      I believe that's original 1922-23 concrete vs. later renovations/pours....literally uncovering the house that ruth built right now.

      Sadly.

      Some would say, criminally.

        No, they're being buried - they'll be below the surface of the park - maybe they'll somehow save those roofs but doesn't look like it.

          Welllll, I suppose they *could* be hauled out of there - each by at least a pair of Chinooks!

            Guess they would have taken them out by now surely. I kinda like the idea of them being buried with the roofs still on, if in a 100 years time, during construction or excavation work on that site, they find the Original (okay Renovated) Yankee Stadium Dugouts that legend says may have been buried down there that would be kinda cool and bring the history from across the street back to a new generation (of course most most of us won't be around for such a great moment but something for the kids and grand kids!)

              Steiner will eventually dig down- (on his hands and knees in the middle of the night if he has to) chop it up into pieces- slap a few autographs on them- and put them in glass cases
              and make many thousnads of dollars

                ...you'll see that another street, whose name I surprisingly don't know, bisects the property between River Avenue and 153rd Street that is the present site of the parking garage.

                And I believe Ruppert Place was also a "real" street for most of Renovated Yankee Stadium's existance - it wasn't until sometime in the 1990s or 2000s that it became a restricted access roadway.
                Gary, you are correct regarding 157 St pre renovation. Here is a pic of Ruppert Pl. by 161 St.

                  Was this overhead picture taken on Mickey Mantle day in 1969?

                    • You can also see the street that cuts through the present site of the parking garage at the top of that pictures.

                        • And together! Kinda shows the lie in those rancid claims that it's "not the same stadium" they're busily destroying...

                              • Good picture comparison, the overall stadium has really remained unchanged.

                                This makes the stadium demise so much more painful!
