From 1923 to 2008, the Bronx’s Yankee Stadium became one of the grandest, most impressive and intimidating sports arena in the country’s history. Hosting championship boxing matches, professional and college football, papal visits and more, the Yankee Stadium was the heart of the Bronx borough.
In over 200 vintage photographs, local authors Gary Hermalyn and Anthony C. Greene reveal the only Yankee Stadium book that discusses the stadium in the context of the Bronx development.
