How Much Is That Stadium In The Window? (Village Voice news blog)

Barely two weeks after I wrote about the rising public costs of the new Yankees stadium, those costs have risen yet again:

Baseball may be a game of numbers, but this is ridiculous: Sports fans (or just concerned taxpayers) who opened their morning paper today could read that the city cost of building new parks to replace those obliterated for a new Yankees stadium had risen 48% to $190 million, and also 122% to $288 million. It’s enough to make WXRL seem easy to understand by comparison.

The explanation, it turns out, is that it depends on what you mean by “parks”…
