I was born & raised in Boro Park off of 49th St. between
15th & 16th Ave.'s.  Spent a great deal of my time in the
Bensonhurst region of Bklyn. where my closest friends were
from.

Cypress Pool in the early 60's. They played all the hits on
the outdoor speakers. If I was lucky enough to have some
extra money I'd get a snack.
I never got up the nerve to dive off the high board.
There were always lots of us kids to talk to. The place was
always packed on a hot day.
It was interesting to look into Bennish Brothers Stone Works
on the way to the pool.

HEY SHARKY, I NEVER DID THE HIGH BOARD!!! I WAS ACCUSED OFBEING CRAZY, BUT NEVER STUPID!!!  THEY HAD THE JUKE BOXRIGHT OUTSIDE THE GAME ROOM, IF YOU PLAYED THE GAMES BEFOREDRYING OFF YOU GOT SOME TOUGH SHOCKS. WE DIDN`T LOOK INTOTHAT STONE JOINT!!!  WHAT WE DID WAS GO ON TOP OF THELOCKERS, OVER TO THE GIRLS SIDE.  MUCH NICER THAN LOOKING ATROCKS.

Yes, I remember riding our bikes all the way down Bushwick
ave to Jamaica ave and then over to the pool. Once we moved
up to lower reidgewood we would ride out on Cypress ave and
then down snake hill to get there. Soon after that they
turned it into a private club.
