THIS JUST CAN'T HAPPEN.
Please help us by bringing awareness to this story. My friend and college Rob Gaeta (Big Baseball Fan) and General Manager of a soon to open Hotel Le Bleu in Brooklyn New York told me this story and I got so mad and could not believe that this relic of Ebbets Field is not on the National Registry For Historic Places.
WE MUST TAKE ACTION ANYONE COULD TAKE IT DOWN.
Rob tells me that when they selected the location for the Hotel Le Bleu in Brooklyn that he was told to look across the street. The man told him that was where Ebbets Field once was. Rob, being a big baseball fan was out of his mind. Then the man said, see that wall over by the Con Edison Truck Depot, that is about 20-foot-high, over there by the loading doc. Rob said yes. That is all that remains of Ebbets Field.
My friend Rob was out of his mind that this wasn’t on the Registry. Rob gave me two links
