Summary

Summary

The Lost Neighborhood is a nostalgic and fun trip back into time. It's location a typical inner city neighborhood found in a hundred similar towns of the 50's.The characters are made up of the kids of the block and their families. Kids with names like Big Chet and Mugsy who run the neighborhood. Families with Mom and Pop and Grandma who just don't understand what's happening, and think their kids are going crazy.

All of a sudden new stuff like television, rock and roll and cool clothes come on the scene. Elvis, Annette and Davy Crockett become household names.

Follow a neighborhood kid who lives on the block as he becomes part of the 50's. He makes a pledge as an eight year old secret club member to never like girls, and he is haunted by this oath as he moves into the 60's.He has to ask Big Chet for help to break this oath.

If you want to ride along hop in, but you gotta chip in for gas. Let's go!
