Yankee Stadium Review
Fans are still nostalgic about the original, legendary Yankee Stadium, which saw its last season in 2008. The new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium, however (right across the street from the House that Ruth Built) got off to a good start, with the Yankees winning the World Series in its inaugural year. Tickets can be pricey, but the experience is like watching baseball in a modern-day coliseum. It's incredibly opulent and over-the-top: traditional white frieze adorns the stadium's top; inside, limestone-and-marble hallways are lined with photos of past Yankee greats; lower-level seats have cushions, cup holders, and a boffo meatery, NYY Steak. Like the team, all the amenities don't come cheap. But the spirit of the original still remains. History buffs and hardcore fans should visit Monument Park (closes 45 minutes prior to first pitch), with plaques of past Yankee legends, by center field—it survived from its original left field location at the old stadium. Aside from the subway, you can also get here by taking Metro-North to the Yankees–E. 153rd Street Station.
