G. Gallagher is absolutely correct. Kelly park on East 15th St and AVE S. The entrance was of Ave S about 150 feet east of East 15th ST. Walk in, and we had swing sets all the way to the left against the 15th St Fence. In front of that on the left of entrance was what I recall were paddle tennis courts. Behind the paddle tennis courts to the north and west were some stone Chess tables. On the right side of the entrance, we had a full court basketball court and all the way to the right, or up against the BMT line were two hand ball courts. beyond the basketball court going north, you and a large open feild area that was paved in blacktop With two softball diamonds. A homeplate on the North East corner of the field and one on the southwest corner. As I recall, the size of the field was somethink like 250 or 300 feet east to west and about 170 feet north to south. To the north of the softball field were I believe 6 or 7 tennis courts. Spent many a summer day playing softball, stick ball, Squash and tennis at this location.
They must have fail Geography too. Both Cunningham JHS., AND Kelly Park are on Ave.S and E.15th and E.16th Sts,
I think that was the name of the concrete park we used to hang out in early 70’s It was around Eastern Parkway and broadway We played handball there,and There was a softball Field there. Pretty rough place Sometimes I remember going with a friend to see our girls play softball against another team and as we were entering the park a gang of ruff’s aproached us to jump us I think, after a brief encounter the girls team came running over with there bats in hand and squashed the problem Those brooklyn girls are alright
