Roosevelt Raceway (harness Racing) - Today


Little remains of Roosevelt Raceway, other than the name, which still graces a shopping center and movie theater located on the former parking lot. The actual race track was at coordinates 40°44′23″N 73°35′50″W / 40.739722°N 73.597112°W / 40.739722; -73.597112Coordinates: 40°44′23″N 73°35′50″W / 40.739722°N 73.597112°W / 40.739722; -73.597112. The site of the grandstand and track which lay vacant for years is now the home to a luxury condominium complex, Meadow Brook Commons, which began operation in 2006. The area to the east, now a Home Depot, was the location of the stables. The last plot of Raceway property was converted into the Archstone Apartment complex.

Famous quotes containing the word today:

    These native villages are as unchanging as the woman in one of their stories. When she was called before a local justice he asked her age. “I have 45 years.” “But,” said the justice, “you were forty-five when you appeared before me two years ago.” “Señor Judge,” she replied proudly, drawing herself to her full height, “I am not of those who are one thing today and another tomorrow!”
    State of New Mexico, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    There is no such thing as an ugly language. Today I hear every language as if it were the only one, and when I hear of one that is dying, it overwhelms me as though it were the death of the earth.
    Elias Canetti (b. 1905)

    ... today ... photographers prefer disfigurement to adornment. It is now chic to do your worst to people.
