— Days Without Shea —

Last September, we made a little photo essay of the subway ramp from the 7–train down to Shea Stadium. We knew the ramp was coming down as part of the off-season construction. Here is what the ramp looked like back in September 2007:

Not seeing the familiar ramp on Opening Day was a bit disconcerting. Here is what it looks like now when you leave the subway and head out the doors to Shea Stadium:

And here is the view from outside the new “ramp:“

The most odd view is this one, when you’re looking out from Shea Stadium towards the subways:

Instead of a human river flowing down towards Shea, you now see ants marching out from under a canopy. Someone mentioned this might be a temporary structure. I presume that must be true because the current solution looks pretty goofy.
