Same Place, Different Views
Yankee Stadium's impressive entrances remain one of its trademarks. When I was a kid, Red Barber (perhaps because of his years broadcasting from tiny Crosley and Ebbets Fields) often referred to it as "The Big Ballpark." And that soaring granite exterior topped by golden lettering is certainly distinctive. Now, enter the number 4 subway (the elevated line that runs alongside the Stadium) and notice how differently that same Gate Six area captures your eye.
