Old factory where "spaldeens" were made, converted to condos
This was the former factory of the Spalding Company, where they used to make spaldeens, the pink rubber balls that were an iconic presence in urban America. Everywhere kids used to play games like stickball with spaldeens. Anyone who grew up in New York up to the mid-80s probably remembers them. There was a Spalding banner painted around the building, along with words like football, basketball, etc.
