Yankees groundbreaking okayed by court

As widely expected, New York state judge Herman Kahn today rejected a request for an injunction against the start of construction on a new Yankees stadium, saying "the entire project could become non-viable if construction is delayed." The team is now free to go ahead with its official groundbreaking ceremonies tomorrow morning at 9:30.

As for actual breaking of ground, that's already been going on since last Friday; the Yankees started fencing off Macombs Dam Park from the public on Sunday, without waiting for the court ruling.


If anyone can make it tomorrow a.m., Save Our Parks will be holding a demonstration at the groundbreaking ceremony. This is expected to be at the SW corner of Macoombs Dam Park, by 161st St. and Jerome Ave., at 9:30 a.m. Let the Yankees know what you think ! !
