During the summer of 1958, most of my friends left Flatbush for the "country" or other geographic points. The Flatbush branch of the Brooklyn Public Library on Linden Boulevard was my salvation. It was a short walk from my neighborhood at Albemarle Road and East 18th Street. It was air conditioned and I could squirrel myself away in one of the single seat desks in the stacks. It was easy to get lost in many books on different subjects. The summer of '60 was a humid one as I recall. Although I visited the library during this time, I was more adventurous and went with this friend or that to enjoy all that (mostly) Manhattan had to offer.
