Facility

Location

The location was carefully chosen with regards to access to surrounding Colleges and Universities, and access to a unique opportunity-filled town center. A 1 hour and 15 minute drive via the NYS Thruway (I-87), or a short Trailways bus from midtown NYC (Port Authority), it is easily accessible to NYC. The bus station is within walking distance from the Home, which is less than 1 mile from the center of New Paltz and the campus of SUNY New Paltz College.

History

The home has a history of facilitating world famous champions and serves as a symbol of top achievement.

The property is the former home and training facility of heavyweight boxing world champion Floyd Patterson. He built a professional boxing ring and facility that served as a training camp for two undisputed world heavy weight champions – Muhammad Ali and Ingemar Johansson as well as Patterson’s son, Tracy Harris Patterson who became a 2nd generation boxing champion.

Plans for Facility

The home’s history will be an inspiration for our champions.

We will continue this legacy. The boxing and training facility will be converted into the Home of Champions Community Center. This will house leadership, holistic health, and creative arts seminars.
