One of my most favorite recollections of "food" at Playland was the hot chicken pies. I have yet in all my -- years tasted anything quite so good. It was a special treat for my Dad to take us all to Playland and buy those yummy pot pies and sit by the ocean. I can still remember the feel of hot,deep, paper plate sitting on my lap with all the wonderful gravy and delicous pie. Anyone else remember that? The other special treat was my Grandfater picking up out Yum Yum and bringing it to our house. That tasted better than any kind of caramel corn I've had since. Everytime I go to the City and see those apartments sitting on Playlands Sight I get a real sense of loss and nostalgia for what used to be.
