Summertime Fun

Peds boy with melon

    It's summer, the best time for hot dogs and watermelon and being outside at a barbeque – even if you are a child stuck in the hospital with an injured foot.  This young guy has his hands full, but when he is done eating, he has his shades nearby so he can relax in the sun.  During the 1960s, doctors from Mount Sinai's Pediatrics Department would often fire up some grills on the roof of the Einstein-Falk Children's Pavilion and hold a picnic for those children able to make it, often complete with clowns and balloons. It is hard to imagine fire codes allowing that to happen today, but it is certain the reaction would be the same: Oh, boy!
