After the NY Times looked at Yankee Stadium's cracked pedestrian ramps—some cracks are "as much as an inch wide and several feet long"—in the new $1.5 billion structure, the Department of Buildings headed to the Bronx. DOB Commissioner Robert LiMandri issued this statement, "Engineers from the Department of Buildings visited Yankee Stadium today and inspected all of the walking ramps with visual cracks. They determined that the cracks do not affect the structural stability of the ramps and do not present any safety concerns. The Yankees have told the Department that the cracks will be repaired at the end of the season."
