Place Matters Profile

In 1907 the Brighton Beach Baths opened on the site of a former amusement park. The bath's activities included swimming, tennis and entertainment. Yiddish vaudeville theater dominated the stage, and a carousel provided an additional attraction. The baths were demolished to make way for housing in the mid 1990s.
