Pete Krupp Least we forget Broadway a/k/a Joe’s Pizza. Some great times were had there before and after the Greenleaf, Pinewood or Terminal. I didn’t distinguish between locals or student establishments. A cold adult beverage was a cold adult beverage no matter the source. 72 – 76.

FJohn Reinke For this injineer, the Greenleaf was a required rest stop after Theoology with Father Bruce. With my head filled with “dannny lew” and the ways to know God, Teilhard de Cardin saying science leads us to God, and being called a blundering barbarian from down the hill to tortue the Arts Department, I needed to wash away my sins. Argh! Times were so much simpler then. I didn’t patronize the Leaf when I was in High School, they checked proof; whereas the Terminal was content to over charge us for the ‘water of life’. Argh! So much simpler.

Ed Maher Anthony, Downey’s was the name of the bar up the hill from Overlook…’70 – ’74. One of the owner’s sons (I think his name was Mike) was a Jasper…class of ’76 I believe.

Peter Muszynski I remember when they were the only bar you could get Coors, because of the difficulty in delivering. We would be packed in like sardines to get a beer that wasn’t really that good.

Thomas Emmett Flynn By our time, the mid-sixties, The Pinewood was the place to be! The Greanleaf and Terminal had sunk beneath raunchiness. And then there was The Broadway Deli next door to The Pinewood where I labored weekends making the best hero sandwiches in NYC.

FROM MANHATTAN COLLEGE ALUMNI GROUP ON FACEBOOK

Paul Francis
Yesterday at 6:27am

Sung to the Air Garryowen.

In Riverdale upon the height
it’s there you’ll find the green and white
The Jaspers are the town’s delight
Their victories, they are storied

(Refrain:)
When on the court or in the field
No Jasper team shall ever yield
our pride is fierce, our hearts are steeled
On Jaspers, on to glory

For Brother Jasper we are named
a humble man of timeless fame
and in our hearts his lessons framed
will write our gallant story

(Refrain:)

Brave Jaspers, raise your voices high
to move the earth and shake the sky
for old Manhattan, do or die
On Jaspers, on to glory!

(Refrain:) repeat twice

# – # – # – # – # 

Paul Francis
Yesterday at 5:52am

and so it was necessary to write down a Manhattan Fight Song!

Onward Manhattan
Onward Boldly to the fight!
Jaspers forever proudly wear their green and white!
Onward Manhattanever fearless face the foe
With all Loyal Jaspers cheering….Go Manhattan!
Go Manhattan!
Go!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOO Jaspers!
GO!
