Re: “BREAKING NEWS: Oakland Picks Site for New A’s Ballpark

Having lived in Washington, DC, for the past three years, I have seen what stadiums can do for a downtown revitalization. The Verizon Center (nee MCI Center) turned DC's crack-infested downtown and Chinatown and turned it into a thriving city center. And building the new Nationals Park has brought new attention and money to what were essentially slums and Projects.

I believe bringing the Stadium downtown would be a great solution if it is the only way to keep the A's in Oakland. However, I also like Rebecca Kaplan's idea to revitalize the current ballpark and its neighborhood. Also, any growth needs to be accountable to the current residents as well as the wildlife in the area.
