        haha it's just a door, and is that a doorbell next to it?

        by the way, you spelled boring wrong. It's "boring" not "boreing"

            • No, that's not a doorbell, though I thought that initially myself.

              • Next is a thread devoted to the door, argements to how the door is worst then the original door how much better the door in the 20's was, If the door is going to be brought over to the new stadium, Photos of the door from different angles and years, should they keep the door when the the old stadium is knocked down, How new stadium door is a cheap ripoff of that door, Someone will say that they will not ever use the new door at the new stadium, if that doorway was there pre 47" that it is racist and should have a door on it and somehow winmethod will get involved.

                  Was the door originally a shiny copper color?

                    Forgot that one, and the door in the new stadium is going to be a 1/2 inch smaller then the current door, the Yankees said that the dimentions of the doors in the new stadium will be the same as the current doors, and the Yankees spend tons of money and buy up all the best doors so other small market teams can't compete and get good doors.

                    • No way is that the original knob.
                      When did they change it ? Any pics of the original ?

                      • They are reconstruction of the Stadiums original knobs, the original where cooper or turned metal and may or maynot have been painted white in the 60's.

                        • I see an extra piece, or flap of metal just to the left of the knob itself. This must have been added later, during renovation. It's probably an added security feature, no way would that have been installed in 1923.
                          I wish we had a shot of how the door originaly lookd so we could compare.

                          • Found this rare photo of the door from 1927, now let's compare the Knobs





                            This has to be the 4th dumbest conversation on BBF

                              • Do you have any other photos of the door maybe at different angles, it would really clear up some questions we have about it. I can't wait until we get some construction photos of the doors from the new stadium!!!!
