The Yankees definitely need a new stadium. People who think it's "nice" have never been there. Granted it's nicer than Shea but not by much.

No, lol it's much nicer than Shea. That's not really saying much though. They both need new stadiums.

I wouldn't say much but that's just my opinion. Unless it's been changed since '03 when I was there last. The seating, eating area and bathrooms are pretty bad at both. The field and the park are beautiful, the rest of it is a dive compared to the modern stadiums.

The bathrooms, etc. are pretty bad but we'll agree to disagree on the park. I hate going to Shea. You can see right out of the back of the stadium into the parking lot. :-P

They should have closed down Landsdown St. and ripped it down years ago. Baseball should be played on grass, on large symatrical fields, and with wooden bats. Doubleheaders on Sunday would be nice.



Oh, I disagree with this 100 percent... Stadiums should be unique. Have some personality...

Whenever every politician in NY is firmly behind something, you can bet your a** that it is a bad thing and corrupt to the core. This is strictly a money making enterprise for the fat cats and corporations. Geirge will make money, the politicians will make money, the Unions will make money, the Wall Street crooks will make money and buy most of the season tickets, the real estate people will make money. The only ones getting screwed will be the average fan who already can't afford good tickets. When the new Stadium is 95% season tickets holders paying $100 a pop or more per seat per game, how will this help the avg fan? When he can go he can get his 5 dollar hot dog faster with a nice view of the field from the concession stand?

There is nothing wrong with the current Stadium itself. It is the parking and road system into the place that blows. That can be dealt with independent of a new park.

Good question, I hope so.

Yanks04: I kinda feel like the stadium is already tough to afford for a lot of people. A family of four going to a game has to shell out what, $150 dollars at least, just for tickets in the upper deck? I don't know that building a new stadium will have THAT much of an impact on ticket prices, which would be rising anyway. And the righ getting richer is pretty much the same old story, unfortunate as it is, and I think you can safely say the same about the current stadium. I hear you about the roads though, I don't know what they're gonna do about that mess.
