The New Frankford Community Y, a non-profit organization, is partially housed in the Bromley-Garsed Mansion. Built in 1864 and constructed with Pennsylvania-quarried brownstone in Second Empire style, it is two-and-a-half stories with 20 rooms. In 1975 an addition, including a heated pool, gymnasium, and fitness room, was added to the historically preserved mansion. Swim lessons, for students from ages six months to adult, are divided into different skill levels and are designed as a six-week course. Private lessons are available upon request. Life-guarding courses, which include CPR and First Aid classes, are taught by certified Red Cross Instructors. Scuba diving lessons and swim team are also offered. Martial arts instruction is available to beginners and intermediates, ages five and up. The NFCY offers preschool, afterschool enrichment, Before School, Holiday/Snow Camp, and summer camp. Appointments are neccessary to reserve a space and basic youth membership is required for these programs. The pool and basketball gym are available for birthday parties and special events.
