    • Just Checked out the pics at StadiumPage.com. Their ripping the upper deck all the way to the top. Sec 36 is gone entirely, and perhaps 34 as well. Things are happening fast now. Interesting, you can see how the upperdeck extensions were connected to the orignial structure. Facinating and depressing at the same time. Thanks for the pics Stadium Page!

          That is an LED board above the wood enclosure. Was that there last season?
          Thanks for the picture. I was actually talking about the area outside right next to gate 6. I saw pictures of some construction baracades there a few weeks ago. It looked like they were remodeling that area. Did you notice anything different in that area or anything different in the new place ingeneral? Can you post your picture of the tour of NYS in the Yankee Stadium 2009 thread? Thanks.

            I didn't notice anything different on the outside of the stadium by gate 6. the above was just inside of gate 6 to the left of the Hard Rock Cafe entrance.

              I think this is what Cool Papa B. was asking about...

                Direct link to the Feb 15th photos.

                I figured most everyone has been there by now. Also, its my username.
                Off the main page, click on the demolition link.
                I've got it bookmarked, but if you put the link as your signature, you might get more first-timers checking it out.

                (And I'd encourage anyone who has checked it out to do so!)

                  I hadn't seen that. Whatever they were doing was completely done by today. I didn't notice anything different at all. Must've resurfaced the sidewalk or something.
                  Here's the only picture I took today that had that general area in it.

                  • Getting back to the demolition, I went up there today and took pictures. I did a lot of walking around the area today, and in this weather it took a lot out of me, so I haven't done any processing or uploading or anything on them yet.

                    They are doing some work on the outfield wall. The two ad panels surrounding the Diamond Vision (Hess and Budweiser) have been taken down, so you can see what it looks like behind the ads. One of the photos StadiumPage posted on his website shows this...

                    Perhaps that's what Monument's source meant by 'the bleachers are coming down.'

                    Also, the black scaffolding has been removed from the River Avenue side. There are now rectangular "holes" in the wall. In some places, you can see through them - this would be those portions of the wall where the ad panels have been removed.

                      • Well, there goes the theory that the Upper Deck would need to be shored up in order to take it down without it falling out of control.

                            That looks like a catwalk angling upward in there. SHIVER!!!
