New York City stadium plans

In a Newsday opinion column, Raymond J. Keating presents some figures on stadium finance/subsidies for the Mets, Yanks, and Islanders. He opposes "doling out sports welfare," as do most of us here, but such is the political equilibrium across the land.

One interesting tidbit: apparently the new stadium for the Mets is modeled after Ebbets Field, which sounds pretty cool.
