    As I commented over there:

    Utter sadness. Let’s never forget that this rivals Penn Station as the preservation crime of the last half century in New York.

    A total disgrace, yet these wonderful and poignant photos constitute a living tribute to those who care, a stern and permanent rebuke to the forces that tore down the House That Ruth Built, an important historical document, and something of a monument against evil and greed.

    Well done!

    Was wondering if anyone has any new pictures of the site. Latest we know is that they've closed off the Ruppert Plaza walkway but there are now a couple of paved walkways through the site itself.

    You must have felt that section falling as much as you saw it fall.

    Gary when you contrast your photos with the CAD "reconstruction" of the 1923 stadium over at the worthy thread, the scope of this historic tragedy is even clearer...

    From the great Field of Schemes blog:

    Barbara Kopple's documentary "The House of Steinbrenner" debuts Tuesday, Sept. 21 on ESPN, and promises previously unseen footage of this spring's carnage. Writes Richard Sandomir in the New York Times:

    Kopple said that she received access from the city to film the stadium's destruction, which the rest of the news media had to observe from rooftops and the subway platform.

    She shot the upper deck being torn down, the seats being removed and Derek Jeter's locker being taken apart — and the emotion of longtime team employees like Debbie Nicolosi as a beloved stadium died to give life to one that cost more than a billion dollars to build.

    This remains a heartbreaking story for anyone interested in baseball, NY history and preservation.

    Man, you need to go to work for the NYC Parks Commission! :-)
