With the final bulldozers schlepping off the remains of Shea Stadium, it appears that they've officially paved paradise and put up a parking lot.

But Shea lives on...in space. Mike Massimino, the astronaut who made headlines with the inspirational first-ever tweet from space last week, also brought a home plate from Shea onto the Hubble Telescope mission he's aboard. Massimo is a native New Yorker, lifelong Met fan and apparently loves Sting.

And it certainly didn't take long for the name Shea Stadium to be reappropriated by the cool kids around town. Brooklyn Vegan reports thatthere is a new all-ages venue coming to Williamsburg with the same name as the old home of the Mets. One of the commenters on the indie rock blog responds to the news, "I love how pretty much every hipster now owns a Mets t-shirt." Well good luck asking one how Pelfrey looked tonight the next time you spot an Amazins tee at Santos Party House.

And the second-most overpriced seats in New York continue to be torn up at the old Yankee Stadium up in the Bronx. The House that Ruth Built probably hadn't seen this many blues on the field since Billy Joel's medley of "Piano Man," "Honesty" and "Only the Good Die Young" back in 1990.
