A Special Fathers Day Story

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I was thinking about a special Father’s memory to share with you. One of my more memorable Father’s Day experiences occurred a few years back when my dad took my brother and me out to Coney Island for the day. The first thing we did was catch a Brooklyn Cyclones game, the minor league affiliate of the New York Mets. To be honest, it was not the baseball game that I found to be exciting, but just the atmosphere I was surrounded by. I still remember my dad pointing over the left field fence and saying “That’s Astroland, the amusement park that my uncle once owned”. What followed was a lecture on all of his favorite rides, and I could see that he was getting so much enjoyment out of sharing these memories with us.

 

The real journey came though after the game, as we strolled down the Coney Island Boardwalk. We literally could not walk for thirty seconds without my dad pointing out a great place he used to frequent as a youngster. We stopped at a diner to eat dinner at around 7pm, the same diner that my dad would eat at as a kid. “Just the way I left it,” he said satisfyingly. I could tell because the décor looked like something out of a 1970’s film. Then it hit me, this is what my dad really wanted for Father’s day. He didn’t want to go on an extravagant vacation, but he just wanted to spend the day with his children, and share a memorable part of his life with us. Remember that when you’re out hunting for a Father’s Day gift over the next week. Maybe you can’t make it out to your father’s hometown for the day, but instead try ordering the Jewish Deli Food Crate or a copy of the sports history book titled Great Jewish Men. Use this as a spark to get him to share a story with you about something he cherished as a child. Not only will it make you closer with your dad, but maybe one day you’ll be sharing the same story with your children.
