Fodor's Review

See the "Bronx Bombers" in action at their 2009-debuted, $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium (set right across the street from the site of the original stadium, aka "the House that Ruth Built"), which 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 quite opulent: a 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 easy access to a boffo "meatery," NYY Steak. History buffs and hard-core fans should visit the Yankees Museum (set on the main level and open till the end of the eighth inning), filled with historical team memorabilia, and Monument Park (closes 45 minutes prior to first pitch), with plaques of past Yankee legends, by center field. Pregame and off-season one-hour stadium tours are held on a near-daily basis year-round; visit the Yankees website for more info on times and ticketing.
