SOUTH BRONX - Many Bronx residents are dismayed the old Yankee Stadium wasn't preserved in some form instead of being torn down.

The demolition at the old stadium has moved along recently, with what was once center field now a gaping hole and the stands completely destroyed.

"This is history in the making," says Christopher Santiago. "They could have made it into a museum or something. They didn't have to destroy it."

The 10 acres now occupied by the old Yankee Stadium will be converted into parkland once the demolition is complete, city officials have said.
