    As with the Shea Stadium mystery,has anyone seen trucks removing debris form Yankee Stadium? I always wondered where Shea actually is buried now but I could never get an answer. Where would theYankee Stadium steel be removed to? Someone mentioned the concrete being reused on site but some things have to be removed. Where?
    If I remember correctly much of Shea's steel and rubble was being hauled off to some site in Rockaway Twp, NJ.
    As with any steel I'm sure its being cut up so that it can be scrapped and recycled.

          • As always, nice photos Gary. We appreciate your efforts! I need to get over to the Stadium myself if I can find the time. I'd sure like to see the place with my own eyes just one more time before it's completely gone.....

              • from juan gonzalez, ny daily news...

                As for the baseball and little league fields, any work on them will have to wait until the old stadium comes down.
                "Demolition should be finished by June," Lombino said, while the new community ballfields "should be ready sometime in late 2011."

                If Lombino is right, those baseball fields will finally be replaced more than five years after the original ones were taken away from the youth of the community.

                Somehow, Yankee Stadium was built on schedule. So were the huge parking garages around it. So was the new Metro-North station.
                Only the replacement parks for the community have suffered these delays. As for the politicians in the Bronx, they must all be waiting for their Yankees tickets.

                • Wasn't there a huge amount of asbestos cleanup that needed to be done before the demolition really commenced?

                  I don't think Mr. Gonzalez or others want their precious snowflakes getting mesothelioma and other lung illnesses from playing on a park containing crushed asbestos as its foundation.

                    I don't know what all the commotion is about. There are 4 other fields within spitting distance of the ones that were temporarily lost. That's still more fields than I ever had near me when I was a kid.

                    • .....not to mention that the ballfields are usually vacant, anyway.
                      Kids today don't play baseball very much.

                                4 years is more that temporary, my dad played on those fields as a kid before he was signed by yankees scout paul kritchell.
                                what you label aren't full-sized fields and they don't make up for 4 that were lost.

                                mr. gonzalez was making the point that the yankees count and kids do not.

                                richie, you'd be surprised how much ballplaying by kids goes on in the bronx. organized and otherwise...
