Baseball in New York City, New York City, New York
Concierge.com's insider take:
What rite of passage is as loaded with emotion, pride, and nostalgia as a summer day out at the baseball stadium? Both of the city's Major League teamsthe Yankees and the Metsboth recently got new stadiums: The Mets' longtime home ground, Shea Stadium in Flushing, Queens, hosted its last game in late 2008, and was replaced by the Citi Field, a new stadium constructed in Shea's old parking lot. The Bronx-based Yankees swapped one Yankee Stadium for another in 2009. The rivalry between the two New York teams could be charitably described as fierce, but let's just say that between them they've produced some of the country's greatest sporting heroes: Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and Willie Mays, to name a few. Even if you're not a sports fan, this is a classic New York experience and the perfect way to soak up some sunshine over hot dogs and beers (though the concessions aren't easy on the wallet). Purchase tickets in advance via the Major League Baseball sitewww.mlb.comor turn up at the stadium two and a half hours early on game day.
