The latest word on demolition is: (from JT)
They will be going clockwise starting in RF by Gate 6. The loge level will be removed first and then the upper deck. The original exterior walls will be deconstructed last and pulled inward using bulldozers. Total demo is to be completed by Spring 2010.
The next Parks Dept presentation to the NYC Design Commission will probably be on August 10th (the July meeting was cancelled). We need to have a good turnout/presence for that meeting. The final Parks Dept. design for Heritage Park is scheduled to be finalized/approved by the end of December 2009. The Design Commission has asked Parks to incorporate more historical elements in their revised design.
As Yogi said: "It ain't over 'til it's over"!
Thanks to JT for the information.
