Joseph Yancey Track and Field – Bronx, NY

Today is September 11th, so I am posting a track from New York City and taking a brief break from the Team USA series.  The Joseph Yancey Track and Field is a beautiful new facility that opened two years ago, right next to the new Yankee Stadium.  The track and the Macombs Dam Park where its located were completely reconstructed by a parks program by the Yankees, because the new stadium is located on what was previously  the old park.  The park, track, and its namesake have a long and interesting history, which you can read about here.  This is definitely a bright sport in the track & field community of NYC, and we keep them and the people of New York in our prayers today in remembrance of the awful events that occurred on this day 11 years ago.
