The Rink in Chatham

The video above from WBEZ is about The Rink at 1122 East 87th Street, in fact just across the street from the former stock car race track shared with you last week.

I hate to say it I've never been to The Rink. In fact I've never learned to even roller skate. I've been to a couple of rinks in my life especially to one on the north side that is no longer in operation (thanks a lot progress).

It's great to share on this blog places you should know about. Especially places that are important institutions for the community or at least to those who have patronized these places over the years. Also it's great to note places that are Black-owned and have remained successful over the years.

Perhaps one day I will visit The Rink and learn to roller skate, to be honest one of my early youthful goals had been to play hockey. It was one dream I never achieved because I never learned to skate let along take a wrist shot, however, now I know of one place nearby to learn to roller skate.
