NYCFC revives plan for soccer field near Yankee Stadium

NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Soccer’s New York City team and the Yankees have revived plans for a 25,000-seat soccer stadium near the baseball park in the Bronx, seven years after a proposal fell through.

New York City’s Economic Development Corp. said Friday it is attempting to put together a deal that would include a soccer stadium built on the site of current parking lots along what was the first-base side of old Yankee Stadium. The old ballpark was torn down in 2009 and replaced by parkland to make up for park space used for the new Yankee Stadium, just to the north.

The project would include land currently occupied by a factory and a ramp to the Major Deegan Expressway.

Maddd Equities would partner in the project, which envisions a hotel, affordable housing, a school and retail. Bondholders of the parking lots, which have performed poorly, also are part of the deal, which would cut parking spaces from 9,300 to about 6,300.

Yankee Stadium adding 2 more social gathering areas

NEW YORK (AP) — A pair of social gathering areas are being added to the second deck of Yankee Stadium, cutting seating by 500 to 800 seats.

New York said Monday it is adding the Stella Artois Landing to sections 232A and 232B in left field and the Michelob Ultra Clubhouse to sections 207 and 208 in right field. Both areas, which are covered because they are below the top deck, will be accessible to fans with game day tickets and will be available as pregame party spaces for groups of 20 or more.

Isn’t the stadium itself a social gathering area enough?
