Summer of '61 & '62 a bunch of us went to the Cascade pool on 168th and Jerome during the day and hung out around Taft at night. By the end of the summer of '62 a couple of the guys in the crowd had cars so we shifted to Rockaway by the end of the summer.

Pool room was normally Hess on 167th off of Walton. A new one opened up at 167th and the intersection of Jerome & E L Grant so we gravitated there as well. There was also one on 170th & Jerome we frequented once in awhile.

Bar was Chics on 167th right off of River Ave. I started drinking there when I was 16 in '62 and the bartender was really PO'ed at me when he finally asked me for proof of age 2 years later. Left that all behind in fall of '65 when we moved to Queens.
