year. On a winter’s night, the winds would howl when a Nor’Easter storm came in. The eaves of the wood frame house would howl in the winds.

Joe Iacone and Nettei (Tessario) in Long Beach, NY

Joe and Nettie Iacone lived on Mulberry Street when I first came into the family. I was invited to their home on Mulberry Street and the meal of the day was Manicotti baked in one of those old-fashioned ovens. It was a huge kitchen and had a huge kitchen table where all the

Marie’s family and Joe and Nettie Iacone’s family could sit down and eat. On that day, I believe that I ate about ten+ manicotti…they were so delicious and she was a great cook.
