In the early 1950's, Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley was looking to replace Ebbets Field. He focused on a site in downtown Brooklyn at the intersection of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues. His goal was to privately finance a domed stadium on the site. His efforts were opposed by Robert Moses who only offered the Flushing Meadows site which would later contain Shea Stadium and Citi Field. When his efforts were foiled, O'Malley moved the Dodgers to Los Angeles.
