The park opened at E180. the path ran to The Farm In The Zoo..East to what's now the Bx river parkway.Half way in there were two huge bathrooms M/W.They had room for at least 20 customers.A huge 50 X 125 feet band stand/dance floor stood.It was enclosed by a roof.Born in '44,and in the park often,I never saw this space used.Of course ,some time in the '60s ,the bathrooms were burnt down.It must have been a big attraction in it's time. But I never seen a word in print about it.But if your old enough ,and remember it,speak up
