  • 100 Greatest Moments at NY's Armory

    The building that houses the Armory in NYC is celebrating its 100th Anniversary early next year and the event is being commemorated with the day-by-day release of "The 100 Greatest Moments in Armory History". The series began a few days ago and you can catch up with the early "moments" (and great photos) at:http://www.armorytrack.com

    I don't know about highlights, but here's the lowlight:

    In May 2006, Ed Small was fired as director of T&F at the Armory -- even though he WAS the Armory. I wrote about it back then:

    But I have good news to report: Ed and assistant Sharon Warren, also fired by Dr. Norbert Sander, settled their age-discrimination lawsuit again the Armory Foundation for a big chunk of change. The settlement has not been made public, but it's evidence that Ed didn't up and quit, as Norby first suggested.

    Of course, nobody wants to talk about the Elephant on the Track: the evil treatment of Ed and Sharon or the condition of the National Track & Field Hall of Fame at the Armory, which Norby uses as a moneymaking gimmick.

    Recently, a friend of mine took his youth club or high school athletes to the Armory on a Saturday to visit the Hall of Fame. He was shocked to learn it was closed that day.

    So much for the Armory supporting track and field.

      I have Ed's email address if anyone thinks this is worthy of investigation.

        Reminder that if you're in town for Millrose this weekend the Hall of Fame always worth a visit at the Armory.
