    I was trying to go for that angle actually. Good Eye. It's almost spot on...except I'm a little closer than the original shot in 1923, and maybe a bit to the left. Prior to last spring you couldn't get a clear shot from that perspective because there was a line of trees along the player's parking lot fence....preventing a clear shot of the stadium. To get a clear shot near that perspective you would've had to be standing in the parking lot just to the right of E157th. I think Gary got a shot from that spot...

    • Here is another version of Yankee1965's photo, with the lightpost shopped out of there. That 1938 date behind the light proved to be quite tricky! Besides shopping the Model-T's in there, any other suggestions? Also, if someone wants any other photo tweaked in any way, let me know. I enjoy this stuff!

          The only "legal trouble" they could incur is a judgment for monetary damages. Seriously, how would either The Yankees or The City of New York (I am not sure who presently owns old Yankee Stadium) be damaged by the publication of a partially delapidated stadium that is in the throes of active demolition?

          When the USFL won its law suit against The NFL many years ago, the damage award it received was literally $1.00, which was trebled to $3.00!:

          • NYC owns the Stadium. The Yankees have nothing to do with it. I'm not sure who owns the rights to the photographic images, but Newsday ran those photos without permission. You need permission from somebody--again, I'm not sure who. But that may explain why we never see any pix from inside, only aerial shots or fan photos when the gates are open.
            Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

              TECHNICALLY, no, they don't need permission, for two reasons:

              1. Photography has been upheld as freedom of expression. Even if a photographer, say, hops a fence and takes photographs of a building, but security catches him, they reserve the right to kick him off of the premises, but not take his camera/photos or demand they be deleted, as they are his property. You see this even at Yankee Stadium- Video Camera's haven't been allowed in for a while, and all security can do is tell you to put it away.
              2. Freedom of the press- clearly this isn't an issue of national security or libel, so there are no grounds to press legal action, and the paper is protected under the First Amendment.

                It's only been four days since I posted my shots from Saturday! Patience, my boy, patience... not even *I* can get up there as often as I'd like...

                  RYS to NYS: "Obi-Lonn never told you what happened to your father."

                  NYS: "He told me enough. He told me you killed him - in the 1970s!!"

                  RYS: "No, I am your father..."

                  NYS: "No, it's not true, that's impossible!!!!"

                        The city owns the ballpark, they are tearing it down, not the Yankees.

                                What's that have to do with NYC being responsible for tearing down the stadium other than your taking yet another pot shot at the Yanks?

                                You seem to be overcome with a delightful sense of schadenfreude as Yankee Stadium is taken apart slowly, bit by bit. I sense that you couldn't care less about the Yankees, their stadium, their fans, and their place in baseball history. Admit it, you're loving it; it's all Mets fans have right now - perceived Yankee fan hurt and pain. It's pure schadenfreude, and a classic case of it. I'm so damn perceptive. arent' I?!

                                I'd be more concerned with that advertising billboard monstrosity that doubles as a ballpark in Flushing and the crappy, mismanaged team that it houses if I were you. Talk about a complete, utter embarrassment to NYC (even if the Mets are really a L.I. team in heart, soul and fanbase)...

                                Oh well, I suppose this is how some Met fans deal with their misery and continuous disappointments.
