I really appreciate all of your efforts to keep this alive.  It is June 2007 - We are all so fortunate to have this website. Thank you Carol & Skip! Having been inspired by the class of 1957, I have been working with a few classmates to plan our 50th Class Reunion for 2008.

Eckstein, Stanley -  - Great Neck, NY

Edelstein, Larry -  - Parsippany, NJ

Great job you're doing here Skip.

Because of this site I found my old friend Dave Schnitzer who I have not seen for 35years. Last night my wife and I got together for dinner with Dave and his wife Jackie and reminisced about old times. It seems he is only living about an hour away from me in central New Jersey. Small world and getting smaller all the time.

I graduated from FRHS in 1958 and I also would like to post both of my sisters names on the web site.

Elaine Edelstein Abes graduated FRHS in 1950 lives in Boynton Beach, Florida and
Renee Edelstein Simon graduated FRHS in 1954 and lives in Coconut Creek, Fla. They can both be reached at

Keep up the good work.

Larry can be reached at

Thanks Larry for writing. I'm happy to hear that you have found an old friend. I never envisioned that this site would attract as many former graduates as it has. I will continue to keep it growing as long as I can afford too.

Friedman, Ellen R. - - New York, NY
I teach bridge and direct duplicate bridge games at the Manhattan Bridge Club; I am a docent at the American Museum. A chance encounter with put me in touch with Nick Pandolf and from there to the 50th reunion of the class of 1958. OMG 50 years - how did that happen? Those 50 years have been interesting for me. After graduating from college, I entered the world of business and economics publishing but after 18 years of that, I moved into marking and communications for financial institutions. I lived in Frankfurt for a year and London for two years in the mid 70s (a truly magical time) and have been back in NY since. I am retiring on Septbember 30 after 46 years in the work force - and I am ready to be a lady of leisure. I would love to hear from any of my fellow graduates. It's been a long time but would love to know how things are going. A special thanks to Judy Binder and Barry Aronowsky for all their efforts to bring this reunion into being.

Feinberg, Edward -  - Congers, NY

Feinstein, Barbara (Gilbert) -  - Berkeley, CA
I'd love to re-connect with classmates and FRHS of which I have so many fond memories. I hope to attend the 1958 class reunion in 2008. 50 years is a long time but in some ways it truly feels like yesterday, particularly as I get older and more nostalgic. Thank you to the makers of the wonderful website.

Schindlinger, Sandra "Sandy" (Haftel) -  or  - Venice, FL
Judy Binder called me today and 50 years vanished in a flash as I remembered all of you and those wonderful FRHS years with love, joy and pride in your and our achievements. What a school it was -- what a class it still is. I look forward to seeing all of you at our 50th reunion.

Sheldon, Rodney (Harvey) -  - Sherman Oaks, CA - Deceased October, 2011


My name is Harvey Sheldon, Class of 1958. Right after graduation, I changed my first name to Rodney, which would have been my birth name had some obscure uncle not have died two weeks before I was born.  Everyone of my friends, business associates and family know me as Rodney.  I attended NYU and Hofstra College and in 1962, I moved to Los Angeles, California.  For a decade lived on both coasts, maintaining residences in both Manhattan and Malibu. In 1971, I gave up my new York apartment to live, full time, in Malibu. In 1982, I left the beach and moved to Beverly Hills.

I was in the music business, promoting rock n' roll concerts, in the wonderful sixties, and for the last twenty seven years I have been a writer-producer in Hollywood, working for most of the studios and all the networks.

I have often wondered what happened to all of my wonderful friends from FRHS; I have lost touch with all of them. It would be wonderful to visit the pleasant memories of the past and I invite any of my old chums, and/or classmates, to contact me. If I could get a list of class of '58 E-mail or home addresses - with or without phone numbers, I would be grateful. Also, I'm looking for anyone from the class of '58, especially Mel Klein, Ben "Duke" Lechtman, Stuart Drell, Howard (Gigger) gersh, Howard Schwartz, Marty Feuereisen, Arnie Ackerman, Willie Hamp and L.C. (Larry) Johnson. Also looking for Barbara Kaufman, and beautiful Rochelle from Neponsit, and anyone else I used to hang with...

Please add my name and pertinent contact information to all of your reunion lists. This is quite a wonderful thing you do, creating a conduit to the past where our characters and destinies were formed.

Hope you continue doing this important work. I trust it brings you the same pleasure as it brings to so many others. I sincerely thank you for your efforts. With my very best wishes.....

Rodney can be reached at FarRockflm or at his mailing address which is 153 S. Camden Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90212 - Phone 310 859-1177

Thanks Rodney for writing and for your kind words about the web site. I've enjoyed every minute of the time spent on it. It seems as if it has brought a lot of people together. How about a photo to go with your letter?

Dear skip; What a wondefull suprise, the web site is great.  Those Rockaway days with the sand in your shoes were the best. The wife and I (kids grown) live in Manhasset and East Hampton. We plan to retire this summer and move to Jupiter FL and would love to hear from old friends for the Class of 1958.

Thanks for all the effort exerted in assembling all the info on Far Rockaway.  I have a problem.  My memory is failing, so I'm not sure of dates any longer.  But I believe I attended the Class of 1956.  I dropped out before the end of the term due to insufficient credits toward graduation, and the desire to join the service.  I eventually acquired a GED in the service.  If anyone from the Class of 1958 remembers me please write and let me know.
