The Dyckman family who settled in the community owned 400 acres of land from the Seventeenth Century to the Twentieth Century. It (the Oval) was used for New York’s leading Negro baseball and semi-pro teams during the 1920s and 1930s. It was also used for boxing and wrestling matches as well as for motorcycle races. It normally had a capacity of 4,500 paying customers."
