  • Guaranteed to have the time of your life


    I was eager to go to Opening Day at Shea last week was to see the Citi Field construction. Checking out the blogs during the winter was tantalizing -- at first it was hard to tell from the photographs exactly what was missing. Until I saw references to a demolished "Passarelle Extension." Only one thing could have such an idiotic name: that big cylinder with the spiral staircases beneath the ramp from the Willets Point subway station.
