Never too hot.....we had so many options.....tar beach (rooftop) where we had cold lemonade......(yikes,
no sun-blockers)....We had Miramar Pool my dad took us to....we had Cascades.....summer activities in
P.S. 82......Orchard Beach....gosh, a much better life then suburbanites who needed to be driven to
every place ....
Of course the country was an escape (Catskills) and camp (Bronx House Emanuel). I feel so, so
lucky to have been raised in the Bronx...even though we didn't have air conditioning, just a window
fan and a fire escape.
