Then & Now: St. Mary’s Gym

The gymnasium at St. Mary’s Seminary in Garrison, where young men trained for the priesthood in the Capuchin Franciscan Order, is shown in the early 1960s and today, with participants from the men’s pickup games held on Monday nights at what is now the Philipstown Recreation Center doing their best to recreate the scene.
