Hello.
I grew up in New York, but moved away several years ago.
I come back to visit every three months or so, but only recently started taking the subways.

I'm going to be taking the subway from Grand Central to Yankee Stadium for an evening game next month.

My question is this... Should this be relatively safe? I go all over the place. I don't worry, but I'd like to know what to expect. I figure on game nights the trains should be full of ticketholders, but I also know the area around the stadium isn't the greatest.

It doesn't seem very realistic to use any other mode of transportation from midtown Manhattan. Any information would be very helpful.

The subway will be pretty safe, particularly because of the influx of riders to the stadium. The neighborhood's a lot better than it was in the early 90s and whatnot, but stick with the crowds if you're uncertain.

Slater
March 8th, 2004, 08:22 PM
Thanks. From what I remember since I did go to games in the 80's (although never by subway), the train lets you off pretty much right at the stadium. Am I correct? If that's the case I won't be wandering around the neighborhood. I'll have my ticket in hand and I'll head right for the gate. As for the ride to the stadium itself, I'll just do my best to blend in knowing now that there should be plenty of people going to the same place as me. Thanks again.

Slater, not to worry, you'll be fine. The subway is full of fans of all ages excited to see the game. It drops you off on an elevated platform right next to the stadium. You can either go directly into the stadium or grab a beer at one of the sports bars under the subway tracks, like Stan's Sports Bar (the beers inside are ridiculously expensive). The area around the stadium is quite safe now and pretty festive.

Slater

Thank you everyone for the replies!
I'm really getting excited about going back to Yankee Stadium again. First time I'll be back in about 20 years.
And first time ever by subway, but thanks to your help my mind is at ease.

I'm going to NY at the start of July and there are 2 games on while I'm there Detroit and Tampa Bay, I am looking to go to the Detroit game.

I was going to buy some tickets online as I really want to see a ball game, but do you think that tickets will still be available on the day or while I'm there? (Is there a panic for tickets? I don't want it to sell out!)

Also I have read about the Yankee Clipper which takes you to the game is this a worthwhile way of getting to the game, I imagine its quite an experience, any better ways of getting to the game?

Any advice on travelling to the game and ticketing would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

PS I think you will be hearing a lot from me as I have so many questions about so many things that I want to do during my stay!

Detroit and Tampa Bay don't usually sell out, but it's summertime and the week of Fourth of July - kids are off from school and a vacation week. While there will probably be seats available at the gate on game day, they won't be as good as what's available now.

Tip: If you have a choice between seats at field level in the outfield, and third tier behind home plate, take the seats behind the plate (dark purple on the map). They are high up, but a better view of the game - and the stadium.

The Yankee Clipper is a good choice for sightseeing on the East River. Information at http://www.nywaterway.com/

The view from the bleachers isn't too bad. The best part about the bleachers is the atmosphere, i.e. the bleacher creature roll calls and other assorted chants and the clockwork like rumbling of the 4 train behind you.

KingPacino
April 26th, 2004, 10:01 AM
I'm taking my girlfriend so would you recommend the bleachers or pay that bit extra for some seats in the purple tier seats behind the plate as suggested?

Any tips or things I should know before going to the game?

Thanks for any help

ZippyTheChimp
April 26th, 2004, 12:48 PM
The bleacher seats (especially in right field) are as good as the more expensive outfield box seats.

Safety is not an issue anywhere in the stadium. The "Bronx Zoo" of the 1970s is long gone. The bleachers, and a few other sections, are alcohol-free zones.

I suppose the one negative of the bleachers to a first-time visitor, is that there is no access to the rest of the stadium. If you choose the more expensive seats, get there early for batting practice (gates open 1 1/2 hours prior to gametime). Depending on the crowd situation, you may be allowed to wander near the infield - maybe say hello to a player.

I wish, trying to get tickets to those games are like gold dust but as Leeds are playing so rubbish and are probably going to get relegated into the division below then we won't even be able to play them! :(

But your right they are fantastic matches, I have been lucky enough to go to one of those matches and the atmosphere is incredible.

