    #3 makes for a nice story. And it’s a “correct” fact according to the wiki. But that is not why the Yankees did it.
    The drunks were loud and ruining their night. Sammy Davis Jr being there was incidental.
    This has been well researched and collaborated by Yankee interviews.
    The wiki should really be corrected from the “feel good story” to the correct one.

      They were not “the equivalent of a penthouse in the modern day”
      The buildings got smaller as they were higher (up to 9 stories). Upper floor rooms were very small.
      1st floor homes were large and had running water.
      Today, modern penthouses are large with greater amenities than lower floors.
      Ancient upper floors were equivalent to studio apartments. The only thing they had in common with modern penthouses is the floor location.

    #18 so I guess this is why scientific papers have to be written so opaquely. Sounds really flimsy, imo.
