Actually, the pool club was called Fieldston Bath And Tennis club. The skating rink that it became in the Winter was called Kelton's.
We went to the pool club for 2 years when I was in about 5th and 6th grades. The strongest memories I have of the place was the smell of Stella D'Oro as they baked their cookies about a block away. And the fact that the "cabana" where you would change and store your stuff was about 4 feet square and made entirely of metal. It would be burning to the touch. Just to get in and to sit to put on clothes was torture.
Pool was nice and big, I believe Olympic sized, though.
