It is a crowded place so the Hall of Fame is actually a hallway. But if one stops they can see the names of some great athletes. I am sure all of these men and women actually competed on the same track my kids were running on.
There is also a glass case with actual artifacts. Most were athletic in nature, like the shoes that were driven to an Olympic Gold Medal.
There were also pieces of real history, like the sweater vest worn at the opening ceremonies of the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin
Before any of those boys were born, I ran track for Sheepshead Bay HS.

Our uniforms never looked that cool. Then again, from 1977 to 1981 I don't remember ever winning a meet, let alone setting any national records.
