I was up there myself and they were graves and a fence around then like a small family grave yard and not a part of Fairmount or just head stones but graves.

It was said that men who died working on digging the canal were from Germany and were all single men. They were buried there and that's how it got it's name. That's what I have heard anyway. I saw a house just west of the cemetary. A small frame house and never though anything about it. Then others saw it and others didn't see it. Last time I looked I didn't see it.

A great picture. I myself never ate there but we had that type of resturant in other areas of the city. There was one on east 79th street run by two old ladies and the food was fabulous and that was back in the 60's also.

Yes I remember it well from the 50's to the 70's I went skating there. It was the world's largest roller rink and had a giant Wulitzer pipe organ played by the Famous Leon Berry. Just hearing the organ was a great experience alone. It had drums,bells,horns and all kinds of instruments outside it and you would see and hear it like a great orchestra.

It also had an iron fence aroun

Does anyone have information on the "stroll"? It was from 26th st. to 39th st. on State Street. Very little is left. I think a building on 36th or 37th is still standing.
