NEW YANKEE STADIUM PROPOSAL ON THE TABLE
Published February 14, 1995
"Eccentric real estate developer" Abe Hirschfeld has proposed to build a new stadium for the Yankees, according to Richard Sandomir in today's N.Y. TIMES. The proposal calls for a new stadium to be built "across from the current site" and for Yankee Stadium to be turned into an Olympic Training Center and public recreation center. The plan also calls for a 15-story hotel to be wrapped around the new stadium "between first and third bases, with 300 suites looking down at the field" (N.Y. TIMES, 2/14).
