Bronx New Deal - Photo #517 - SUNY Maritime College

SUNY Maritime College athletic field and grandstand. When originally built (as Newport Field) by the WPA in 1936-38 it was much larger and there was also a parade ground. It shrunk considerably (and was remodeled) after 1960s campus construction. Throgs Neck Bridge to Queens, and Queens itself (Bay Terrace section), in the background.