No, lots of people wear visiting team's hats. You might get heckled a little, but it's all in good fun - I'm sure it wouldn't ruin the experience. However, if it's a Boston hat the heckling would likely be more than just a little, and rightfully so. ;)

Will this ruin my experiance of being there? Unless it's a Boston hat you won't get abused too bad. If you were to wear a Boston hat to Yankee Stadium I don't suggest sitting in the bleachers with that on. Also Yankee Stadium doesn't usually sellout until almost gametime unless it's a series againest the Mets or Red Sox. But lately we've had crowds of over 50,000 and a few over 55,000 so you never know.

What would be the best way to get there? Take the #7 subway (Flushing bound) from either Times Square or Grand Central to the Shea Stadium/Willets Point Station. Or take the "E" or "F" trains to Roosevelt Avenue and transfer upstairs to the #7 train (Flushing bound) subway to the Shea Stadium/Willets Point Station. From the station it takes about 3-5 minutes to walk to there.

If you're staying in Times Square and want to go to Yankee Stadium, you could walk to 42nd St and Sixth Avenue and take the B or the D which both stop at Yankee Stadium. Keep in mind that the B does not run on weekends. If you're on the East Side, like a previous poster said, take the 4 train.

A bunch of my friends and I are going to a yankee game on 9/24. We are looking to gather at a bar after the game for some drinks. Does anyone have recommendations where to go that are walking distance from the stadium?

Also I would like to take public transportation from my place in Yonkers to Yankee stadium. What is the easiest route to take?

THANKS!

Behind the stadium under the subway tracks there are some sports bars. On River Ave. there are three: Stan's, Billy's, and the Bowling Alley bar which just says "Sports Bar and Grill" with a bowling pin. Around the corner on 161st St. is the Yankee Tavern, and there's also the News Room on Gerard Ave. They're all so close you can peak your head in and see which suits you best.

Schadenfrau
September 16th, 2005, 11:51 AM
I think I've mentioned this before, but the Newsroom is closed. The building is gutted at this point, so I'm not sure what's going on.

I'd suggest the Yankee Tavern for a post-game bar. Stan's gets really wild, and the bartenders at the Yankee Tavern are great.

As for the public transportation, you should take the Metro North to the Fordham stop and then switch to the downtown D to 161st Street. The 4 train isn't running from Fordham until November.

There is this one scalper that I buy from sometimes. He usually stands at the top of the stairs that you take to exit the station after getting off the 4 train. He's a black guy in his early 30's, medium build, usually with a Yankees hat on. I've bought off him several times, he always has good tickets and his prices are pretty reasonable.

Two other options would be EBay or Craigslist.

macreator
September 22nd, 2005, 07:10 AM
Personally I wouldn't rely on scalpers, either order from Yankees or show up at the ticket booth the day before or grab them off of Craigslist.

I haven't had good experiences with scalpers.

The regular season for Major League Baseball (MLB) doesn't start until the beginning of April. In mid-March, all teams are still playing exhibition games (spring training) in Florida or Arizona. As for American Football (NFL), the season ended with the Superbowl 2 weeks ago and won't begin again until September. Therefore, no regular MLB and definitely no football in the middle of March.

You can get more info (schedule, buying tickets online, etc.) on the Yankees' official website (http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/index.jsp?c_id=nyy).

As for getting tickets on game day. It all depends on such circumstances as the team they're playing against (rivalries and good opponents are almost always sold out in advance), the day of the week it is (weekends are more likely to be sold out versus weekdays). There will also be scalpers on hand during game day but they charge a premium for those tickets. Good luck and hope you enjoy watching the Yanks win another World Series this year.

MattUK
February 18th, 2006, 09:08 PM
whats your opinion of purchasing tickets from touts (scalpers) are they usually genuine? if not do they still get you in AND how pricey are they

Also, how about college football, is that off till september aswell?

also, any chance you could give me a direct link to a list of games in mid march or training or whatever as i cant seem to find anything on the Yankee's site.

Thank you again! x

February 19th, 2006, 04:22 AM
Having trouble? It took me just one click on the Yankees' official website to get to this (http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/spring_training/y2006/tickets.jsp?c_id=nyy). ;)
Bear in mind that those spring training games will not be in NY.

College football's schedule mirrors the pro's, so yes, they too will be off for the summer.

