    Really?? I didn't know that - how are they going to be arranged?

    • Damn them!

      Also, I saw a few pieces of the black had indeed been salvaged. At least I think they are the black batter's eye blocks. They are on the right side of the picture in which we see the YANKEE STADIUM letters on the bed of the truck.

      • Wow! Just WOW!

        These images really bring home the point that it's really being demolished. I'll bet the outfield stands are gone by the end of the month.


        Any idea where the Yankee Stadium letters are going?

              They couldn't really put the demolition in drive until the Yankees season was over.

                  That might be a difficult concept for Ralf to understand, plus Yankee Stadium is on a city street and not some suburban parking lot.

                  • To get to the Metro Station and the Harlem River parking lots fans had to walk between the old ball park and that new soccer field on top of the garage.

                        Bullsh*t? How is that bullsh*t? Do you complain for the sake of complaining?

                          Well, what do you think is the reason then? They are doing it nice and slow just to torment the fans?

                              You lost him at "postseason."

                              • I call b.s. too as external demo had begun before the end of the season (escalator tubes) and the bleacher demo is no more a hazard than the box seat demo that began many months ago.

                                I suspect that what is closer to the truth is that internal demo has been going on for months and that Ye Olde Yankee Stadium is finally ready for the big machines.
