Thread: Ebbets Field

  1. #151
    Here's my attempt to Photoshop out the logo. Not bad, if I say so myself. Tint slightly off, but nothing you'd notice if you weren't looking for it.



    Love the lines of the stands. Way, way cleaner, and way more open than YS.

    It seemed to be fairly steep in the upper deck. I never noticed that before.

    Old sailors never die, they just hang around Ebbets Field

    Those seats would appear to be quite uncomfortable.

    I wonder what itís like after death. Probíly itís like it is bífore birth. Is it nothing? Non-existence? Thatís not hard tíunderstand, but itís hard for people tíaccept. Itís hard for them to imagine not existing because all of their memories are of their existence, not non-existence. Aní people ainít too crazy about the idea of themselves not existing. - Harvey Pekar, ďShort Weekend: A Story About the Cosmic and the Ordinary,Ē American Splendor #3, 1978.

    That made me laugh. But in all fairness, Citi doesn't even come close. Look at the beautiful detail on the exterior.

    On another note, I am reading Stan Musial's biography and according to him, this was the park he most loved to hit at. He said it was very kind to him. Also, back in the day nothing beat a Cardinals-Dodgers rivalry.

    Haven't seen this posted before, this is good... an overlay of Ebbets Field and the Ebbets Field Apartments.


    Edit: Sorry, this had, in fact, been posted earlier in the thread.

    Cool diagram. The neighborhood is changing, and the EF Apts' time is probably coming.

    Crime, poverty still crushing Ebbets Field's spirit (from Apr '07)

    MM at Ebbets, before a soccer match between the US National Team and the Israeli Hapoel team, from Marilyn.Monroe.Project on Picasa. Second photo is Ya'acov Chodorov, apparently a legendary Israeli goalie. Packed house that day - soccer fans or Marilyn fans? I wonder...

    Interesting. Even the people in the apartments across the street had their windows open and were watching the proceedings (second photo). I don't recall seeing that in any other Ebbets Field photo...

    Well, I can't imagine that much excitement over Israel in 1950s New York.

    Alpineinc great photos. When I looked at this one I thought perhaps all three of the company's with the ads were still around. Especially, Brass Rail. Alas only Mennen survives and barely according to Wikipedia:

    "Today, the name Mennen is being phased out in some regions and products in many countries are becoming known simply as Speed Stick or Lady Speed Stick. In North America, both products, as well as Skin Bracer and Afta are still being marketed as being "by Mennen," where the name is still well-known and holds positive connotations. "

    Geez, check out those narrow walkways. Even without the SRO, imagine having to deal with that every game.

    According to my dad, he would venture a guess that this game was versus St Louis. He said that was the only team he ever had trouble getting into EF to see a game. There were only about 32,000 seats but the FDNY at the time allowed standing room and the sometimes shoehorned as many as 41,000 into the joint. Finally, they cracked down on that practice before they had a disaster.

    Excuse me, is this the way to Europe, France?

    Well, since Getty Images bailed me out last night with LeBron art (AP is crap!), I decided to see what Getty has from Ebbets Field. Here's O'Malley greeting the king of Iraq - in the rotunda, maybe? Plus the king leaning forward to get a good picture to post on the Ebbets Field thread. Also views from top of CF stands and behind homeplate.

    They have cool shots from the locker rooms, which was standard stuff back in the day. Check out how tiny the lockers are for visitors.

    I lived in Downtown Brooklyn and I remember Michaels Furniture Store on Ashland Place and Fulton St.
    Brings back old memories.
