  • New Meadowlands Stadium

    I know it's not baseball, but before you dump this is there any sites that show the progress of the new Giants/Jets stadium in the Meadowlands? Or does anyone at least have any themselves?

    I took some pictures in October and December. They're posted at http://www.metsrefugees.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=23729

    Here's a nice aerial shot I found from December:

          LOL, haven't torn down Giants Stadium yet. I'm sure there will be much talk about that when they do.

              The deal looks pretty much dead, although the Star Ledger reported a few days ago that the NJSEA still expects a baseball stadium there - likely not with the Bergen Cliff Hawks (good name!) as tenants...

                What's that thing on the other side of route 3? next to the Izod Center? It kinda looks like a parking garage, but I really can't tell.

                    is it me or from the aerial shot the new stadium is going to nearly hit giants stadium? it looks like they have an oval shaped out which seems to be where the foundation for the stadium is going to lie clearly on the road and a little bit on top of that ticket gate. are they planning on knocking the booth down during construction or did i just over-shoot my projection? (thats the gate i walk in for my Jets games so i can ill afford that booth to be taken down).

                      No, I think you're right. I think they have to close that entrance.

                        One thing I think we've all noticed is the angle at which the stadium will now be sitting. It will look a little different now one TV. Usually by late October the sun is low enough to where you don;t get much sun coming into the current stadium, especially with the press box on the south side looming over, but from the new angle the sun may be coming in a little more.

                        I also wonder if the Giants and Jets will keep the same side for their bench or move it to the shady side? I know this was a Mara thing so I'm wondering if they stay with it or break tradition.

                          Anyone got any recent pictures? I've looked all over the internet, can't find anything. I wonder why people don't take more pictures of this place, but they do the baseball stadiums. Being in Jersey, would be my best guess.

                            Hmm. Can you even go park in one of the sports complex lots on a non event day?

                            I guess they have to let you park somewhere, since I'd imagine the Brendan Byrne...umm...Continental...umm... Izod Center box office must be open during the day.

                              You can park there during non event days, there are no guards telling anyone that they can't park and there are no barricades that block the parking lot entrances.
