The Roosevelt Stadium was one of Hudson County's largest funded project under the federal Works Progress Administration and was built for $1.5 million. It is best known as the stadium where Jackie Robinson, 27-years old broke the "color line" and became the first African-American to play major league baseball. Major 70s and 80s band played there (Beach Boys, Eric Clapton, Tony Bennett, Grateful Dead, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Pink Floyd, Eagles). It opened in April 1937, instigated by the infamous Mayor Frank Hague, and was demolished in 1985 to make way for Societal Hill condominium development.
