Let's see. Yankee Stadium? Nope. Citi Field? Not that one either. The new Giants Stadium? Good guess, but incorrect. What we have here is yet another new stadium in the metropolitan area, flying under the radar out in Harrison, New Jersey. What team will call it home? Here's a hint: it's called Red Bull Park. Still nothing, huh? It's for the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer, and when we looked at the plans for the new $220 million stadium, it was just one part of a massive mixed-use development that would also include 800 apartments?all on the shores of the bucolic Passaic River. Of course, those were the heady days of 2006, so your guess is as good as ours as to the fate of that master plan.
