Hinchliffe Ticket Booth
Patterson, New Jersey.
Hinchliffe Stadium was a venue used to host Negro League and ‘barnstorming’ games from 1933 when it held the Coloured Championship of the Nation. In 1934 the New York Black Yankees played at Hinchliffe. They played there until 1945 (1938 they moved to Triborough Stadium for the one season). The New York Cubans also played at Hinchliffe in 1935 and 1936.
Built by the city of Patterson in 1933 this painting captures the beautiful Art Deco ticket booths at Hinchliffe Stadium, which wear the signs and passing of time and the memories of the teams, games and spectators who once visited this great venue. Thankfully Hinchliffe is being preserved and part of a major renovation project in New Jersey which hopes to reconstruct it to its former glory to be used for both football and baseball. Like the Negro Leagues themselves the legacies of the players, teams and spectators who came here will be preserved and Hinchliffe will be a place for the stars of tomorrow to make their mark.
