Long Description:
This stadium was open from 1976-2010 and was eventually replaced by Met Life Stadium which is just to the east. During the time it was open, it was the home stadium of the NY Giants and NY Jets and hosted many other college games. This stadium was also the venue for the 1994 World Cup, and they replaced the artificial turf with natural grass for these games. The NY Cosmos also played here when the North American Soccer League was active.

Personally, I had seen a college football game and one NY Jets game here and two of the aforementioned World Cup games.
