Stadium Easier to Build than Schoolyard
It's buried on page 29 of today's Daily News, but the Juan Gonzalez column on the Yankees may be the best story of the day.
The column points out that All Hallows High School still doesn't have a home baseball field that was promised to them in 2006 by both Mayor Bloomberg and the Yankees. The field was one of the sweeteners to the community in exchange for using parkland for the new stadium.
Here's the operative section: "Somehow, the new stadium has opened on time, the Yankee garages are on schedule, and the new Metro-North station is done. Only when it comes to replacing the community's lost parkland are huge delays acceptable to the Yankees and Mayor Bloomberg's people."
