Demo continues on 161st and River Ave.


After opening their new stadium in style last year, the Yankees’ old home continues to be torn down across the street. Gary Dunaier snapped some photos of the demolition of the Old Stadium from a moving downtown 4-train earlier this week. The escalator bank in left field is gone, ditto the rightfield bleachers and the wall above them. Make sure you click through the first link for all of Gary’s pics.

      Just wait until fans start showing up at Yankee Stadium in two months and are greeted with the House that Ruth Built amidst demolition. That’ll be shocking.