I've never bought tickets from the touts (or scalpers as we call them here), but they don't seem to have a reputation for selling fake tickets, so I think they will be fine. I'm not sure about the price but expect a considerable mark-up(maybe as much as 10X the face value), depending on demand, of course.

Hope that helps.

You could always see an Arena Football game...definetly no where near and good as NFL, but still fun to watch. New York Dragons would be the team to look at.

What is the difference in arena football etc?

CraigyB10
February 20th, 2006, 04:29 AM
The Arena Football field is a padded surface 85 feet wide and 50 yards long from goal line to goal line, with end zones 8 yards deep. The goal posts are 9 feet apart and the crossbar is 15 feet above field level (compared to 18 1/2 feet and 10 feet, respectively, in NFL and NCAA football).

There are two goal-side rebound nets, 30 feet wide and 32 feet high, at each end of the field. Each rebound net stretches from the outside of an upright, along the end line. The bottom of the net is 8 feet above the ground.
The ball is the same as that used in the National Football League.
There are eight players on the field for each team. They play both offense and defense, except for the quarterback, the kicker, the kick returner, a designated offensive specialist, and two designated defensive specialists. The defensive specialists replace the quarterback and the offensive specialist when a team is on defense.
Arena football allows only one substitution per position per quarter, except in the case of the specialist players.
On offense, four players must line up on the line of scrimmage, and three defensive players must be down linemen. Defensive linemen aren't allowed to stunt or twist. One linebacker is allowed to blitz on either side of the center.

One receiver is allowed to be in forward motion at the snap.
To open a half or to resume play after a score, a team kicks off from its own goal line. If the kick goes out of bounds, it's awarded to the receiving team at the 20-yard line or at the spot where it went out of bounds, whichever is most advantageous.
If a kickoff or missed field goal attempt comes back into the field of play off a rebound net, it can be fielded by the receiving team.
A team is given four downs to move the ball 10 yards for another first down or to score. Punting is not allowed. The offense is given 25 seconds to put the ball into play.
Passing rules are as in college football. A receiver needs to have only one foot in-bounds while making a catch. A forward pass that rebounds from a net remains a live ball and may be legally caught until it touches the playing surface.
Scoring rules are the same as in the NFL and NCAA, with two exceptions: A conversion by drop kick counts 2 points and a field goal by drop kick counts 4 points.
A game is made up of four 15-minute quarters and each team is allowed three timeouts per half. If the score is tied after regulation time, there's a 15-minute overtime period.
Each team gets at least one possession in overtime. If one team is ahead after each team has had a possession, that team wins. If the score is still tied, the overtime becomes sudden death and the first team to score wins.
If the score is still tied after 15 minutes of overtime, the game ends as a tie.

I'm wondering if native New Yorkers think it is safe for a single gal to go to a Yankees Stadium by herself for an evening game. I've got a ticket, and will be heading there by subway from Mid-town. I'm just wondering if someone has thoughts on the subway ride and the neighbourhood. Thank you.

You're safe as long as you don't wear a Red Sox hat! The Yanks are so popular now that they can draw 50,000 people for a weeknight game against the worst teams in the American League. There are tons of people in the Yankee Stadium neighborhood during game time along with plenty of cops. I recommend taking the No. 4 train up there because significantly more people use this subway line than the B or D. It also runs more frequently so you won't have to wait as much.

Had no problems - 55,000 people (about 15% were Red Sox fans) in attendance and apart from various chanting about teams & players sucking; it was a well behaved affair.
Saw no problems, fights etc either at the Stadium or on the subway to & from the game

I'd advise to stay out of the bleachers, but the rest of the stadium should be pretty safe for you. I had sox fans sitting near me in 2004 for game 7 of the ALCS, it was very civil... and if it stayed civil in that game, i think that any other game should be the same.

Atmosphere also depends largely upon the opponent. If all things are equal, the Friday night game will have the 'liveliest' atmosphere. Weekend day games tend to get more families (in my experience).

Also, wanting to see New York Yankee play Blue Jay (From Vancouver here). I went to Yankee website but it seems all the tickets are sold out. I went online and checked ticket site, but they need to send tix to me and I think I will be gone before it arrives here.

