About Attending a Yankees Game or Mets Game:
New Yorkers love their baseball. Both Yankees and Mets fans take their teams very seriously, so enjoying this NY Thing to Do is a great way to mingle the locals while enjoying the game. Both Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, which is home of the Mets, are located a short distance from our NYC Hotel, and you can opt to drive or take public transportation to either of these stadiums.

The Teams
The Yankees have appeared in 40 World Series and have won an impressive 27. The Mets have only won 2 World Series, but their fans always believe this will the year they win a third. While the Mets may not have had the same level of success as the Yankees, they are still a formidable team that holds 4 National League Pennants and 5 National League East titles.     

Tickets for this NYC Activity can be purchased at the box office or through TicketMaster. If attending a game is important to you then you should definitely reserve your tickets in advance. While it is often possible to buy tickets just before or on game day, many games will sell out.

Ticket prices start at about $25 for bleacher seats and go up from there. Premium seating can cost $500 and up. For example, tickets for the Legends Suite are $1,356. While it’s easy to spend a fortune to watch a game, it is not necessary to do so. You can enjoy a game with a $40 seat just as much as with a $400 seat.

The Food
For many fans, the food at the ballpark is as much a highlight of the game as the game itself. Both Yankee Stadium and Citi Field have lots of fabulous food options, so you never have to go hungry while enjoying this NY Thing to Do.

You’ll find much more than just hot dogs at both of these stadiums. Craving a good steak? Try LaFrieda’s Steak at Citi Field or NYY Steak at Yankee Stadium. You’ll find great Italian options at Mama’s of Corona at Citi Field or Parm at Yankee Stadium. If you do want a hot dog, Nathan’s is available at both parks.
