Old Yankee Stadium Balconies
Saved for the People of New York!!!
After extensive communication and lobbying with Mayor Bloomberg, the Parks Department, and the Design Commission, the City of New York has accepted the plan of the Committee to Commemorate Old Yankee Stadium & HistoryOfTheYankees.com to preserve the original balconies from Old Yankee Stadium Gate 2, pictured above, for the People of New York!!!
These treasures, previously slated for complete destruction, will now be permanently displayed at either Old Yankee Stadium Park (formerly known as "Heritage Field"), or at an appropriate museum, as attested to in the attached letter by the Parks Department to the Committee to Commemorate Old Yankee Stadium. Accordingly, the City's previous plan to totally destroy the balconies has been scrapped instead.
We thank the City for this decision and pledge continuance of our full devotion to further commemorating Old Yankee Stadium, working around-the-clock toward a majestic park design and national landmarking of the greatest site in the history of American sports!!!
See you at the Vigil, on Sunday, April 18th, at Old Babe Ruth Plaza!!!
(Noon to 1, before the Game across 161st street, at NYS)
