    Yep I remember that, swim all day for 50 cents!

    I don’t know if my father knew that. But, I’m confident my mother didn’t know — because she didn’t stop us from going.

    Of course, I swam there in the late 60s — it was the Brooklyn Poly pool (sort of, Poly had swimming classes there) and I remember the smell of chlorine.

    That said, I didn’t remember that it was salt water either as a child or as a college student.

    My husband and I really like Dr Trachtenberg on Lawrence st by metro tech . No frills office but he’s good.

    More like the State, I’d say. Loving authority’s the key.

    It’s the original pool but greatly reduced in size.

    I read somewhere that there once was a Yahoo group for people to reminisce and share pictures of the St. George. Did anyone archive the content before Yahoo Groups shutdown? If so, can you share it?

    I was a member briefly, but it was ruled with an iron hand by someone who acted as gatekeeper, so people couldn’t communicate directly.