As far as tickets, I assume the Yankees are like any other team, people will be selling their tickets at the stadium on game day.

Hmmm...Breakfast mystery eh? Nope, not about Breakfast at Tiffany. I guess it's good to start a day with a good breakfast. Imagine having a bad breakfast and already feeling pissed off to start your day. The location thing I guess is because we wake up hungry and if we have to travel 45 minutes to good breakfast diner, then we have to travel for 45 minutes hungry.

Thanks for the info...I'll do a search.

Roach, my question about the importance of breakfast wasn't really so much for you as it was for everyone asking about it on this forum. I figured that the breakfast in the title would catch their attention.

There seems to be this idea that NYC is a big breakfast town, when I'd bet that if most New Yorkers eat breakfast at all, they do it on the run, or in the office. Maybe New Yorkers just value dinner more than people from other areas? That's what I would consider the most important meal of the day in this city.

Hi,

I'm visiting New York and want to buy a ticket for a Giants football match and have a few questions.

1) Are Giants football tickets available on the day of the match (in my case okt 29)

2) Are Giants football tickets private and non-transferable ? Do they carry the name of the owner and is this name checked at the entrance ?

3) I may be able to buy a ticket for upper level, zone 303 ? IS this a good place to see the match

Sorry for all these questions but I'm from Belgium and I'm not familiar with New York and the Giants football stadium going on's.

NY Giants (http://www.giants.com/gameday/schedule.html) : Sunday, 10/29/06 --1:00 PM Play HOME against Tampa Bay BUCCANEERS

As I mentioned in my previous post I will be visiting NYC for the first time in May and would like to take in a Yankees game. I have checked a website and they are playing Seattle on the dates I am there. Can anybody recommend the best place to sit? I don't know much about baseball, but would like to experience the atmosphere. Also, what time do the games start / end?

Thanks again for all of your help!

Im not a Yankee fan so I couldn't tell you the best seats. Im sure they have seating charts though at Yankee stadium and you can determine what's your best value cost and viewing wise. You might also want to buy off a scalper because by law they are allowed to sell tickets but not above the price the box-office is charging. If its a scalper out in the open, its worth taking a look.
Games are normally played at 1 and 7 pm. If its a weekday its normally played at 7 pm. I would recommend taking the subway to the stadium and as far as the time to arrive, thats entirely up to you. Some fans arrive several hours early to see if they can get autograph's or talk to the players, I don't know if they do that at Yankee stadium, also to watch batting practice. I would still arrive early if you've never been to Yankee stadium, they have a section dedicated to Yankee greats in left-field. The line to this area is always long, when I was there, someone offered me $20 to cut ahead of me in the line, which was just enough to cover a hot-dog and a soda.

As far as where to sit, I'm not into baseball enough to make a recommendation. I've found that I enjoy the crowd, or rather the effect of the crowd on the experience as much as the actual game. As a result, when I used to attend games I found myself enjoying the cheap seats more than the "good" ones, if only because it was more of my crowd. Namely, a bunch of families and cheapskates enjoying beers and hollering and having a good time. I found the more expensive seats to be much to serious about the game for my tastes. 2cents

I'm an avid baseball fan, and I have advice for novices before they go to their first game:

(1) Learn the basic rules of the game from a book, website, etc.

(2) After you learned the rules, watch a game on TV, preferably with someone who knows the game.

You have no idea how much better a time you (and the people with you) will have if you know a little about what you're watching at the stadium.

Football is America's sport, but NYC is unlike the rest of America. NYC is definetly a baseball city, it is not uncommon to see baseball on the front page of the backpages (sport pages) in its offseason, during the football season. Basketball is NYC's second sport. Football and hockey fall far behind. For the atmosphere I reccomend attending a basketball game at MSG, tickets arent as hard to come by as they once were as the Knicks are perennially bad, you cant beat the atmosphere at MSG though.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. In an ideal world, Frank would get tickets to a Knicks game at MSG during his stay from Dec. 30 - Jan. 5. The atmosphere is... well, it can't be defined. Unfortunately, as I already said, the Knicks are not playing there that week.

Given this constraint, Frank has two options:

(1) Not go to any Major League games during his vacation here, or

(2) Carefully look over the schedule I put up in my previous post and go to one of those games.

