Ebbets Field - Brooklyn, NY

I made my way to apartment building on the site of Ebbets Field in July 2008. I couldn't find a place to park, and I was in a hurry to get to my last game at Shea Stadium, so I drove around the block and took a couple of crappy photos out the car window (not included here.) I never saw the cornerstone.

In May 2009, I used the Web to determine what corner the plaque was on, prior to arriving in Brooklyn, and I was determined to get a photo. I saw the marker from the car, and I scored a parking place just around the corner. My heart sank when I got up close to take a photo and found a pit bull chained to the railing.
