JHQ: Alma Mater may expand by Gaelic Park


Manhattan College has expansion plans

Manhattan College is planning to expand its campus within the next decade. The plans could include buying two lots on West 240th Street between Irwin and Tibbett Avenues, just across the street from Gaelic Park.
College officials have not finalized a master plan, or made the draft public, but an April article in the college’s newspaper

The Quadrangle explained that officials want to expand their science-focused south campus and further integrate it with the main campus. That would require the college to purchase the lots on West 240th Street, which include Karl’s Auto Body and the now-closed Riverdale Auto Body.

The article also quoted Andy Ryan, the college’s vice president of facilities, as saying he was “reasonably confident” the school could acquire the land.

RIVERDALE, N.Y. – The Manhattan College women’s basketball team will be featured on ESPN3 twice during the 2015-16 season, and both contests will take place at Draddy Gymnasium. Manhattan’s home games against Saint Peter’s (Jan. 21) and Monmouth (Feb. 11) were both selected as a part of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) broadcast package.

This marks the first time since a matchup with Marist on Jan. 25, 2013, that the Manhattan women’s team will have a home game shown on ESPN3. The Jaspers have never previously had two contests at Draddy Gymnasium broadcast nationally in the same season.

“It’s extremely exciting that we’ll get to play a couple games on our new green court on ESPN3,” Head Coach John Olenowski said. “I’m also happy about being able to play with the men’s team on these nights. Hopefully we’ll have a large crowd at both games.”

Both games will start at 5 p.m. and immediately precede a contest involving the two-time defending MAAC champion Manhattan men’s team. The Jasper men take on Monmouth (Jan. 21) and Quinnipiac (Feb. 11) at 8 p.m. each night, with both of those games also being broadcast on ESPN3.

[JR: I’m marking my calendar. Maybe if the get good ratings, then they will be invited again?]
