Crotona Play Center entrance, 20 October 2017. It's closed for the winter; originally it was kept open all year round; during the off-season "the bathhouse serves as a gymnasium. In freezing weather the pools are ice-skating rinks and at other times serve for paddle tennis, shuffleboard, volleyball, basketball, and handball" [June 24, 1936, Press Release].
