Cousin Bob drives by Shea every night while coming home from work. Last night, he reported that the lights were on and crews were hard at work.
They had a crane going in the outfield and the seats in the right field upper deck
appeared to be gone already.
A few of you have also sent along this link from the NY Daily News' site today
. They have published a short slide show chronicling the deconstruction project so far.
The city is taking Shea's spare parts to use throughout the Parks system.
I gotta be honest: it is really freaky to see photos of Shea getting dismantled. In January we moved to a new house
. After three kids, the Kingman brood had outgrown our original home. We had to do it but seeing the old house still brings back memories. And (geniuses that we are), we only moved around the corner so I see my old house every day! The new owners are doing construction too so I'm living this slide show all the time.
