Demolishing and salvaging the old Yankee Stadium

New York City is looking for demolition companies that think they can tear down Yankee Stadium without damaging any of the seats or other pieces that might be sold to collectors.

The razing of the famous ballpark is scheduled to start in March and last as long as a year, according to a solicitation form issued by the city’s Economic Development Corporation. The first stage of the demolition will involve salvaging all of the stadium seating as well as some large features like the white frieze that adorns the wall behind the bleachers and the 120-foot-tall bat-shaped boiler stack outside the main entrance.

See Ya! Demolishing Yankee Stadium, Carefully

Gee, I hope Always Fast puts in a bid. Not only will the work get done fast and not carefully, but they may even tear down the wrong stadium!

Putin a call to Tommy Huang (& Sons).

He'll be sure to get the job done overnight and without the necessary permits!
