Riverside Park New Deal Sites - Photo #23 - 72nd-78th Street

Baseball field in Riverside Park, about 78th Street on the lower level, one of twelve ball fields constructed in Riverside Park as part of the New Deal West Side Improvement, 1934-37. The park still has all 12 ball fields that were announced in 1937, some refurbished (e.g. with artificial turf), others still natural like this one.
