    They have to replace park land that they took away in August of 2006. While they haven't been hauling out over the last five years, time is an import factor, and they probably didn't want to delay further.

    If they started the process in 2008 they would have had lots of bricks sold and manufactured before they even started on the park itself.

    This is very interesting, thanks for sharing. I hadn't heard anything about this. Kind of odd but it is nice to know where the old field was nonetheless.

    So can you just walk up to the piece of the facade at any time?

    Yeah. It's kind chilling to be able to touch it after years of seeing it up so high. I'm kinda worried about vandalism though... it would be really upsetting to see it covered with graffiti.

    I went up to it and touched it, it's a pretty uninspiring hunk of cement. It's not original Yankee Stadium frieze, which was copper and melted down in the 70's renovations. This is the replica version from the outfield in renovated Yankee Stadium. It's not particularly interesting to me

    Yes but I am 27 and people of my age group, both a bit older and younger, this is the Yankee Stadium we grew up going to. "Real" frieze or not, there is still an emotional connection with it.

    But if they did that, the regulation field would have had too much outfield overlap with the little league and softball fields.

    Yeah, I know. I was just speaking theoretically.
