Yankee Stadium (Yankees) on the bottom, the Polo Grounds (Giants) at the top. Yankee Stadium is in the Bronx and the Polo Grounds was in Manhattan. The body of water that separates them is the Harlem River.

The Yankees and Giants both played at the Polo Grounds, but the Yankees got too popular and built their own ball park (the first baseball park to be called a stadium) within seeing distance of the Polo Grounds.

It's honestly hard to describe to people why it's so comfy to go to a football game at the U of M (Montana). It's nestled right next to a river, featuring a mountain canyon (Hellgate Canyon to be precise). When it was built the ground was heavily dug-out on the playing surface, so it could get even lower compared to the mountains and the stands. The seating is also mostly modern, so it feels like you're on top of it.

People who have been in those sort of stadiums know what I'm talking about. Smaller sure, but damn near flawless in other ways.

Cityscape CAN be great for a stadium but only at evening or night. Otherwise it's just there.

My favorite first broke ground two years after I was born. I don't give a fuck how old it is. When it comes to stadiums it's about the people and the place. Of that you should be vary particular.

A mediocre team can be spectacular because of it's fans, and the stadium.

I have never had a fondness for football or rugby stadiums because of how far away they put you from the action. They can be elegant, beautiful even but it doesn't matter because when I sit there trying to see the players, I can't see shit from any seat.

Depends on the country and age of the stadium. British stadiums are traditionally really close to the pitch and they don't have any barriers and are at pitch level due to Hillsborough. Main reason why most classic stadiums around Europe like Anfield, Camp Nou, Ibrox, etc can't host any important finals or anything like that. German stadiums usually have a big drop from were the stand ends to the pitch level. For some reason, Italians fucking love to put athletic tracks in their stadiums which doesn't help either. Most old british stadiums still have the stands really close to the pitch (pic related Ibrox). Arsene Wenger used to complain about losing the pressure from the stand when Arsenal moved from Highbury to the Emirates in 2006.

Has to be done correctly, all I'm saying.
It's a tragedy when that much budget is thrown in and you don't get something great. Not implying anything, just saying. Seats should be configured so you can see the action even in the nosebleeds. I tested this in my favorite stadium and even in the worst seat you could see everything.

Some designers are just spot-on.

One time we almost lost to a team I swear because we were wowed by their stadium. We were a much superior team but we came into something that looked like that, only totally green and dark. Like a darkwood forest.

We got so relaxed playing there we almost lost our three games series. Top-level type venues.
