Yankee Stadium Falls Short of Neighborhood Promises

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Baseball's World Series is set to kick off tonight, pitting the New York Yankees against the Philadelphia Phillies. The first two games of the World Series will be played in the new Yankee Stadium — a hulking white structure that opened in the Bronx in April 2009. The modern stadium was built at a cost of over $850 million, including taxpayers' money, and came with the promise of improving the low-income neighborhoods surrounding the ballpark. We speak to Ailsa Chang, reporter with WNYC, for a look at whether the new stadium is living up to that promise.
