This plaque commerates the approximate location of home plate. It is located on the southern side of Tower D. Tower D is the north-western most of the four Polo Grounds Towers.
This and the next five photos are of the "Brush Stairway". The stairway was built in 1913 in order to allow fans to decend Coogan's Bluff and get to the stadium. While not physically part of the Polo Grounds, it is the last remnant of the old ballpark.
The inscription reads "The John T. Brush Stairway Presented by the New York Giants".
This and the next three photos are from Coogan's Bluff. At Polo Grounds I, fans could see inside the ballpark from this spot. If you look in the distance you can see Yankee Stadium on the other side of the East River.
The plaque in the first picture is mounted on the tower on the left side of this picture. New Yankee Stadium and Old Yankee Stadium are on the left and right of the tower in the center of this picture.
