The history of the New York Giants stadium, before the Giants franchise moved to San Francisco, lasted from 1883 to 1957. It featured all five of the franchise World Series wins and 17 of its 20 National League pennants. For most of that time, the Giants stadium played home games in the Polo Grounds in the Upper Manhattan region of New York City (see Giants stadium map).
The Giants original home stadium, the Polo Grounds, also dates from this early era. The first of the Polo Grounds was located north of Central Park adjacent to Fifth and Sixth Avenues and 110th and 112th Streets in the New York City neighborhood of Harlem as its shown in Giants stadium map. Upon eviction from the Polo Grounds after the 1888 season, the Giants stadium moved uptown and renamed various fields the Polo Grounds which were located between 155th and 159th Streets in the New York City neighborhoods of Harlem and Washington Heights. The Giants stadium played at the Polo Grounds until the end of the 1957 season, when they moved to San Francisco.
The Giants stadium final three years in New York City were unmemorable. They stumbled to third place the year after their World Series win and attendance fell off precipitously. While seeking a new stadium to replace the crumbling Polo Grounds, the Giants stadium began to contemplate a move from New York, initially considering Metropolitan Stadium in Minneapolis-St. Paul, which was home to their top farm team, the Minneapolis Millers (see Giants stadium map). Under the rules of the time, the Giants stadium ownership of the Millers gave them priority rights to a major league team in the area.
