Macombs Dam Park
A large park situated next to Yankee Stadium, Macombs Dam has all the athletic amenities, including a baseball diamond that sits in the footprint of the 1923 Yankee Stadium. The Parks Department swapped land with the Yankees when the new stadium was built, so the new stadium sits on the old Macombs Dam Park and vice-versa!
A very large community park at River Ave. to the Harlem River bet. E. 157 St. , W. 161 St. and E. 164 St. in the Bronx
Founded March 18, 1897 — 124 years ago
