Roosevelt Raceway (harness Racing) - Today

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:

    But today I set the bed afire
    and smoke is filling the room,
    it is getting hot enough for the walls to melt,
    and the icebox, a gluey white tooth.
    I have on a mask in order to write my last words,
    and they are just for you....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    We had to take the world as it was given:
    The nursemaid sitting passive in the park
    Was rarely by a changeling prince accosted,
    The mornings happened similar and stark
    In rooms of selfhood where we woke and lay
    Watching today unfold like yesterday.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
