Everyone knows that New York City is the sports capital of America, but few acknowledge how great a part Queens has played in that history. From baseball and football to boxing, horseracing, and even golf, so many historic events took place on the playing fields and in the arenas of Queens. In this illustrated lecture, Dr. Jeffrey Kroessler will survey the borough’s sports landscape, highlighting the not only wins and losses, heroes and goats, but also how economic and political forces have shaped that history.
Jeffrey A. Kroessler is an associate professor in the Lloyd Sealy Library at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He received his Ph.D. in urban history from the CUNY Graduate Center, and his ML.S. from Queens College. He is the author of The Greater New York Sports Chronology and New York, Year by Year: a Chronology of the Great Metropolis.
