Hi, Flatbush Kid: I don't know Rose Ascher, whom you referred to? Perhaps, it was someone else on this board, who was related to her? I think that Joseph Trapane may have been an ex-Marine, as he had a military bearing, and I heard that he was a Korean War veteran. A number of years ago, I heard that he was living in Florida, and I sent him a letter, in which I recalled the physical education class at 217. I never received a response back. I don't know if he is still living today. I remember that one of the gyms was smaller; it may have been the one on the 5th floor. Incidentally, someone told me that there was a secret staircase in back of the stage in the auditorium, which went up to either the 5th floor, or the area above the 5th floor. The latter area was used for maintenance, by the custodian. I once wrote how he caught me and another student up there. We were always curious as to what was located above the fifth floor, since the stairs continued. Hence, we went after school (two six year olds), and went to that area. The custodian saw us, and yelled at us. We must have descended six levels to the street, in less than a minute! Best Regards!
