Pelham Bay Park is divided by the Hutchinson River. The southern portion features two unusual sights, a spectacular war memorial and a statue remnant from an old stadium. The World War Memorial (1925) designed by John Sheridan is one of the best-maintained monuments in all of NYC. Rice Memorial Stadium (1925) was recently demolished. It featured a small Greek temple framing Louis St. Lannes' heroic statue The America Boy. The stadium was given to the city by the widow of Isaac L. Rice, developer of storage batteries for cars and first president of the Electric Storage Battery Co. in 1897. In gratitude, city fathers named neighboring streets Watt, Ampere, and Ohm. Rice was also inventor of the Rice gambit, a chess opening.
