Once more unto the Bronx parks

Halladay sinks Yanks
The Boss could bring down Yankee Stadium

Early this week in the Daily News, Ian Begley wrote an extensive article on the issues surrounding the new Yankee Stadium and displaced parkland in the South Bronx. While Begley’s piece doesn’t touch on anything new that I haven’t covered — the RAB Yankee Stadium archive is available here — the article is a succinct summary of the issues surrounding the land grab and broken promises. The Yankees and the City should make good on their parkland promises sooner rather than the later. The longer this issue drags on, the worse the Yankees look.

    The parks issue is something that will always be used to hammer the Yankees with. People fail to reconize that the cost of goods has really hurt construction. For example: The East River Park (Lower Manhattan) was supposed to be finished this year, and construction has barely started. It will take many years to finish the parks.
