Park Memory: Vivian Berger/1940s

“This is me at age about three during the great snow of 1947. My father used to take me out sledding. He would pull me and I would say, ‘Faster, Daddy!'” I grew up at 105 Arden Street, just across the street from the lower entrance to the park. I played all the time in the playground that was about at the level of Dyckman Street. I spent a lot of time in the Cloisters, too. I loved Fort Tryon Park and will always have great memories of it.”
