  • Yankee Stadium Parking

    For anybody that's been to YS this year... is parking terrible?

    I'm going to the Mets-Yankees game on Friday, and one of my friends told me that if I leave from LI/Queens around 5:00, that there's no chance I'll get parking. Is that the case?

    The past few years when I've gone, I've parked in the garage across from the new stadium. Where should I head if I can't find parking there on Friday?

    I haven't been to a game yet this year, but I don't think it's gonna be much of a pain in the ass as Shea is. I can see it being much harder getting a spot at Shea than at Yankee Stadium. I think certian lots are gonna be open during certian months.

      not only is the parking situation normally bad but this year is even worse and the mets-yankees series is always the absolute worst when it comes to parking and such.

        and Yanks-Red Sox, even though I think most people who come from Mass. take buses.

          yeah exactly. its new york fans for both teams coming from the new york area so way more people will be driving than usual.

            I've been told the Yankee Stadium garages open four hours before the game starts. I don't drive, so that's the best I can help.

            I don't know if you're in a position to do this, or even if you'd consider it, but the only thing I can suggest is leave work early so that you can get there when the parking garages open. (You can always spend the extra time walking around the neighborhood and take pictures of the ballparks' exteriors...)

              I don't know if I will be at Yankee Stadium this season or not this season.

                You can save the money, the hassle of traffic, and the chances of finding your car on blocks....

                take the subway.

                  I think that's more of a hassle than it's worth, coming from LI. Taking the LIRR into Penn, walking over to Grand Central, and then taking the subway up to YS is a big schlep.

                  Earliest I can leave is 4:30. But don't worry, I'm going Sunday too, so I'll definitely have pictures at some point this weekend.

                    I come in from NJ into Penn and take to A/C to 125th and the B/D to 161. No need to go to Grand Central.

                    My sister went to a game last Sunday, got to the Stadium around 11:30 and was able to park in the River Ave garage.

                      Hmm. Maybe I'll do that on Friday. How would you say it takes to get from Penn to YS?

                        That's a little difficult, only because - as I'm sure you know - the A and C are on different platforms. Unless you can run up and down stairs really, really fast, it must be frustrating to be waiting on the express platform for the A only to have the C show up on the local.

                        I'd think it would be more advantageous to wait on the local platform and take whichever comes first, the C or the E. If you get the E you can change at 7th Avenue for a B or D.

                          So yesterday I did end up taking the subway. Took an A (or C?) from Penn to Columbus Circle, and then transfered to the D to Yankee Stadium.

                          It was okay, but I'd rather drive if I'm able to leave early enough, since with no traffic, it should only take me about a half hour to get to Yankee Stadium, while my trip on the LIRR and the subway took me about an hour and a half.

                            Actually, some stations, the A and the C stop on the same platform. Like at Broadway/Nassau/Fulton Street. I take the A home from there all the time, and every once in a while, the C stops on the platform.

                              south of canal street and all the way to hoyt-schermerhorn street in brooklyn the line goes from 4 tracks to 2 so the express and local have to merge onto one track. after canal street going northbound the trains go onto seperate tracks and the A is express and the C (and E) are local.
                              the A and C ALWAYS stop at every station between canal and hoyt (chambers, broadway-nassau, high st and jay street).
