Van Cortlandt Park - Photo #20 - Van Cortlandt Stadium


The Van Cortlandt Stadium: the 400-meter track. In the background is the Van Cortlandt Public Swimming Pool, which opened in the 1970s; it is not one of the famous eleven WPA swimming pools that opened in 1936[1], but it was built with a federal grant[2].
