As a follow-up to our Negro League Baseball display, a member sent me this:

Earlier this year Hinchliffe Stadium was named the 11 Most Endangered Historic Places; it’s vacant, dilapitated, and one of only three remaining Negro League stadiums in the country. In 1933, the New York Black Yankees started playing home games there, and continued to for a decade. Paterson voters approved a ballot initiative to renovate the stadium, and currently money is being raised to restore and rebuild it—if that happens, the public school system would use it, as well as the community (for concerts, and other entertainment reasons).
