A Closer Look at the New Yankee Stadium

Seth Pinsky, head of the New York City Economic Corporation, has a piece in the Daily News attempting to silence the haters who are not in support of the construction of the new Yankee Stadium.

He explains that new jobs for Bronxites, a new Metro-North station, increased tax revenue for the city, and the Yankees agreement to stay put in the BoogieDown for 40 years (among other benefits) are win-wins for all parties concerned.

He also reminds us that not getting hit in the head with falling concrete from the 86-year-old Yankee Stadium is a good thing.

We know not all of you living in the immediate area will agree with Mr. Pinsky that this is a "home run" for Bronx residents... let the comments begin.
