It was rumored that high school seniors used to steal that big red arrow as a prank.

Hey, can any one tell me where the shopping center with the giant arrow in the parking lot was? My mother had a very good friend that lived a few blocks from there, but I can't remember where this shopping center was...thanks!

You forgot Sandia Base, now Kirtland AFB. Yes, I am an army brat. Folks ended up retiring here in Abq. Lucky for me. I remember when Montgomery Blvd. was a dirt road, Uncle Cliff's was waaaay out in the boon-docks and Rio Ranch was just a developers dream.

San Gabriel had the best keggers and cruising! Does anybody remember the Zodiac club in Barelas -corner of 4th & Bridge? It was across the street from El Cambio's grocery store. I lived next to the store on Simpier Lane.
