DONALD TRUMP BACKS STEINBRENNER ON WEST SIDE STADIUM
Published September 26, 1995
Donald Trump reportedly backs a plan to build a new Yankee Stadium on the West Side of Manhattan, according to this morning's N.Y. DAILY NEWS. Trump: "If [Yankee Owner] George [Steinbrenner] picked up the phone and called, I would be there in 15 seconds. No question. I would support anything George does." In a DAILY NEWS column, CBS' Pat O'Brien reports that Trump favors a site behind Madison Square Garden and Penn Station, with "10 stories worth of parking" and serviced "by every form of rail and MTA there" (N.Y DAILY NEWS, 9/26). In a commentary in today's USA TODAY, Tom Weir urges that Yankee Stadium not be closed: "Having proved last October how temporary it can be, baseball needs some newfound permanence" (USA TODAY, 9/26).
