RECOMMENDED: 50 best New York attractions
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.

A summer must-do! There's really not a bad seat in the house and the stadium is a quick trip from Manhattan.
If you're visiting NYC during the summer attending a Yankee's game is a must. The stadium is beautiful so even if you can't get in for a game, go to check out the stadium.
Make sure you check online for what you can and can not bring into the stadium. They do NOT have lockers on site at the stadium. However, there are a few locations at team stores and garages near by that you pay $10 to store your stuff. The team store seems the most legitimate spot to store your stuff but it fills up quickly so get there early. My friend had to store her bag in the parking garage lockers which were pretty sketchy. They were gym lockers/waterpark lockers in a parking garage. Not ideal, but worked.
As you'll find with most sporting arenas they are not the most gluten free friendly. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see Redbridge behind the counter. They don't serve them at all beer counters but you can find them at the specialty drinks and cocktails bars.
Yankee Stadium is the best place to be in the Bronx! Always recommend taking the subway here if you can because parking garages nearby are expensive and traffic is pretty intense. Plus if you want to enjoy a few brews at the game you won't have to worry about driving home. This stadium has everything you want and more. Tons of great restaurants, bars and activities inside the stadium... and obviously the baseball is a plus! Always a great time with friends & family!
