Batavia Street And "The Gym"

from Larry Sweetster
Hello David
I have read the recent article of Batavia St. The first photo is Batavia St. looking towards the school (The wards map will confirm this) Actually my brother pointed this out to me.
The second photo is a 1945 photo of what we knew as "The Gym".. where we go as kids to play checkers and other board games.. on the 2nd floor the older kids played basketball. Also you might remember from that  1951 aerial photograph of Smith houses if you looked closely just to the right of 10 Catherine slip you will see a piece of gym.
