8. Ebbets Field Remnants
What was once the illustrious home of the Brooklyn Dodgers is now a hulking 24-story housing project. Its name, Ebbets Field Apartments, is one of the few reminders of its baseball history. Tragically, a sign reads “No ball playing.” Behind a bush, under the building’s address number is a cornerstone inscribed with the words “This is the former site of Ebbets Field.” The year 1962 is shown inside a baseball to mark the year the apartments were constructed. In a parking lot within the complex just off of Sullivan Place, a forgotten plaque on the sidewalk marks the original location of the Ebbets Field home plate.
