PATERSON -

Paterson is restoring a historic cricket clubhouse after 50 years.

Officials say they have spent about $460,000 from the federal government and another $260,000 from the county on the project. Mayor Andre Sayegh says the restoration is an effort to treat teams and fans the right way.

"It's a poor reflection on Paterson when we can't even give them the basics, as far as accommodations are concerned," says Sayegh.

Among the accommodations made possible by the restoration are concession stands and bathrooms.
