Backyards are few and far between when it comes to New York. The lucky have 8 square feet of grass surrounded by neighboring buildings. It isn't necessarily the American Dream. The Alvora, however, offeres a back yard only one block away. This backyard is what you may know as the Prospect Park Parade Grounds. This park used to be practice fields to some great baseball players such as Sandy Koufax,
Joe Torre, and Manny Ramirez. The newly renovated park offers more than ever before with eleven reconstructed athletic fields, including a premier baseball diamond with covered dugouts, bleachers and night lighting.
