    Poughkeepsie NY? Does it brown out early in fall? Lots of rhizomes and stolens? Creeps? My guess is Bermuda grass. A tough customer.

    mostly kbg, rye and fescue, bermuda isnt popular but the lawn was from the 1950's so it has a many types of grass

    Are there any good recommendations to kill this bermuda grass without effecting the other grasses...?

    Without some major focus on the photo, it appears to be the common Bermuda (Cynodon Dactylon) variety. It can even be Nimblewill, as it favors and looks the same as Bermuda.. Hard for me to tell with that picture...!
