Bauerle Field Improvements – Paterson NJ

Description

The federal National Youth Administration (NYA) worked to improve the stadium for Eastside High School in Paterson, New Jersey in 1938. The NYA “weeded, rolled and marked the stadium track; prepared the broad jump pit; laid out the course of the javelin and discus throw; cut and raked the field; cleaned the field of weeds and debris and cleaned the stadium stands and walked.” 18 workers completed the job in two and a half days.

Bauerle Field is part of what is now known as Roberto Clemente Park.
