The Bombers’ current field opened in 2009 to much fanfare and stands opposite the now-flattened original. It may not be the House That Ruth Built, but many elements of the new arena—the limestone exterior, the gatelike frieze around the top—mimic the old, while cup holders at every seat and a high-def scoreboard are noticeable improvements. A museum behind right field aims to hold signed baseballs from every living Yankees player, but the most potent relic wasn’t allowed to stay on site—in 2008 the construction staff jackhammered out a Red Sox jersey a rival fan tried to install in the structure’s foundation.

You can't come to NYC during baseball season and not see the Yankees play! Located in the Bronx (an easy commute from Manhattan on the B, D or 4 trains), Yankee Stadium has so much history to it, as well as a fun environment to watch the Yankees play. It was recently redone a few years ago and got a major face lift. Tickets are very expensive - but you can get nosebleed seats at a cheaper price. Expect to spend a lot of money on food and beer; stadium food is always expensive!
