NEW SITE FOR NEW YANKEES STADIUM? METS DISCUSS NEW DOME
Published September 18, 1995
The latest site for a possible new stadium for the Yankees is the Yonkers Raceway, according to the N.Y. POST. The site is reportedly backed by NY Gov. George Pataki. Anne Lang reports that the "objective is to make Yonkers Raceway so attractive" Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner "will forget he ever heard of New Jersey" (N.Y POST, 9/16). DOME TALKS SERIOUS FOR METS? The N.Y. TIMES reports that the Mets and the city are "talking seriously" about plans for a dome right next to Shea Stadium. Preliminary estimates from the Mets are that the new stadium would reportedly cost about $457M, with about $105M of that for parking and road improvements. Mets Senior VP and Treasurer Harry O'Shaughnessy said previous plans for a large entertainment center on the sight of the old stadium "have been scrapped" (Pam Belluck, N.Y. TIMES, 9/15).
