What other parks do you think are landmarks?

Wrigley and that's it.

I would have said Yankee Stadium, but since they're going to build a new one in 4 years, kinda disqualifies it from being a historic landmark doesn't it?

The Capitol isn't in Philadelphia anymore either, but it's still historic ground. ;-D

Fenway, Wrigley and Yankee Stadium are the holy trinity of stadia. They should all be landmarks.

Isn't this what they did to Tiger Stadium? Is that still standing?

I think it should be a landmark, along with wrigley. Do you know how much I would love to see Ebbets field or the Polo Grounds? It may be uncomfortable, but it is something that should be preserved.

EDIT: I'll add Yankee Stadium to the list, depending on what they plan on doing with the replacement.

Ditto on Ebbets and PG. It would just be cool to have a ballpark in the middle of Manhattan. Of course, it probably would have been bought and renamed Trump's Diamond or something.
