NY Attendance

The NY Times has an article today on shortfalls in attendance at the two new stadiums in NY. I like this quote:

The empty seats are a fresh sign that the teams might have miscalculated how much fans and corporations were willing to spend, particularly during a deep recession. Whatever the reason, the teams are scrambling to comb over their $295- to $2,625-a-seat bald spots.

I find it hard to imagine there are really that many people interested in $2625 per seat tickets to an April baseball game even in the best of times.
