Out With Old And In With New

An article by posted on February 20, 2009

Here are some stunning pictures from CitiField taken this week. You can click on each image to view a larger picture. Thanks to Stadium Page for the new photos, and make sure you visit them to see even more shots of our new park. 

With Shea Stadium gone, the focus now shifts to our new baseball cathedral. 

The view from the left field foul pole shows you all the little angles and the unique seating. (Yes the foul pole is orange!)

 

With wider seats and more legroom, watching a Mets game has never been more comfortable.

 

There are so many beautiful views everywhere you turn. I wonder if either of the foul poles will get a nickname?

 

All that remains of Shea lies in the old homerun apple which will be out of view in bullpen plaza for those who still want to get a look.

 

The Pepsi Cola sign is reminiscent of those old baseball meccas and will be a nice backdrop out over right field.

 

What a breathtaking view from this angle…
