In the 50s Orchard Beach was the only place we could go in the summer. People stayed in there sections; my area was section 13.
We would catch the bus on Webster and 3rd Ave. The bus was so crowded that you couldn't move. When you got to the beach, it was so crowded that you were lucky to fine space to put down a towel. Coming home was another horror story; long lines to get on the buses. But it was better than "Tar Beach" or the "johnny pump".
