    Oh I agree. But they could still be doing their very tricky work without the outfield wall there. I guess we'll know soon enough. Maybe if they are gonna drop the upper deck, they figure the outfield wall would protect against major rubble... Either way, I do hope they are filming every aspect of this for some kind of documentary.

      The OF/bleacher walls serve the same purpose as the black screens they installed around the perimeter of the Stadium (if not better!). I would hazzard a guess that they will be some of the final parts of the Stadium to be razed for just that reason. They will help to contain the dust & debris from drifiting over River Avenue & beyond. Besides, they will probably be the EASIEST part of the structure to demolish, due to the fact that there isn't anything hanging over them, nor any offices or other structures contained in them that look to be very difficult to demolish. Then again, I do not work in the demolition field, so that's just the opinion of someone who doesn't do this for a living.

        • We can see through to the UP concourse and the mechanical level.

          Also, there is some damage to one of the rectangular windows on Gate 2.

          Do what they want to

          Than the lies

          • If you look at those WCBS photos you can see some of the side paneling from the upper deck has been removed. You can see some of the structure behind it. Take a look from the angle that doesn't show Gate 2.
