Reality hitting harder

The sight is impossible to ignore, and so is the reality.

I took this photo of the original Yankee Stadium en route to the new place. There’s an opening that offers a view of the ongoing deconstruction of “The House that Ruth Built.” Tom Kaminski takes frequent overhead shots from the WCBS News Radio 88 chopper; his latest gallery is here. And Mike Vaccaro today provided an update on how far along the process is already.

As the summer progresses, it’s going to be a whole lot tougher to look at either from the 4 train or across the street.

Funny, when I left Manhattan, the sun was out. When I got here, it was pouring. Now it’s clearing up again, ever so slightly. I think we’ll have baseball tonight.

3:30 p.m.
The sun is out!
