    I went swimming every summer morning at 10 0 clock As a child this was a country club. Growing up in the city in summer, this was as good as it got . Let’s not fotget the free milk on 115 st. They had away of making life feel good with so little much this generation has out of. Dolores Janevero

      Right in front of the Jefferson pool was a large fountain with running water. It was not for people but for horses. I went to Jefferson pool daily and yes for the free milk on the corner of 114 st and first ave. I lived across the street from Mt Carmel Church. Yes I went to Mt Carmel grammar school. My friends father made the statues in Mt Carmen Church and he lived on Pleasant Ave. I remember the area very well. I remember buying a sweet potato off a cart for 1 penny each and they were ready to eat.

      Great memories
      Vincent
