Note for posterity

  • This article is a testament to what two people can accomplish in a matter of hours with the aid of Google, the NYTimes archives, and a little ADHD. I, for one, had never heard of this piece of property, or maybe overlooked mentions of it while reading archival material in search of other nuggets. After spotting Pacman inserting a reference to it in the Baker Field article, I was able to google it, read up on it, and whip up an article in a matter of minutes. I even discovered a whole 'nother topic for exploration in the process (the War Hospital). And I even got one point horribly wrong (confusing the historic oval with the current Williamsbridge Oval), yet managed to get that corrected too in only a short time. Pacman himself has been through here as well, while further adding to the Baker Field article. Go us. Absentminded 23:53, 23 July 2010 (EDT)
