While the Yankee beat writers are getting a tour of the new Yankee Stadium later today, we’re going to do you one better. Thanks to reader Paul V., we’ve got our hands on some photos from inside the construction site, and they are fantastic.
The photos, all taken by Robert Barkovitz, show the Stadium going up. You can view a slideshow below or check them out at my flickr site. Some highlights:
- The new façade is making its way around the Stadium.
- The field itself has a long way to go.
- The view from the top of the Stadium.
- What ends up on the roof starts on the ground.
Check out the rest in this slideshow. I love watching these big construction projects go up, and it’s too bad the Yanks don’t have a construction cam set up as the Washington Nationals do. Instead, we’ll take the glimpses inside as we can get them. Again, thanks to Robert Barkovitz for these shots.
