The Refurbishment of Yankee Stadium

Fascinating footage that I found tonight via River Ave. Blues and the RAB Bullpen.  Shot between 1974 and 1975, it shows the guts of the old palace being ripped apart and rebuilt into the "remodeled Stadium."

This is where my "holy land" was changed and, because of this, the charming people in NYC politics wouldn't designate it with landmark status.  Thus the House that Ruth Built became the House that Giuliani, Bloomberg, and Steiner tore down to open the House that George Built across the street.

The new place is fine.  It's just not this place and it never will be.
