Yankee Stadium
Vacation Travel Guide

Baseball’s most famous franchise has a new, somewhat luxurious home in the central Bronx, full of homages to the team’s long history.

Yankee Stadium has been one of New York City’s iconic destinations for almost a hundred years, ever since the original was built in 1923. The team’s new home, constructed at a cost of $2.3 billion, is the most expensive stadium ever built, but manages to include both deluxe amenities and many references to the Yankees’ long history. Enjoy a typical New York experience by hopping on the subway northward, ready to spend an afternoon watching America’s pastime.

Join fans wearing iconic blue-and-white baseball caps streaming from the subway to the stadium. Before entering, take a detour to Babe Ruth Plaza, which pays homage to the Yankees’ most famous player. Also in the open air, see all of the Yankees’ retired uniform numbers as well as a series of celebratory plaques in Monument Park. More team history is on display at the New York Yankees Museum, with a “Ball Wall” displaying the signatures of hundreds of past and present players.

For more history and trivia, join a daily tour to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the team operates. Notice the homages to the 1923 stadium everywhere, including gilt lettering outside and the frieze that is now replicated on the roof of the upper deck stands.

As the game starts, head to one of the more than 50,000 seats or watch the bats crack from the patios overlooking the field.

Yankee Stadium is located in the Bronx in the heart of the Concourse district. A subway station bearing the stadium’s name is a 3-minute walk away, providing easy connections throughout the city 24 hours a day. Take the subway from Midtown Manhattan in about 25 minutes or drive in 35 minutes. Use the parking garages in the vicinity, although they may be both expensive and full during game times.

Access to the stadium is available only to ticket-holders for a game or tour. Tours run daily every 20 minutes from mid-day to early afternoon. Gates open more than an hour before games start. Check online for guidelines on what you’re allowed to bring into the stadium.

"Apparently the hotel is used as a homeless shelter. There were kids running on the lobby. The elevator and hallway were dirty and I was called multiple times to confirm my stay, which was paid for prior to my arrival."
