The golden era of Brooklyn racing
By Ryan Goldberg
On the edge of Gravesend, Avenue U became Trainers’ Row. The moneyed class, like the Dwyers and jockeys Jimmy McLaughlin and Snapper Garrison, lived in Eighth Avenue brownstones on Sportsman’s Row (in what is now Park Slope, a neighborhood in the Western part of Brooklyn).
