New Yorker Article on the New Stadiums

Nice piece in the New Yorker about the new New York stadiums opening this season:

HOME: New Stadiums For The Yankees and Mets

"There is nothing so revolutionary in Yankee Stadium’s replacement, which opens just to the north, across 161st Street...the new Yankee Stadium, designed by the architectural firm HOK Sport, is effectively an attempt to atone for the brutal 1973 renovation of Ruppert’s building, which removed the historic ambience without adding much in the way of modern amenities. HOK has reincarnated the old stadium, but with clearer sight lines, luxury suites, plenty of places to eat, and, finally, sufficient bathroom facilities."

Hot. And only a few weeks away...woot!

Some good advice from the legendary Ray Stevens.
