What can New York’s ballparks – from the gone-but-not-forgotten Ebbets Field to today’s reimagined Yankee Stadium and Citi Field – tell us about the evolution of our city? Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger, author of the new book Ballpark: Baseball in the American City, sits down with author Kevin Baker to discuss the connection between the physical transformation of New York’s ballparks and America’s changing attitudes toward cities and shared civic space, past and present.
