I spent many a happy summer day there swimming and fishing. I remember a white platform that we swam to and then jumped or dove from. My fishing experiences there were limited to a few small bass and lots of blue gills.
I remember there was a road, submerged, out in the middle of the pond.
My dad an SI native told me that he had been an extra in Peril of Pauline movies that were filmed near the pond. He also told me that in the winter ice was harvested there.
