The new and the old ….

Spent a good part of this brisk afternoon touring Citi Field, but the memory of the day was to peak inside to see the dismantling of Shea Stadium. Most of the seats are out. Headed to rec rooms throughout the tri-state area, no doubt.

There’s rubble throughout, with a patch of green in what used to be short left field. The action montage that lined the facing the loge level is all but gone. There is one word, “Believe,” from the montage that remains, and a Subway Ad in the right field corner.

The grass has been in Citi Field for a couple of weeks now, and you can tell this will be a magnificent place to watch the game. You’re right on top of things.

Two things the Mets promised you can plainly see. That would be the leg room between the seats and room in the concourses.
