StatEN ISLAND TRACK RUNNING AND COMMUNITY
Rending belongs to the Department of Parks
When completed, the indoor track at Ocean Breeze Park can do more than contribute to the health and well-being of Staten Island, indeed all New York City, residents. If operated and marketed properly, as demonstrated by the indoor track at North Carolina A & T State University, the track can also have an impact on the economic health of New York City and surrounding communities.
North Carolina A & T is located in the charming city of Greensboro which has a population of 270,000.
In 2009 and 2010, the school hosted nine regional/national meets which had an estimated economic impact of $38,922,000 or $4,324,700 per meet. An average of 4,600 athletes and spectators needed approximately 2,590 hotel rooms and 11,700 restaurant meals per meet. Marketed properly, the demand for a world-class indoor track in New York City, the tourist capital of the world, can be expected to be much greater.
