Kennedy Stadium Bridgeport CT ... Roosevelt Stadium Jersey City ... 

Ah, yes, Gaelic Park: Van Cortlandt Park stop on the IRT Broadway Line. I lived in a 4th-floor apartment a block and a half away when I attended Manhattan College. It had an unobstructed view of

Cornell and Rose Bowl

Alumni Stadium at Boston College (Mission Drums)

I have a vivid recollection of the chapel bells beginning to chime as the Springfield Marksmen were performing their color presentation of  "I   Believe";  a real Twilight Zone moment.

Then again, perhaps this was just a dream. (No, not THAT one.)

I know this is a new topic and there have only been 6 replies but I'm still astonished that no one has mentioned Roosevelt Stadium!!  Fond memories of the dust and the heat but mainly the crowds, the nuns and getting a  beer when I was only 16....lol  Sadly now its  a condominium complex🥺

Randall's Island, the OLD stadium, not Icahn.

It was accessible by taking the Subway to Harlem and either hopping a city bus or just walking across the bridge.There must have been a hundred shows there from the '50s through the '70s.

My last visit was in '76. for VFW Nationals. Garfield won prelims by 3 points or so, but the Cavies took finals by a couple of tenths. I took the "A Train" home that night.
