Nice shot of a guy who returned in 1983, and a guy who would debut in 1984!
The YR site got kicked around as a possible site for NYS years ago, as an alternative to Jersey.
For years, Yonkers has been kicking around the idea of putting a minor league ballpark on Chicken Island (Yonkers natives know where I mean) behind Getty Square. Not sure where it is right now. Ratner (Bkln Nets guy) is building a huge outdoor mall on Ridge Hill, across from Stew Leonard's.
Just keeping post 1986 away from the phillie fan!
I am touched....lol You went to great lenghts to keep that from me.
Rain held up today .... though is was damp & misty out there. Posting eight shots, all with my old camera. Tomorrow (after I download all the new software), I'll post some photos I took with the new one. The panorama feature is awesome! Takes alot of time to do it, but it's usually worth the wait. Hopefully, they'll look as good on the computer screen as they look on the camera's screen! It's my new favorite feature!
Hey Dan ...... do you shoot some of your photos on top of that metal cart that's under the train steps? It's been parked there for a WHILE now & I only noticed today that there was a way to climb up there ... so I did. When I was up there, I got to wondering if this is one of your spots? If so, you SHOULD have fed your bird, man .... because he's DEAD!! (LOLOL).
If you were up there today, you'll understand the joke. If not, the next time you go up there you'll get it!
The fourth shot is of the wrought iron gates that they are beginning to install around Citi Field, with Mets "NY" logos on top. VERY cool! I reversed it so that the logos were facing the right way. The last shot is one of these gates in service already @ Citi Field.
FWIW, that team, including Mazzilli (though dressed in early 80s garb) and Gooden, was the most represented in the Shea Goodbye ceremony.
Here is the breakdown of the postseason squads
1969: Seaver, Koosman, McAndrew, Harrelson, Kranepool, Shamsky, Swoboba, Charles, Garrett, Berra
1973: Seaver, Koosman, Harrelson, Kranepool, Theodore, Staub, Mays, Swan (well, kind of, sort of, he debuted that season), Berra
1986: Harrelson (as a coach), Hernandez, Backman, Teufel, Dykstra, Carter, Strawberry, Mazzilli, Johnson, Gooden, Darling, Ojeda, Fernandez, Orosco
1988: Harrelson (as a coach), Hernandez, Backman, Teufel, Dykstra, Carter, Strawberry, Mazzilli, Johnson, Gooden, Darling, Ojeda, Fernandez
2000: Piazza, Zeile, Alfonzo, Ventura, Leiter, Franco
Same crew except for Zeile representing the 1999 squad
Directly under the staircase for the subway, Dan, is a (mobile) metal platform/scaffold on wheels that is (probably) used to paint under the "L"? There's a joystick on it, so my guess is that when it's turned on, it looks like you can raise & lower the bed of it. It's been parked there for the past month or so. Today was the first time I noticed you could climb into it, so I did & I used to to take photos from.
RYS to NYS: "Obi-Lonn never told you what happened to your father."
NYS: "He told me enough. He told me you killed him - in the 1970s!!"
RYS: "No, I am your father..."
NYS: "No, it's not true, that's impossible!!!!"
RYS: "Look beyond my respirator pods and my upper crown; you know it to be true!
it pisses me off that they are just disposing of those lights. A little league, high school or college could use those to great advantage
Three more ......
Like I said .... my NEW favorite toy!
Not BAD for a first timer with this panorama function, huh?!

Great shots everyone, looking at the progress I dont think any of Shea will be around to see Opening Day.
It's going to be weird when it's totally gone... Richie, you have to get a Pan at the same locations after Shea is no more to compare with the great ones you took today
