The view from 114th street:

Its amazing how fast and furious the demolition has been and yet it takes them just about 2 days to take this very small area down.
Its like they want to torture us just a little longer. Just rub the salt in a little deeper.
Unfortunately that ticket office will probably still be there after the ramps come down so technically the last part of shea coming down won't be all that impressive.

When I left the upper escalator (the one from the Mezz to the Upper Deck) was still there. What time did you take your pictures, Dan?
This is home now - Citi Field, capacity 41,800 - and every seat in this ballpark seemingly filled, some standees as well, anticipating a piece of history as delivered by Mike Pelfrey, the 25-year-old from Wichita, Kansas. Into a windup, his first pitch in the history of Citi Field, a fastball for a called strike to Jody Gerut. Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009
all that is now left are the two sections of ramps...the seat sections in front were removed about an hour ago
according to a guy taking pics...the ramp is going down tomorrow like the scoreboard did with that pull down idea...cant confirm by any means though
so what time is everyone planning on going tomorrow. from dan's info, it seems as though the whole thing will be down in the noon-ish time frame, so is about 10:30 - 11:00 a good range to get there?
Dont mind quality I wanted to finish uploading as fast as possible

Be advised, construction workers usually work within a 7:30am to 3-4pm timeframe. I would THINK that perhaps they would do it midday to appease the news coverage... but if the crane operator is a Yankee fan, then he just might "YANK" the support beam at precisely 7:30:01am.
