Athletic Field Renovation Underway

After decades of neglect and erosion, the South Shore High School athletic field, unpopular with athletes because of its sparse, rock-strewn surface, is finally getting a major overhaul. The field, on Flatlands Avenue and East 78th Street, will get a complete makeover, including natural grass surfaces for separate football and baseball areas, as well as a rubberized track. The multi-million dollar project, which began this week with the removal of trees (above), is being paid for with public and private funds, and is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
