The original "House that Ruth built" which housed the Yankees from 1923-2008, sits to the right (in this photo to the left) of modern-day Yankee Stadium, which the team moved into in 2009.

I saw two games in Yankee Stadium in 2002. It was pretty dated and worn down, but what always struck me was the sheer grandeur of it.

The original Yankee Stadium served as home to the New York Yankees for 85 years and became one of the most hallowed grounds in baseball. Time-lapse photography shows its dismantling.

Have a comment or suggestion?
