    Yeah probably because that was the only seating area they buried under concrete, wasn't it?

      Yeah, I thought of Gary when I read a complaint on another thread at BBF (from an out-of-towner) about how "New York" threads seem to dominate BBF. One poster said, "They'd start a thread about 'Polo Grounds vs. Citi Field Hot Dog Wrappers' and soon have the pictures to compare them." And the other guy said "I know you're trying to be sarcastic, but it's true".

      • could it have somehow been the back rows of the old loge or main level seating that had the concessions built over them? Maybe there were spots where they just put a room over them, leaving the rows intact.

            They didn't bury any seating area under concrete.

            • Ahh, the mysterious doors made famous by BBF.

              Maybe we'll get to see this concourse during the demolition.

              • That's a great picture of the former concourse. I heard once that the Yankees used parts of that concourse for magazine publishing, not sure if there's much truth to it though.

                We'll definitely get to see that concourse during the demolition, it's just a question of how we will see it. I would imagine that we will see a lot of things we haven't seen in a long time. It will probably open many eyes as to what is really left from the renovation.

                    It looks almost like someone stole part of the Orioles mascot's costume and hid it in there.

                    Any reason why they seem to be preserving the infield shape? I don't see many (if any) footprints or tire-tracks in it. Are they trying not to mix the dirt, so they can bottle up the infield dirt to sell later?

                    • Few more:



                      Strange to see the coned sign lit up. Also note the cabling attached to the upperdeck.




                      The wall on the right is where the "ghost of the babe" was. It still looks like a figure if you ask me.




                      Love that the yankees.com ad from the 90's is still up

                        • I hope you guys know me well enough to understand where I'm coming from when I say that those photos are incredibly awesome - but I wish I was the one taking them. Yes, I'm jealous.

                          Why that ad in particular, as opposed to all the other ones that are also still up?

                          • The eeriest thing is that the Con Ed sign still lights up...

                            And the mysterious exit that used to be the exit to the street for the old stadium has opened up!

                            • Gehrig27 that comparison is sad. What a shame to lose OYS, what a shame to lose even RYS. Incredible this is happening.
