The 1923 Yankee Stadium is a historic landmark in the world of Major League Baseball. Some of the sport's greatest players have spent their careers there, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, and Joe DiMaggio. Though they'll never be able to replace this monument, the franchise debuted their new stadium in 2009, directly across the street from their old park. The "new" Yankee Stadium has many new features, such as expanded walkways, more concessionaires, and a renovated Monument Park. Lifetime fans will notice familiar touches, though, the biggest among them being the outfield frieze back in its original location around the upper deck. Suite and party facilities are available for those looking for something slightly more private. Check website for pricing, schedules, and other info.
A baseball fan for 50 plus years, I finally made it to a Yankee game at the soon to be gone Yankee stadium. A wonderful experience well worth the cost of an overnight in NYC and all the excpense that went with it. Purposfully got in the stadium area 3 plus hours before the game, hit Stan Sports Bar on a recommendation of a co-worker and added to the experience. Went to a very good little Puerto Rican cafe, the Milano Roja, in the area above the subway stop and it was wonderful. Then to the stadium and the memorial park which must be taken in for the full Yankee experience. The subway to and from was super, the crowds while active and spirited were no problem. NYPD everywhere and contributed to the evening with their security blanket. A super memory for years to come!
If you are a baseball fan, you have got to go Yankee Stadium at least once in your life. The atmosphere is amazing, from the loyal Yankee fans chanting to the action on the field. You will get a magical sense when step in this historical field, where great players, like Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle played in.
If you ever get the chance, visit Monument Park, where there are plaques of the greatest Yankee players. There is also a row that shows the retired numbers of great Yankee players. You will never have an experience like than Yankee Stadium
**By the way, take the SUBWAY to Yankee Stadium, NOT A CAR because there is so much traffic**
Going out to a baseball game is a must tourist activity. A great experience and a wonderful way to meet New Yorkers in a pleasant environment. Found fans friendly to Canadians and the atmosphere was great fun. Tickets can be bought for a reasonable price so this is a bargain activity. Highly recommended.
One can not go to New York without going to the "House" that Ruth built. It was very interesting. The fans were rather rude towards the visiting team, but the game was good. I would not have wanted my grandchildren there. The language of some of the fan was offensive. The stadium itself is in perfect condition. It will be a shame to say good by to the old Yankee Stadium. We had gone to Shea the night before. They do need a new stadium. Getting to both stadiums on the the subway was easy. Getting back was also very good. They handled the crowds well.
This was our second trip to Yankee Stadium. we sat in the bleachers (only complaint, you can't get into Memorial Park if you have bleacher seats). It was great! I also had our names put on the board during the 3rd inning "welcome" and it only cost me $10. I snapped off pics for the scrapbook. We got hot dogs and souvenior cups and the prices were not too bad for a ballpark.
You have to get to the original Yankee Stadium before they tear it down!
THE NEW YORK YANKEES ROCK!! THEY ALWAYS HAVE AND ALWAYS WILL!! Grew up in NEW YORK... enjoyed numereous visits growning up. Was back there in 2006 for Stadium Tour. If you have never taken one... better do it now...before the new one opens.....it's a classic... sure to be missed!
