HISTORY OF PROSPECT PARK BRANCH
The Prospect Park YMCA has a long-standing commitment to housing programs and today offers affordable housing for retired sailors, echoing the work of the Bethelship Seaman's Branch that operated on the corner of Richards and Sullivan streets between 1921 and 1948. The branch also maintains a tradition of linkages with community groups such as literary societies, book clubs, and dance groups. The branch has offered literacy classes, job search training, and day camp programs for many years. The branch operated what it called an "outpost" in the Bay Ridge neighborhood and continued this work through the late 1960s.
