DEIS: Project description; Retail & restaurants


Draft EIS states:

Retail. The main team store selling Yankees’ merchandise would be at two levels in a prominent location, allowing entry from within the stadium. Two smaller satellite stores selling Yankees’ merchandise would be located away from each other and from the main retail store to allow for better access to retail outlets for fans throughout the stadium. Novelty stands would also be provided throughout the concourses, distributed proportionately at high-traffic areas.

Restaurants. An approximately 300-seat restaurant located at street level would provide yearround operation with direct entry from outside the stadium, as well as access to the stadium concourse


The proposed new retail and restaurants will likely compete with local businesses. This should be examined in greater detail in the DEIS.
