Trip Report Yankee Stadium trip (4/30)

Jump to last reply

Drove to Milford to take Metro North to the Yankees game on Saturday. Its about an hour drive for me / 40 minutes from Hartford. 1 good thing is that if you can get a spot in the commuter lot on weekends, its free parking. Got a spot right next to the station. 1 other note is that there is parking on either side of the station. You have to walk completely around the station to the opposing side on the return. There is no walkway above the tracks.

Waited about 20 minutes and the train came. Took it to Harlem / 125th st to transfer to a Poughkeepsie train to Yankee Stadium. However, since I was outside of the window of the game, the train did not stop at Yankee Stadium (completely catching me off-guard). Got off the North-Bound train at Maple Hill and got a south bound train that also did not stop at Yankee Stadium. Back to 125th St I went. At this point, I walked over to the subway and took it to the Stadium. Thankfully, I was extremely early and had time to kill so not a big deal. Just wish I had realized that earlier...

At this point, my friend called me as he was coming in from Manhattan (had to work in the morning) and he was just leaving to go to the subway so I walked around the stadium for a little while. Met him back at Stan's for a few beers.

At about 1:15, we went to Gate 6 and got in the line so we could get into Monument Park. However, once the gates opened, we learned of a new policy where you cannot bring tablets (IPads, Nooks (which we each had), etc) into the stadium. They explained that it was due to someone uploading pictures onto Facebook during the game so they banned all tablets. This was somewhat understandable but you can do the same thing with cameras and cell phones. We had to walk back to a parking garage off of 161st St to rent a locker for $10. My biggest issue with it was that there are no signs near the gates that explain this. We had just stood at the gate for 45 minutes (ample time to have taken care of this). By the time we got back to the gate, the lines for Monument Park were too long so we just went in.

More to come...
