Ballpark reviews

Paul Goldberger lauds Yankee Stadium and trashes Bloodsucker Field: http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critics/skyline/2009/03/23/090323crsk_skyline_goldberger

The result was I wanted to know more about Paul Goldberger. It seems he is an Upper West Sider born in North Jersey: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Goldberger

Definitely the person you want to compare the Bronx Bombers’ new Harlem River-hugging ballpark with the Mets’ new home. No chance at all that this guy has an ingrained prejudice for one franchise over the other, or for one type of location for a ballpark instead of another. I’m sure he’d have the same opinions if he were born in Flushing and lived in Hempstead.

Adding a twist to his wisdom, he faults the Mets’ stadium for recalling the National League’s former urban New York settings, while at the same time faulting the stadium for being located in the Mets’s own traditional park-like environment.
