Shea Stadium comes apart

October 10, 2008 12:23PM

Shea Stadium is being taken apart and the city Parks Department is distributing some of the stadium’s parts to other facilities. City parks, pools and other facilities are getting some of Shea’s bathroom and light fixtures. Hundreds of parks workers have until next Tuesday to remove all the urinals, seats and signs before the demolition crew moves in. Special crews hired to remove memorabilia took all sorts of items, including the outfield wall, and another group removed the stadium seats which will be sold for more than $800 a pair. The Parks Department’s Stadium Director Anthony Rizzo is overseeing the dismantling of Shea.
