As a kid, I lived on the 3400 block of N. Claremont. Next to us was an open lot. Well, not just an open lot; it was actually a tree-filled yard (it still is) that was the property of the people who owned the building just south of it. In the winter, one of the neighbors in that building would hook up a hose from the basement and flood the big yard to make a big ice skating rink.People in the houses on either side of the "rink" would put their radios in their kitchen windows, all tuned to the same station, to provide music, and various neighbors would bring thermoses of hot chocolate.
