Funny to note on the Dodger ground how it turns its back on the skyline and faces the scenery. Had it been built during the last 5 years or so it would DEFINATELY be the other way around. Being a skyscraper nerd I do like the trend with facing the open ends of stadiums towards the skyline. Though that mainly works with North American cities, ha.

I like it though

If it were built today, they might have angled it more southeast, although they couldn't angle it directly towards the skyline, since ballparks can't face west, and really shouldn't face south either (Comerica Park is Detroit is the only one that faces south, so as to look directly into the Detroit skyline). This is because a ballpark that faces east (and to a lesser extent, one that faces south) would have the sun directly in the hitters' eyes, especially during night games during sundown. There's a pretty good amount of ballparks that actually face directly away from a skyline for that reason (Yankee Stadium, Shea Stadium, Wrigley Field, Dodger Stadium and the Great American Ball Park are all good examples of this - all have fantastic views of their respective skylines when looking backwards from the upper deck).

Although I absolutely love ballparks that look directly into a skyline.

I thought Stade Louis II, Monaco had slightly bigger capacity. About 30 000?

Stadium has great position and view, but couldn't they build underground or multi storey garages?

When you're talking setting, there are plenty of great examples.

It was built in LA - the ultimate place for cars - in the 1960s - the ultimate time for cars. Just about every ballpark/stadium was built in the middle of a parking lot back then. ALthough Dodger Stadium is the only stadium built in the middle of a parking lot that is in a beautiful setting - it's hard to do, but they pulled it off perfectly.

That parking lot is a nightmare to get out of after games though, and LA's public transportation system (which isn't that good or that extensive for a city that size, especially compared to NYC, Boston, Washington, Chicago, London, Moscow, etc.) doesn't even have a stop at Dodger Stadium, so driving is just about the only way there.

No, large parking lots are very common in the US. We like to drive, its just our culture. These parking lots are huge. To build parking garages rith the ability to hold the amount of cars that the parking lot holds would just be expensive and unpractical.

wow, could you imagine how much better the stadium would've looked if center field was facing downtown L.A. instead of away from it? it would've been breathtaking....
