Drilling for oil?

A few days ago this truck appeared with drilling equipment near the running track at Macombs Dam Park. Confidential sources reveal that preliminary tests show that the drill has encountered sand and water instead of the “terra firma” needed to support a mega-structure such as the proposed Steinbrenner Stadium.

Perhaps more luxury boxes are equivalent to oil for Steinbrenner – especially when he wants $200 million of our tax dollars to “re-create” separate and unequal parkland.

Actually, it's been there for months.

Yes, and what an absolute "slap" to the users of the park to have to do an "end-run' around this equipment in order to enjoy the park!

The City's conribution to Mssr. Steinbrenner's architectural/planning studies for the "new" stadium (year and after year, in rent rebates off the rental of the city's very own Yankee Stadium): $5 million.
The cost of encountering "sand and water" when drilling to start the construction process of "Steinbrenner Stadium": priceless!

Yes, imagine that? There is a river under River Avenue. That is why there is always water running down the track on the D line in the station. That is also why a park was place there instead of buildings. It seems that city planners had common sense in the old days.
