DiMola strikes 14k gold in NY house cleanout — AGAIN!

DiMola strikes 14k gold in NY house cleanout — AGAIN! (Check out Queens rubbish removal company strikes gold in Bayside! to learn about the first time.)


14k gold teeth...found in the trash.

Now see — this is why you should brush your teeth, so that rubbish removalists like me don’t have the chance to come in and take the ones that have fallen out of your head.

I found this tiny box of gold — yes, real gold (may be 14k gold) — teeth in a dresser drawer while I was on a NY house cleanout job in Queens, New York. The lid on the box says, “Roosevelt Dental Studios Inc. in 1-7295.”

Garbage Pickup

The little box of teeth was just hanging out in an old dresser drawer.

The business started on Nov. 13, 1961, according to seravia.com, but it doesn’t specify when the practice closed. I do know, however, that it was located at 136 76 Roosevelt Ave. in Flushing, New York.

If I’ve learned one thing from this  trash removal job, it’s that you don’t need to go far far away to pan for gold — just look in the trash.

  1. Wow, does P-Diddy know you raided his dresser?!?!?!?!?!

  2. Roosevelt Dental Studios in Flushing, NY is probably near Macy’s Department store.
    There are (were) many businesses on the upper level of the street level stores.

  3. Hey DiMola Bros., I love your blog. Did you ever think of going on American Pickers TV show on the History Channel? It may be good way to promote your business too. Also, I live in Ridgewood, is your collection open to the public?

  4. […] THE LATEST ON WASTE DISPOSAL: DiMola’s trash collection of antiques keeps growing with 1940s tool chest […]

  5. eww! The question is what did you do with it after???
