A great stadium
The New York Yankees moved to their current home in 1921, when the ownership of the team purchased the current plot of land from the estate of William Waldorf Astor. Mr. Astor had owned much land in New York, including the land on which another New York landmark is built; the Empire State Building. The famed hotel, the Waldorf Astoria and a section of Queens named Astoria are also named after members of the Astor family. The land was purchased for $675,000. Today the value of the land is worth several hundred times that. Prior to the purchase of the land, the New York Yankees shared a stadium, the famed Polo Grounds with their rivals, the New York Giants. When Yankee stadium was first opened, it was considered a marvel of design, with a seating capacity of 70,000 and three levels. Amazingly, it took only 284 days to build the famed New York Yankee stadium. Considering the Empire State Building was built in a year; it may have been a sign of the times. In contrast, the brand new home of the New York Yankee took more than double that time to complete.

Today, there are several private parking lots in the area to accommodate parking your Bronx car rental. The stadium was also was adorned with a copper ring around the top which became a distinctive feature of the famed New York Yankee stadium.
