Reader says I am writing to say how ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS the water at Graydon Pool was this summer.

Graydon Pool Ridgewood

I also believe Daniel Cramblitt, Assistant Superintendent of the Park and Shade Tree Department, should be commended for the SPARKLING CLEAN water at Graydon this summer! His turning over of the sand to kill algae spores and prevent algae growth, a new chlorine pump, and the fact that he was at the pool often to inspect, supervise, and answer questions, made a HUGE difference in the water quality! It seemed to have brought in more people this season as well!

Ridgewood NJ, on Friday  Ridgewood Firefighters “A” Shift did some Tower Training at Graydon pool .  Hope none looking at these pictures has the fear of heights .

The name of phobia of heights is acrophobia, which is commonly defined as an extreme and irrational fear of heights and high places. Although it is often confused with vertigo or the spinning sensation that is observed when a person looks down from a high place, acrophobia is actually more than just height vertigo.
