They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway -- but the same holds true for Roosevelt Ave. in Queens. Here, the electricity from the neon designs outside the ballpark (and the thousands of watts of floodlight illumination both inside and out) courses through the old concrete colossus on gameday -- or night -- as the fans come out to cheer for their Mets. They won on this night, defeating the Washington Nationals, 5-2.
