Vanishing New York — There are those of us who have never forgiven the Brooklyn Dodgers and NY Giants for leaving New York City, even when we get teary-eyed over memories of games with local heroes like Duke Snider, Carl Furillo, Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges and Roy Campanella playing for Brooklyn; and Willie Mays, Johnny Antonelli, Bobby Thompson, Eddie Stanky and Sal Maglie on the field for the NY Giants. See vintage NY baseball photos, including the NY Yankees in the days of DiMaggio and Mantle, Phil Rizzuto, Hank Bauer and Ralph Houk, in a special online exhibit by the Museum of the City of New York. Click through The Glory Days: New York Baseball 1947-1957 on the museum website. Take me out to the ballgame with a few clicks. It’s FREE. And this is an especially appropriate week to return to those glorious days of yesteryear, since April 15th was the 65th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier, becoming the first black player in the major leagues, for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
