Yankee Stadium, Texas Stadium nearing full demolition
New demolition photos of Yankee Stadium and Texas Stadium. Yankee Stadium is slated to be completely razed by this summer, with construction on a new public park on the site to finally begin at that point; Texas Stadium will be imploded in a shower of processed cheese on April 11.
Yankee Stadium's Gate 2, interestingly, seems to be more or less still standing, though the part of the grandstand that was behind it is now gone. So it's possible that the city Parks Department is still considering the plan to preserve it as a memorial to the stadium, though that will likely depend on whether anyone can find money to do so — especially given that New York City has enough money troubles of its own these days.
