History

The Armory Foundation was created in 1993 to rehabilitate the 168th Street Armory in Upper Manhattan from what was then an underutilized military installation and overcrowded homeless shelter into a vital resource for the children and people of New York. Led by Norbert Sander, Jr. M.D. and Michael Frankfurt, Esq., The Armory Foundation has raised $24 million in public and private funding over 13 years to transform The Armory into a world-class track and field facility and a multi-purpose community center.

Today, The Armory Foundation is home to:
The New Balance Track and Field Center :a 60,000 square foot arena and Olympic caliber track - one of the fastest tracks in the world

The National Track and Field Hall of Fame :an inspirational museum and interactive sports and fitness learning center

The Charles B. Rangel Technology & Learning Center :computer based literacy programs for young children, technical skills training for middle and high school students, and GED and ESL courses for adults in the local community

Numerous Community Partners including: The Police Athletic League - community center for students and adults, The New Heights Neighborhood Center - employment development center for youth who have not finished high school, Growth Development Services - year long mentoring program to provide underserved adolescents at risk, from local community and Project Renewal - NYC Dept of Homeless Services managed 200 bed men's shelter

Healthy generation is very rare now, this is due to the fast food culture. It is good to hear that The Armory Foundation is a nonprofit association which is working on tracks and field to build a good future for America. I appreciate for your effort.windows8transfer.com
