Roller Skating was my life in the 1950s. When the weather was nice I would skate from Newkirk Ave to Prospect Park. That was a long way to skate but i loved it. One time I rolled over my finger while fixing my skate. My mother still talks about that to this day. I went to Empire and Park Circle Rink and was a speed skater. I have not been on skates since 1977.
