Iconic Façade Comes Down From Old Yankee Stadium as Part of Demolition

Even Babe Ruth would have trouble recognizing the old Yankee Stadium now.

"It's an end of an era," Yankees fan Maria Abbamont, 44, said Thursday as she watched some of the panels be removed Thursday.

Dabbing tears from her eyes, the Westchester County mom gazed at construction workers sawing off giant concrete slabs high above the old outfield wall.
