Courtesy of a good friend of mine, Carlos Torres, here is some looks at the new Yankee Stadium from the inside…
Thank you Carlos.
Looking pretty amazing. Bare in mind the complete construction of the new Yankee Stadium is estimated to be around 1.6 billion dollars (including building of a new Metro-North stop at the Stadium). That’s almost three times as much as Citi Field (The new home of the Mets).
And then there’s the news today that the Yankees’ are asking for another $259 million in tax-exempt bonds and $111 million in taxable bonds, on top of $940 million in tax-exempt bonds and $25 million in taxable bonds already granted for its $1.3 billion stadium. Not sure the team had in mind the economic spiral we’re currently in, when they planned this out in 2001.
