Jackie Robinson Table at Bear Mountain Inn








We were filming up near the Bear Mountain Inn yesterday and I noticed this Jackie Robinson reserved table.

I asked one of the staff members what that was all about and she told me-

When Jackie Robinson stayed at the Inn and went to dine at the dining room he wasn't allowed to due segregation. Now, they permanently leave a table reserved for him in the middle of the restaurant during dinner set ups so he is always represented and his table is with everyone.


That's pretty cool.
