The Babe and the Iron Horse will watch on from outside Yankee Stadium — but in a new locaiton. The two Yankees stars will continue their visual presence on the avenue outside Yankee Stadium on two murals. With a nearby mural featuring the famous Yanks slated for demolition, the local 161th street Business Improvement District commissioned two artists —Lexi Bella and Danielle Mastrion — to paint portraits of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth on the gates of Stan’s Sports Bar.
