Vincent Arcuri, Full Interview
Collection: Queens Memory Collection at the Archives at Queens Library
Description: Vincent Arcuri is on the Community Board 5 where he speaks about the history of Glendale and how it's demographics has changed over time. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Vincent Arcuri, Jr. has spent practically his whole life in Glendale, NY. This locale and its surrounding areas form the backdrop for many happy memories, from playing ball and attending dance halls to hanging out in local bars—bonafide family establishments in those days—and enjoying meals with his large Italian American clan. Mr. Arcuri forged a 40-year career in construction and had a hand in building some of NYC’s most important structures. Now retired, he continues his longtime involvement with Queens Community Board 5 and other volunteer organizations, as steadfast as ever in his conviction that civic engagement is the foundation of a strong community.
