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.
To visit New York City and skip Yankee Stadium is insanity. This is an American icon, even though it was virtually rebuilt in 1976. Most young people don't even know it's not the original facility, so who cares? Sitting in the bleachers is an experience, because the fans out there are so nutty. Yankees tickets start at $12.00. I can't comment on parking, because the five times I went, I either walked from the hotel or rode the subway/elevated train. The neighborhood around the ballpark is kickin' on game days, so you'll have fun walking around. The restaurants range from not cheap to McDonald's. The stadium's in pretty good shape, and does not need to be replaced by any means. But, alas, the team will move to new digs by around 2011. So, check it out before it's gone. Oh, the upper deck seats are high, but good.
You must see the Yankees in this stadium b4 it is to late. Monuments of all the old players was a must see if you are a true baseball fan. Avoid the bleacher section. Bathrooms are old and smelly. Get there early for batting practice. Fans are the best part. Were really nice and friendly.s
The typical game at Yankee stadium is full of atmosphere. It's a great place to bring your kids, fans are polite...even to visiting fans. No matter where you sit, you can see the game. One special feature of this park is Monument Museaum. The numbers of famous Yankees are proudly displayed as retired...no one else can use that number again.
My advice to going to Yankee Stadium is to buy your tickets off e-Bay. You can get great seats for pretty cheap. The good seats can't be bought from the box office and scalpers charge an arm and a leg.
Taking the subway is the easiest way to get there from the hotels. You should leave a couple of hours before gametime or you'll miss the start. During the week the subway is crowded with people trying to get home from work and Yankee fans.
I've been to better stadiums, but for history and atmosphere this place is one of the best.
While the neighborhood is not the best, but you can get on the subway and get right off outside the stadium. The subway is sure to be filled with fans and it's not a bad ride up to the Bronx. Just be sure to get right back on the subway after the game. Don't go roaming the neighborhood looking for "ambience". You'll find it!
Remember that this is the famous Yankee Stadium. It's so full of history. It's a good place to see a game and no pricier than any other ballpark. Best of all the greatest team in history plays there. What more can you ask for?
This is one of the greatest ball parks ive ever been to in my life! The atmoshere here is incredible from monument park to the great new york fans its defenitly a great place to visit with friends and family. Conveniently located next to yankee stores and bars so if yoou wanna grab or shop for yankee memorabilia they are just a step away. highly recommended for the hard core yank or baseball fan
Okay, so even though I despise the Yankees, I have always made it a trip to attend games at whatever city I visit. So, of course, I had to go to the House that Ruth Built.
Yankee Stadium is a great place to watch a game. The subway lets out just at the stadium, so it is easy to find your way there. Even for a Red Sox game, it only cost me about $20 for the tickets (upper tier, above first-base, alcohol-free section).
One thing that I have to give them credit for--the Yankee fans (despite what you may have heard) were as nice as any fans I have ever met. Unlike Dodger Stadium, Fenway, or even Wrigley at times (all of which can get pretty rowdy), the Yankee fans were very polite. Though they teased the Sox fans, they were in general kind and relaxed, just enjoying the game together.
The only low point: Yanks win, 2-1.
I am a huge fan of the yankees, so when i got the chance to go on a tour of the stadium i did not want to do anythign else, i would give up shopping for a day. thats how crazy a fan i am. funny story, when i was coming home on the plane, i have matching shoes(white with blue laces) with my yankee jearsy on and my yankee viser while holding my yankee flag.
I just wished that the team was there,but they were away playing games. I do wish to see a game live.
Having seen 20-plus ballparks, I'd put Yankee in the bottom quarter. It was substantially rebuilt in 1970s, so Babe Ruth wouldn't recognize the place. Expensive seats, far from the action, $8 beers, $8 hot dogs, tight concourses, cranky fans. Fenway Park is expensive also, but at least the fans were more fun, and it still feels old-time. Monument Park is worth a visit, but get in line as soon as the ballpark opens. If you're collecting great ballparks, visit Boston, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Baltimore before spending money at Yankee.
