Bye Giants Stadium - Hello New Meadowlands

The Meadowlands

I don't consider this a photo essay, but was lucky enough to get on one of the last tours of the New Meadowlands Stadium before it officially opens later this summer. For those of you that don't know, it is located in East Rutherford, NJ and will be replacing Giants Stadium. It will be home of both the New York Jets and Giants.

The stadium still had that new car smell which will certainly go away after the first game. I found it refreshing that the stadium wasn't named after a major corporation, although that's likely to change. I enjoyed the tour, but I missed the memories of the old stadium and especially the colorful red and blue seats. Glad they're being recycled.

    great series. while not a football fan, I did get to visit the old Giants Stadium for a concert recently, and I'll be going to another at the new one, so it was nice to get a little preview. well done!
