Fodor's Review

Opened in 2009, the Mets' newest stadium was designed to hark back to Ebbets Field (where the Dodgers played in Brooklyn until 1957) with a brick exterior and plenty of bells and whistles, from a batting cage and wiffle-ball field to the original giant apple taken from the team's old residence, Shea Stadium. Even those who aren't Mets fans but simply love baseball should come to see the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, a soaring multistory entrance and history exhibit dedicated to the Dodgers player who shattered baseball's color barrier. While here, don't miss tasting your way through the more-than-fabulous food court behind center field, where you'll find Shake Shack burgers, Blue Smoke ribs, a selection of close to 40 beers at the Big Apple Brews stand, and even lobster rolls and tacos. Though it seats fewer people than Shea by about 15,000, tickets are not hard to come by, especially later in the season. Still feeling nostalgic for the old Shea? Stop by the Mets Hall of Fame & Museum or pay your respects at the plaque in the parking lot.

Citi Field Review

Citifield is super easy to get to: take the 7 subway, the LIRR, bus, car, or even walk to the stadium through Flushing Meadow Park or from Main Street. Food and beer are pricey but there are all sorts of selections of both. Seats have cup holders, which is great. Unfortunately though, upper seats (the cheap seats) have limited sight lines. Lots of seats have cover though, so a shady seat is easy to get.
