"Last Days of the Polo Grounds" (1986-87). Polo Grounds, home of the New York Giants baseball team from 1890-1957, could be called the most history-filled structure in American sports. Abandoned by the Giants, who were moved to San Francisco, it later became the first home of the Mets. When they relocated to the new Shea Stadium, the mighty Polo Grounds was replaced by a housing project -- a typically grim testament to the draconian change that has characterized urban American life.
In "Last Days of the Polo Grounds" we are invited to stand before the generations of memories before the site that housed them is erased.
