THE HOUSE THE SKILL SETS BUILT The Daily News has a picture of the new Casa de Wilpon and it looks fabulous. Here are just someof th emenities: {According to a plan submitted to the Empire State Development Corp., the exterior will be reddish-brown brick and limestone, with concrete arches and exposed steel included to resemble bridges. The stadium would open to provide a view of the northern end of Willets Point. A restaurant in left field, enclosed with glass, will be available for season-ticket holders, while a second restaurant will be located in the upper level behind home plate. Plans also call for the three-deck stadium to include suites behind home plate, below the main concourse. Among the other features touted by the Mets: Wider seats angled toward the infield, and more leg room. A main concourse that encircles the stadium. A rotunda at the entrance reminiscent of Ebbets Field, the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers.} There is a small pic of the ballpark I'm trying to find a larger version as the this pic doesn't to the ballpark the justice as the bigger one does in the paper. The only drawback with the new park is we won't be able to afford the new ticket prices. < |
