— Days Without Shea —


From the Queens Tribune:

The City's Department of Transportation has made Shea Stadium's demise official. All signs, it appears, now point to Citi Field. From the College Point Boulevard exit of the Long Island Expressway to the Northern Boulevard exit on the Grand Central, "Citi Field" now covers where "Shea Stadium" used to be.

The last change lies with the MTA, who have yet to change the signs for its "Willets Point/Shea Stadium" stops on the LIRR and subway. A spokesman for the authority said the new stop will be named "Mets/Willets Point" and expected the new signs to be placed by opening day.

I remember reading the MTA was trying to get $$ out of Citibank before they would but the bank's name on the signs.

So our taxpayer $ paid to bail out Citi, paid the DOT to put up new Hwy signs... they should have just did the same thing the MTA is doing this way they wouldn't have to change them if the stadium changes name again.

The subway signs have changed already:

And the LIRR signs were being changed yesterday.

I would have thought they would have sold the old signs. I honestly thought about just snatching one but I am too chicken.
