    Those are some awesome pictures. New Yankee Stadium looks so much less hodge-podge than Citi Field. It just looks classier.

    I don't know about that. These are two very different concepts. And neither is close to completion. Let's wait till they are really ballparks before the comparisons start.

    The last time you were there was....? And what is your idea of a great neighborhood adjacent to a ballpark? South Chicago? The area to the West of Wrigley? Central LA? The Seattle docks? The San Francisco docks? I could go on....

    I wouldn't consider the area directly around the stadium that bad, but everywhere else is pretty much a mess.

    Webster ave is disgusting, but Riverdale is first class. Lots of contrasts in the Bronx. Oh and by the way, Hunt's Point (south Bronx of HBO's "Hookers on the Point" fame) is a trendy and expensive neighborhood now.

    I love Riverdale, because that's where I live

    What is the outside of the stadium going to look like after the facade ends in right field? Like when the right side starts to curve as it reaches River Ave.

    Webster to me by far is just disgusting. And a lot of gang activity. I lived on morris ave. which is not to far from webster projects. I must say webster is crap. Jerome and River ave. are pretty decent my ex-girlfriend lives a few blocks from the stadium on Jerome. && Jerome is okay not much happens where she lives.

    The Yanks have announced the publication of an "official" retrospective on the Stadium. Entitled, suprisingly enough Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective. It'll be out a a few days, cover price $50.



    If I get it, like I won't, I'll have the 50 year book, the 75 year book and this one. All pretty much the same content except for some newer stuff, I'd assume.

    Stadium books on amazon.com

    As expected, there will be numerous books about the Stadium this year. Note that the prices are cheaper than thru the Yankees:

    I have a feeling with the new stadium, mall, parks, and high school, the south Bronx will improve due to increased property value... look at Cleveland and Baltimore- the new stadiums turned really bad areas into great spots. The area that I think will get the worst of it is Mount Vernon because thats really the only area that hasen't been under improvement so rent is still low, its not a major move from the Bronx, and still has subway access.

    I had no idea.

    You've got your choice certainly. These will mostly, if not all be coffee table books, so choose your price and go for it.

    Well, IMO unless they were to unlawfully make every person get up leave their current apartments so that they can be renovated and turned into multi million dollar condos and lofts I don't see that happening just yet. The areas to the east and north of YS are still working class and lower income neighborhoods that will continue to have their issues just like any other major urban american city. I can't see the South Bronx turning into a Brooklyn shipyard type of area just yet. The Bronx is still a gritty hard working borough. Granted it will only improve especially now with the new Stadium and infrastructure improvements around it but its still the Bronx.

    And exactly what the **** is wrong with it still being the bronx?
