Hobokenpix: New Yankee Stadium

[Continuing the Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 10/30/2008

OK, this doesn’t 100% qualify as a “Hobokenpix” – but considering the World Series is over (congrats 2008 Phillies), a friend of Hoboken411 – who’s working on the new Yankee Stadium project, sent this awesome aerial photo of recent construction progress!

Hopefully, the NY Yankees will be back in the playoff hunt next year!

PS – if you have images collecting dust on your camera or hard drive – send them in for eventual inclusion on Hoboken411! Please state how you’d like to be credited in your email, and a description – if desired!!

The public outrage should be at the amount of taxpayer money that went toward this stadium and the Mets’ new ballpark. I am one of the biggest sports fans you’ll meet, but I’m also adamant that not one penny of public money should go toward a stadium or an arena.

Greed, Greed, Greed. The Yankees have the highest attendance in MLB but it’s pure greed closes The House That Ruth Built (yes I know it was renovated), for a glitzy, luxury box filled, corporate playground. As a life long Yankee fan who usually goes to 6 or 7 games a year, I will not pay money for a ticket next year to sit in the house that AROD built. . I can’t understand how there’s not more public outrage over this. Maybe when people see a wrecking ball demolishing the old place they’ll realize we lost the most important venue in all of sports FOREVER. But hey, Hank Steinbrenner will be printing money over in the new place right, so who cares? What a sin.

Some housing project a couple of blocks away was deemed a historic landmark as it was the birthplace of rap but Yankee stadium can’t get the same title? Not to mention the Yankees fleecing Bronx residents out of parkland in a sweetheart deal with the city.

At least the new stadium will have a restaurant in it that’s open all year round because I’m always dying to go to the south bronx for a steak in February…..

I’d love to see an aerial shot of the progress on the Nets’ new arena in Brooklyn. Oh, wait … there IS no progress. 😐
