A New Era Evokes An Old Era

The new Yankee Stadium — shown in an artist's rendering — rises on its site across from the current field.

A rendering of the new Yankee Stadium reveals an architectural ode to the old. The vertical-arched entryway evokes the entrance to the 1923 arena that called itself home to Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle, among many other big-name players.

The colonnade and arches that circle the exterior, shown in an artist's rendering, will lend a Roman air to the experience in the new stadium.
