Fodor's Review

Fans are still nostalgic for 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: 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 accessto a boffo meatery, NYY Steak. Like the team, amenities don't come cheap. History buffs and hardcore fans should visit the Yankees Museum and 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.