So that leaves me with Jets Vs Oakland Raiders NFL

Public transportation is available to the Jets games at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. Buses leave from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and a round trip ticket costs $9. There are usually people selling tickets in the lobby of the bus terminal before each game.

It's best to leave Manhattan about 45 minutes before the game starts. Coming back after the game usually takes a bit over an hour (factoring in the time it takes to load the buses and then the traffic at the Lincoln Tunnel).

Gunslinger
November 27th, 2006, 08:34 AM
How into NFL are you???

I love football but again wouldn't recommend going to a game with no idea of the rules etc. The atmosphere will be amazing (I've been to the Meadowlands when the Giants play and figure Jets fans are likely to be as vocal) but depending on who you go with, quality of seats etc - not sure you'll get too much of an idea of what is happening

Definitely worth doing some research on the game if you're unsure of the rules etc before going
I also found the game hard(er) to follow in the stadium, than on TV - especially if the seats aren't the best

That said, you'll probably still have a blast - get to know the people around you at the game - explain it's your first and they may well look after you (to a point!!)

On gamedays, the trains are packed on their way to yankee stadium. It is a very safe area and I have never had any problems with the ride at all. The train to the Bronx zoo also seems safe (only taken the train once), albeit its a bit of a walk to and depending on what line you take it could take a while before you reach Manhattan. I also took the express bus to the zoo, was a nice ride (but more pricey) and still a bit on the slow side.

Since no trains run directly from West Point to NYC (both Amtrak and MetroNorth serve the opposite side of the Hudson River), you need to specify which railroad you plan to take (since those two RRs use different stations in Manhattan).

If using Metro-North, get off at the 125th Street station in Manhattan and transfer to the No. 4 subway (uptown) and take it to the Yankee Stadium/161st Street station. If using Amtrak, get off at Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan (the last stop), walk one block east to 6th Avenue/West 34th Street and take the uptown B or D subway to the Yankee Stadium station.

New Train Station for Stadium

By WILLIAM NEUMAN

A Metropolitan Transportation Authority committee yesterday approved a $91 million plan to build a Metro-North Railroad station that would serve the new Yankee Stadium, which is under construction in the Bronx. The station is expected to open in June 2009, about two months after the Yankees are scheduled to begin playing in their new home. The station will operate as a regular stop on Metro-North’s Hudson line and will have added service for baseball games, M.T.A. officials said. The transportation authority and the city are to share the cost of building the station, which is meant to handle up to 12,000 passengers after a game. The full board of the M.T.A. is expected to approve the plan tomorrow.

Because D does not run through Penn Station.

Remember that on the weekends PATH from Journal Square to NYC goes through Hoboken - so you not only have to transfer at Journal Square but add another few minutes to the already slowish PATH ride. It will take at least 40 minutes from Newark to 33rd St.

So just take a NJT train and hop on the A to 145th where you transfer to the D (not the B, which doesn't run on the weekends) to 161st.

I'm going to a game at Fenway Park this Saturday and then the Yankees game on Sunday at 1 pm.

My and my buddy (road trip!) will be leaving Boston as soon as we recover from our hangover and check out of the hotel.

So, Sunday morning we need to drive 200 miles through Connecticut and get to Yankee stadium. Where can we park the car? It seems the subway is the best way to get in and out of the staduim.

Both of us have been to New York and seen the sights, so I'm not really worried about hitting tourist spots and such - I'm adept enough at getting around once we get to a subway station. After the game we are heading out of the city back to Pennsylvania that evening. Where the cheapest and easiest place to park the car and make it in time for the 1 pm game from Boston?

Wild card yes, catching the sox not.

you know it is not out of the question about catching the sox. 6 out but we are only in august, and we have 6 games left with the sox. not that far fetched at all

It is entirely possible to catch them. Teams have come from further back and much later in the season than this.

If I remember correctly (forgot the exact year), the Phillies once was ahead by 7 games with 7 games left to play and managed to lose the lead on the last game of the season.

Only 5 back again. Joba looking like the real thing. Hughes is impressive. Everything's looking up for the Yanks.

