A stadium will ruin these homes


How would you like to live in this Art Deco apartment building across the street from a park filled with 80 year old oaks?

Now how much would you like it if the city gave your "front yard" to a rich baseball team to build a 14 story stadium?

I wouldn't much like it, either!

It depends on what you mean by "ruin". If it's private property then it's likely the property values will go up, along with property taxes. I guess that means the riff-raff living in those apartments would have to move, making way for richer riff-raff. Ha!

I think the idea of living right next door to Yankee Stadium is very tempting, indeed! :0)

Then I wish the Yankees would come and build in your front yard! Oh by the way, show me where a stadium has improved property values.

Well, in a way, I can understand. The Bronx is changing and, along that, the perceptions of it slowly changing as well. I know you've read the same Real Estate websites and papers. People with money are starting to move in. So those properties you've mentioned will be coveted by people who are priced out of Manhattan.

Ironically, you hope that the old perceptions would remain so that you won't have to move out. ;0)

In this age of terrorism, crowds make great targets. Why didn't New Jersey want to build the Steinbrennber Stadium on their swampland? Where is Homeland Security?

Maybe the Yanks can build their new stadium outside Steinbrenner's house in Tampa.
