Joan Rivers on growing up in NYC: "Everybody knew everybody, and everybody was a doctor. It was a great place to get sick."

To show how stories in the November/December 2014 issue of Evansville Living fit into the broader world, this edition of Link Up brings the Internet to you.

Everyone has a growing up story. It’s hard to beat, “I would ride my bike from the East Side to the near South Side with a .22 caliber rifle across the handle bars and a pocket full of ammunition ….” Leave it to Joan Rivers, who died on Sept. 4. In an interview about memories of growing up in New York City, Rivers told New York Magazine, “We went to Howard Johnson’s, and Ellen smoked a cigarette. We’re sitting at the Howard Johnson’s, and we’re smoking cigarettes — say no more.” Other celebrities, too, shared quirky memories.

Santa’s Candy Castle surely is one of the most unique candy stores you could visit. You can try 31 flavors of hot chocolate and a caramel nut treat called a Reindeer Shoe.
