"Like every seaport village, Port Jefferson had its gin mills, and this now quiet store was the site of the local "watering hole" during the shipbuilding days. The real name was the "Holbrau." It became Greg Grammas' Sweet Shop and Ice Cream Parlor during World War I then an antique store." (Submitted on November 7, 2019, by Thomas Mocera of Centereach, New York.)
