Best childhood memories being dropped off at night by my Dad to skate a night. It was so exciting and fun. And I don’t think the steps are still there on the river but I use to lace up my skates there. Wonderful memories

Use to love skating from the foot bridge to the canoe club and playing hockey the good old days

Omg kids having fun on ice, not any more they might fall through and get wet in 3 feet of water, I spent countless hours skating the river with friends and playing hockey, glad I grew up in the 80’s in Cranford

Skating on the river is one of the best memories I have from growing up in Cranford in the '70s...we skated before school, after school, weekends at Nomahegan Lake...always great fun!

Gregory Urban best times when the river was frozen

We got off our butts when we were young kids and played outdoors. Everyone skated! We didn’t have cell phones and computers, yet we had real FUN😊🏈⚾️⚽️🏒⛸🏂

Really miss that. M. Kominek and I used to skate as fast as we could and see who could then slide the farthest on our backs. Mike always won.

I attempted to skate there many times. My brothers were great skaters and went there all the time...Great memories...

So much fun Julie—I had a little farther walk than you did to hop on the ice. ⛸⛸⛸

That is how we learned to skate!

I moved to Riverside Drive, just down the block from where the Casino stood, 86 years after this photograph was taken

Those sure were the days !! Loved skating on the river!! Such “good fun”💕💕

I loved coming home from.school.lacing up.and walking down to.the river to skate. The boys skip used to go.down by the Tressel and play hockey. So much fun doesn't freeze much bc of pollution. What a shame.

Me too! Skated until our toes were blue! Such wonderful memories.

Borne and raised in Cranford. Skating on the river was so much fun.

Some of didn't ice skate, so we would sled off the dikes onto the river.

This brings back so many wonderful memories.

Is that the Casino in the background?
