Scenes from a topped Stadium

Game Eight: Scheduling difficulties
Hip, hip, oh, no.

Stadium09 In my Inbox yesterday morning were more scenes from inside the new Yankee Stadium construction zone. These shorts, courtesy of again to reader Paul V., show some scenes from inside the construction site, and they show the final piece of the façade on the way up.

The photos, all taken by Robert Barkovitz, show the Stadium going up. You can view a slideshow below or check them out here at my flickr site. Some highlights:

  • Above, the final piece of the façade, decorated with the Union flag, the U.S. flag and the Yankee flag, rests on the ground before making the trip up to the top of the stadium.
  • That final piece if laid into place.
  • The view inside shows that the Stadium has a long way to go yet.
  • No seats yet on the lower level.
  • The view around the seating bowl looks pretty nifty.

Thanks again to Robert Barkovitz for this final set of photos from inside the new stadium, and we’ll have construction shots all summer long. The slide show is below.

Game Eight: Scheduling difficulties

    game 8 another bad display in the bottom of the 8th. Offense doing nothing again… Hughes had a bad outing…

    Cano swings at everything he is now about 225 wirh bases loaded, what is up with that?

    Giambi looks old and so does Jorge.

    The D looks slow and old, nice throw by Damon and nice play at 2nd by Betemit.

    Molina can play D….

      Wrong thread.

    Does anybody know if the current construction of the new stadium is on track? Or a bit behind, a bit ahead, what? I’m sure they’ll get it finished in time, but I’m just curious.

    God damn that upper deck is small and way the hell far back. Instead of offering a close, intimate feel for such a big park like the current one does, it looks wide freaking open…
