Mid-City Swimming Pool 1950’s

Mid-City Swimming Pool  1950's

Mid City Swimming Pool was a large private pool, located on Broadway in Menands, just north of Albany. It closed in the early 1960’s and was replaced by a shopping plaza. It was just below the large Montgomery Ward building.

    You had to love the slotted floors in the locker rooms…you had to be careful taking off your pants or all your change would fall through the cracks. A few of us would crawl through the lattice work to get under the locker room floors. It was all sand down there and we would sift through the sand looking for change.

    OMG, I’m delighted to see this picture of my favorite swimming place growing up. Spent many days there. swimming and baking in the sun .Lots of sunburns …remember well.

  3. My Dad was good friends with the owner and we always go in for free. Loved going there with them and spending the day swimming and going down the two tall sliding boards and them catching me and my brother. I also remember that scary when my brother hit his head on the slide and it knocked him out. I also remember the lagoon along side and their home and an old roller coaster. Thanks so much for showing this wonderful memory.
