Catskill, New York Historical Events

Growing up in Catskill
I grew up in Catskill and remember the chestnut trees outside my grandparent's home, (Mr & Mrs. Seth Cole) on William St. The kids across the street came to help knock them down with sticks. we'd gather them in bag full and make people out of them with tooth picks. The alley way which us kids would call it. We'd race each other up and down. The Hudson River could be seen from my grandparent's house. These are the days that I can recall from my childhood.

If my memory is accurate, my kindergarten teacher was Miss Ford and when I graduated to the first grade, I had a Miss Dodge for a teacher.

Recollections from the 1930's
As a boy scout, I marched across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge at the celebration of its opening. Governor Herbert Lehman was there to give a speech. It must have been somewhere around 1933 or 1934, when I must have been in the scouts, but I couldn't say exactly when. I remember FDR coming to the Community Theater to speak when he ran for governor and, of all people, Jack Dempsey addressing a crowd in support of Roosevelt for president. That was on the corner across from Haines' Garage.
