This thread is in no way intended to suggest that we end the discussion concerning the demolition of the original Yankee Stadium. What ever the NYC parks commission has planned in lieu of a venue which had hosted 100 World Series games, 3 Papal visits, Schmeling vs. Louis and the "The Greatest Game Ever Played" in NFL history just to name a few--The memory of what Heritage field replaces is too important to be ignored or forgotten simply because the physical structure has been razed to or buried under the ground.
However, as other members have noted, the demolition of OYS appears to be complete. A completion date for H.F. has also been targeted. So perhaps a Heritage Field thread would be better suited in documenting the transition now underway:
