Its been just about a year since Shea Stadium entered the final stages of demolition. The photo above is from February 7, 2009. By this point, only about 1/3 of the "horseshoe" was still standing with nearly all of the concrete seating plank demolished. Basically all that was left was the structural steel.
It was definitely an interesting time. StadiumPage.com was churning incredible traffic numbers which caused the site to completely shut down for days at a time due to fans looking to see the latest phases of demolition. We were getting linked to and mentioned all over the press including the NY Times and Daily News. Pretty amazing for a little site that I run by myself.
Anyway, that was a year ago. Just 14 days until Spring Training and 2 months to Opening Day 2010!!
