National Park Service looking for someone to run the Hyde Park Drive-In
Patricia R. Doxsey reports in the Daily Freeman that the officials who run the Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site in Dutchess County are looking for someone to take over the Hyde Park Drive-In for the next 10 years. The National Park Service took over the site from Scene Hudson in 2011, and now have a call for proposals from vendors interested in leasing and operating the drive-in. The land, on U.S. Route 9 in Hyde Park, was once part of the Roosevelt farm and estate. The drive-in first opened in 1950, with room for up to 670 cars and includes a single-story building that contains restrooms, a concession stand, storage and administrative space. The lease also comes with a marquee sign, ticket booth, projection screen, and a promise to keep up the building and grounds. Proposals must be submitted by April 14 to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include “Hyde Park Drive-In” in the subject line. Read more about this story in the Daily Freeman.
