Memories of Bayonne past
Mayor James Davis recalled an encounter with two residents while driving them to get their vaccines during a snowstorm.
“Recently, I had the privilege of driving Bennett and Susan Klausner to Bayonne Medical Center for their vaccines,” Davis said. “Ben’s dad, Sam Klausner, was the owner of Sam’s Confectionery on 4th Street and JFK. As a young boy growing up downtown, many of us spent quite a bit of time in Sam’s store learning how to play pinball and drinking cherry Coke. Bayonne has many families whose lives intersect, and these stories are part of who we are!”
