RFK Stadium officially set to be demolished

Date:

It’s time: RFK Stadium, simultaneously an endearing vault of decades of sports fan nostalgia and a rusting behemoth on the banks of the Anacostia River, is officially set for demolition.

The National Park Service gave the green light for the demolition in an announcement Thursday, saying that after evaluating the demolition’s impact on the “natural, cultural and human environment,” federal officials determined it was okay to proceed. Officials said in an April 29 report that demolishing the stadium would have “no significant impact” and that steps would be taken to “avoid and minimize negative effects.”
