Jim Brown draped himself in the red ribbon used in the April 27 ribbon cutting ceremony dedicating the new athletic field at Manhasset Valley Park in his honor. Immediately following the ceremony Brown, accompanied by his wife, walked over to the crowd and began shaking hands with the eager fans. Manhasset’s star athlete was moved to see so many in attendance, saying he was a student some 50 years ago, and he was touched so many remember him. Story and more photos next week.