The same can't be said for the Red Sox. Morale is down in Beantown. Gagne just blew a lead for them and Okajima just got beat by the Orioles. :)

Finally, someone beat Okajima. He has been unhitable(sp?). And what do you know its the hometown Orioles.

I definitely think we can catch the Sox. Its like 1978 all over again.:eek::D

August 12th, 2007, 05:20 PM
OMG, the Red Sox implosion continues! :)

Okajima and Gagne combined again to blow a lead and now Kevin Millar, a former RS no less, hits a walkoff homer to win it for the O's.

4 back and closing in. Folks up north are feeling quite uneasy right now. :D

For anyone reading this thread in the future, don't listen to Dornbirn's nonsense about the Bronx. You'll be perfectly safe at either a day or night game. The only person looking to rob you is George Steinbrenner.

Yea, I went to a night game and felt perfectly safe. Not once was I frightened or scared. There are thousands of other people, nothing to worry about. Although, it was VERY VERY VERY hot and humid in the subway station because it was pouring down rain and everyone was trying to get some cover from it. This one drunk guy said it was like entering Satan's ass hole.:D

Even if it is a "sellout", I've always been able to score tickets from some character standing outside wanting to unload them. There are not as many as there used to be, but you CAN find them. And if you want to gamble and wait until the game starts, you can get them at a good discount. I wouldn't recommend that unless you're really cheap or simply cash strapped.

Oh, and I've never felt unsafe outside the stadium or in the surrounding streets. There's too many people.

We're going to New York this year and are planning a visit to Yankee Stadium at some point. We have the option of watching them play Los Angeles (Day/Night) or Baltimore (Night). What would be the best game to see in terms of Atmosphere and Tension.

Also what kind of Tickets would suit us with regard to Price/Atmosphere/Accessibility to the Bar :D, there seems to be many options available. (Ps. I believe the Bar Prices in Yankee Stadium are a bit Heavy but hey, you only live once :))

I would see Yankees vs. Los Angeles. There isn't a real rivalry between either team. The Orioles will be a really bad team this year, they won't be competitive at all. The Angels have a good team and are always competitive against the Yankees, I believe historically they are the only team to have a winning record against the Yankees.

Elixir
January 13th, 2008, 01:58 PM
Thanks for the Reply. LA it is then. Just need to decide whether we go to the Day or Night Game now.

Whats the best form of travel To/From Yankee Stadium. We'll be located near Penn Station so would assume Subway would be good idea, do they run extra services around the Games?

January 13th, 2008, 02:31 PM
A great way to go to Yankee Stadium is to take the Ferry (http://www.nywaterway.com/event/baseball-cruise.shtml) up the East River to the game and then the subway back down afterwards.

You may want to get tickets well prior to gametime. This is the last year of the stadium and tickets will be tough to get for most games. Of course if you have the cash, you can always find one from a scalper at the right price. But I don't know if that's part of the NY experience you want to take part of.;)

I would pay the extra and get the lower level seats, as close to the field as possible. They're more pricey, but you get the true feel of the stadium downstairs.

Elixir
January 16th, 2008, 04:55 AM
I'm planning on getting tickets as soon as I can. The Trip is already booked so we know when we'll be there. Had an idea that it'd be difficult this year with the new stadium in sight.

The Clipper looks great. Have a similar thing in Manchester to Old Trafford but the view isnt quite the same on the Manchester Ship Canal :). This is our first time to America so we're really looking forward to it and these forums have been brilliant. Getting together my list of cheap bars, good pizza and Subway Directions (I can get to Yankee Stadium and Coney Island on the 'D' Train now, in my head of course)!!

Thanks for all the help.

we will be in New York in August for 2 Yankees games. flying into Newark airport. What is the best place to stay (someone told us to stay in Seacaucus for better hotel rates) that would be relatively close to Yankee stadium? And the best way to get from airport to a hotel?? and from hotel to Yankee Stadium? Any suggestions would be appreciated...
thanks,

We will be going to the Yankees game this Friday (June 20). We are driving in from Connecticut before the game and then driving to New Jersey immediately after the game. I have been told that parking is terrible at the stadium. Any suggestions where I should park and then take public transportation? Thanks.

