The Pit

YMCA, Grand Rapids

The Pit was downtown GR.There was the “Pit” which was in a church at the corner of E Park PL St. and what is now Library street. It was packed on Friday and Saturday nites so they opened up another site “The Pit 2”. This was in the YMCA then was located on Library street @ Sheldon. They then opened a “Pit 3” in the YWCA on Sheldon St. (between Fulton and Weston St). It got to be a bit too much but we trolled from one to another during the summer of 65.  Bill Merrick
