NY Mets Citi Field

NY Mets Citi Field Stadium - Lot #15, Roosevelt Avenue, Flushing, NY, USA

Citi Field (named for CitiCorp) was built to replace Shea Stadium, which first opened in 1964 adjacent to the site of the 1964–1965 World’s Fair. Home of the New York Mets, Citi Field’s design was largely inspired by Ebbetts Field, which was the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1913 to 1957. The seats are green in homage to the Polo Grounds, the original home of the Mets’ namesake—the 19th century baseball team named the New York Metropolitans. In 2007, UBS provided scaffold stairs and a Material Hoist during the construction of the Mets’ new home.
