Opposition to the New Yankee Stadium
November 11th, 2005

Curbed has picked up on a blog from the Bronx, called Save Our Parks, formed in opposition to the new Yankees stadium. It’s made up of “local residents who are opposed to the taking of Macombs Dam and Mullaly parks by the Yankees for a new stadium.” They are also worried the increased traffic will aggravate health conditions in an area already called “Asthma Alley”.

They have an in depth review of the recent Draft Environmental Impact Statement(pdf).

Neil deMause at Field of Schemes has been keeping tabs on the developments of the new stadium as well. This blog looks with “a critical eye on the roughly $2 billion a year in public subsidies that go toward building new pro sports facilities.” Chalk full of anti-stadium goodies.
