    get into the mix to save the Gate.
    There is nothing like publicity and exposure from people with big money to make things happen. Heck, maybe even Rudy can help.

    Yes, a good idea, but we have to reach out to the local community groups, show them that gate 2 does not encroach on the ballfields. It seems to me that the city could create space ( from private contributions) for exhibit related to the communiity, etc.
    Don't forget Adam Sandler, Spike Lee, Regis, many many more... And speaking of Billy Crystal, whatever happened to JimmyJimJimz?

      Nice panoramic YanksRule. After the whole stadium comes down it should be interesting to see what kind of views you might have from the new park. I wonder how far into Manhattan you would be able to see.

      • According to pictures posted in Joe's Demoliton of Yankee Stadium site, the remaining sliver of upper deck left field came down yesterday. I can't see the picture YanksRule's friend took (for some reason I can't access Flickr while at work), but if it's the same panoramic view as the one at Joe's site credited to "Fallon Chan," then the last remaining sliver of left field stands is gone... the furthest even number section still up is now section 8, with a piece of 10 at the extreme edge.

        Wednesday I got some twilight exterior views from behind home plate. (I'll try to get them up sometime this evening.) As we keep losing the upper deck it will be important to document the visual appearance of the exterior without the upper deck. It won't hit you at first, but as you look along the third base side you'll see that the stands stop short instead of going all the way to the end... and yes, it will look strange. Wonder how it will be as they get closer to the areas behind the plate.

        (For those who don't know, home plate was aligned with the "K" in "YANKEE STADIUM"... not the two windows between "YANKEE" and "STADIUM," and not the Gate 4 escalator pod.)

          Yes, it's Fallon's photo.

            • The real tragedy of the noble attempt to commemorate and honor old Yankee Stadium isn't the arrogance and ignorance of the Parks Department and Design Commission, but the silence and apathy of the New York Yankees.

                As an outsider and hopefully objective observer, I agree with your statement 100%. It's also very surprising to me. I had held the organization itself in higher esteem before this.

                    Dang! What scale is the original size?

                    1:1?

                      With pans that wide, up that close you'd probably need to take 5 or 6 pictures before stitching to get that field of vision.
                      If he had a 12 MP camera, each image is 4000 x 3000 px (55 inches x 41 inches in my camera.) If you multiply that by 6 pictures you've got a 20 x 27 FOOT picture at full size.

                            What is sad, and yet amazing is that even though they are ripping the old girl apart, she still has sleeker lines then the balloon like structure across the street

                            • The photos I took Wednesday the 10th are now up on Flickr... here's a sample...

                              Be careful to hold on very tight to the handrail as you navigate the steps outside section 28...




                              Here's a widescreen view of the area where the Yankees' clubhouse was (the entrance was somewhere below Main level section 9)...




                              Continuing my tradition of getting pictures inside the ballpark restrooms, here's the wall of the ladies' room on the Field level, just inside the Gate 4 entry. The sinks are gone but you can see soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, a baby changing station, and even ads on the wall...




                              This is one of the views I talked about in an earlier post... a twilight view of the old girl in its twilight. If you look along the third base side you'll see that the stands stop short instead of going all the way to the end... that's section 10, which (at least to my knowledge) is as of this moment the furthest from the plate on the third base side. This shot was taken from directly behind home plate...




                              A night view from 158th Street near River Avenue...




                              Night view of Gate 2, taken from the 161st Street subway platform... that blue light bathing the stadium is coming from the present facility's marquee...




                              Finally... I had to save this one for last... the Yankees honoring one legend while they destroy another...

                                Dude if your camera "sucked" you wouldn't have that impressive spread on your desk! :hyper: You work in finance or something? I work as a technician in a large bank and everyone has two monitors - minimum. some have 4, two ontop of two, or even 6.

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

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