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.
Went to game 1 of the world series in 2000. While my team lost, I am far from a sore loser. Just the experience of going to a World Series Game should have been great enough, but my family and I got stuck sitting infront of some of the most obnoxious Yankee fans ever.
The best part of Yankee Stadium is it's history. As for a ballpark itself, not that special. The classics like Fenway and Wrigley have so much more personality.
Yankee Stadium doesn't have much of a neighborhood either.
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.
i went twice this season, once memorial day weekend and again labor day weekend that stadium is the best. I am truly gonna miss it but excited to see the new one. As far as the neihborhood i love it old cobblestone apartments, souviner stores all over the place. Newyork is the best place in the world. I am from california and outside of the weather newyork is much better.
We went for a game and actually got there a little late. It's probably best to take the train to avoid parking and tolls, but we drove and paid $10 to park in a nearby lot.
We walked down a well-lit street to the stadium, had our bag checked, and walked in to our seats.
It was an enjoyable 3 hours of baseball, with plenty of time to catch up on this or that in between pitches.
For about $50, you get a relaxing night out for 2.
