Re: Hayden Lake

Nice article Ben! I wish I could live there. I lived in Brooklyn most of my life. Had to move to Staten Island. Hate Staten Island! I would love to move one day.

Re: Hayden Lake

Well here is a connection I found with Bing Crosby to Staten Island.

It appears to to have taken place in 1932:

"The Stapes pulled another surprise the next week when they took on the Dodgers before 20,000 at Ebbets Field. The fans stirred up when they spotted Bing Crosby among their number, but the Stapletons quieted them down by winning the contest 7-6, despite completing a paltry two passes for the day."  (THE STATEN ISLAND STAPLETONS By John Hogrogian Special thanks to N.F.L. Properties, Inc. for permission to publish this article.)

The Staten Island Stapletons also known as the Staten Island Stapes were a professional American football team founded in 1915 that played in the National Football League from 1929 to 1932. The team was based in the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stapleton,_Staten_Island]Stapleton[/url] section of Staten Island. They played under the shortened nickname the "Stapes" the final two seasons. Jack Shapiro, who was a blocking back for the Stapletons, was the shortest player in NFL history.

Looks like it was October 9, 1932.

Re: Hayden Lake

Here is some more Elko news from back in the day.

80 Years Ago

Mr. and Mrs. Bing Crosby, returning from their ranch in Elko County to Hollywood today, tarried in Carson for lunch at the Senator Coffee Shop.

Yeah I believe it is Lindsay. That magazine looks to be from the 1950s. Interesting article!