You can give "126th street Parking Corp" a try. It's located on 126th street between Morningside ave and Amsterdam ave in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan (or West Harlem). You're also close to the D subway which takes you directly to Yankee Stadium (approx. 3 stops to 161 River Ave...but make sure it's running local at the time of the game). Good Luck! :)

Hi,
I am taking one of the chinatown buses from boston to new york this weekend. I have no idea how the NYC subway works, but basically i want to get from chinatown to yankee stadium. Can anyone please give advice on how to accomplish this?!?! :confused::eek::confused:

I'm not very good with the subway system(s) either, but I know the 4 train (http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/fourline.htm) goes through Yankee Stadium and Canal St., which is pretty much right in the middle of Chinatown.

Hope this helps,

Hey hynespb, if you don't see the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/4_16.gif train at the Canal St. station, just take the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/6_16.gif train uptown to the Union Square station and then transfer over to the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/4_16.gif.

Or you can also take the uptown http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/d_16.gif train at the Grand St. station (Grand & Chrystie Sts.), which will take you to Yankee Stadium as well. This station is probably closer to where the bus will let you off anyway.

By the way, I forgot to add that the Yankee Stadium/161 St. station is a local stop for the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/d_16.gif train, so if you are on an express train (stops only at select stations along its route), you might want to get off at the 145 St. station and transfer over to a local http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/d_16.gif train.

If he is taking the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/d_16.gif train in the afternoon beginning at around 4, he would have to transfer to the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/b_16.gif at 145th street, not the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/d_16.gif. The http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/b_16.gif is the only line of the 2 that makes uptown "Local" stops, including 161st River ave Yankee Stadium, during the afternoon and evening on weekdays. Best to take the http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/images/4_16.gif train to avoid any confusion.

I agree that the 4 is a better idea, but the MTA actually does a decent job of letting you know whether a particular train will be stopping at Yankee Stadium or not. The trains are always packed witih people who are clearly taking their first trip on the subway, and I've never seen anyone miss it yet.

Hello Yankee fans.

I have a friend staying up in the Bronx in the Woodlawn area. We're meeting at Yankee Stadium for tomorrow's game. Can anyone recommend an easy to find landmark (outside the stadium or at a local bar)? She has the tickets and I need to meet her for us all to go in together.

Nothing too obscure as neither she nor I know the neighborhood - AT ALL.

Thanks!

I'd suggest the Yankee Tavern on the corner of Gerard and 161st, a block east of River Avenue. It's generally not as wild as Stan's, which is directly across the street from the stadium.

This is probably a stupid question, but I'll ask anyway. Is that parking deck open 7 days a week? I'm going to the game this saturday. We're staying in Jersey, then checking out on saturday morning, going to Yankee Stadium, then leaving from there and going straight home.

Also, how much does it cost to park there? Do they charge by the hour, flat rate, etc?

Thanks in advance!

Hi People
Not sure if this is allowed - Mods - feel free to remove if breaking of rules ...

Have 2 tickets for Yanks game against the Cubs on 04-03-09 in the Grandstand Section - 425 Row 7

Basically myself and some friends from Chicago are going to the game - but a cousin of there's from Texas can't make it

Going spare and just want to recoup some of the cash I've laid out - especially as there is a chance I can't get the cash from these friends

If anyone interested please PM me - arriving in NY on Tuesday and happy to meet beforehand or at the game & exchange tickets for cash

I am not a scalper - just hoping someone there may want to see the 1st ever game at the new stadium

Cheers

My husband and I are going to the 5/4 Yanks/Red Sox game. This game is on a monday NIGHT. I'm assuming that the game will end somewhere between 10-11pm. My question is, how safe is it to ride the subway from the Stadium to Journal Square in NJ? How populated is the subway at that time of night on a monday? I know that when we leave the game, there will be alot of other people on the subway, but I guess I'm worried about that crowd thinning out the farther we get from the stadium.

I tried for Opening Day at New Yankee Stadium bad news for California residents can't do it on www.yankees.com (http://www.yankees.com) Only New York Residents,Connecticut Residnets,New Jersey residents and Pennslyvania residents can go on www.yankees.com (http://www.yankees.com) to get yankees tickets for opening day at New Yankee Stadium.
