    I look at it this way, Big Man .... we've waited five months, right?
    "Shea" (or her remains) gets ONE MORE day in the sun before the final act tomorrow. She's earned it.

    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.

    That's true, Bill.

    Unless the ramps land on top of the ticket office ....
    which doesn't seem very likely ... that building will be the last thing resembling Shea to be demolished.

    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?

    Archie Bunker: All I can tell you, Edith, is I'm surprised at you! Dragging me off to a moving picture like that! It was absolutely disgusting!
    Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"

    all that is now left are the two sections of ramps...the seat sections in front were removed about an hour ago

    Kind of fitting the last structure is one of the signifying features of Shea.

    Around 2.

    According to bluenautica's twitter, the escalators were taken down around 1.

    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?

So, it's very possible that it could be in the 11-12 time frame, but not definite.

    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.

    This waiting till tomorrow to pull down that one little ramp section is looking more like a ceremonial media opportunity than an actual scheduled part of the demo. They could have easily yanked those down by tonight, but I guess they want to go out with one final splash.
