Getting to Yankee Stadium

    Since folks are in a helpful mood tonight it seems, here's one for you:

    I've, somehow, never made it to Yankee Stadium. Wife loves the Yankees and wants to get back there before they move to the new digs. And I want to finally get there myself, as well. I think the reason I've never been is because I grew up believing that going there was a risk-your-life proposition.

    So, what's the best way to get there for a game and not end up a chalk outline?

    Driving's a bastard and parking's expensive.

    If you're going to take the subway, the B, D and 4 trains all stop at the Stadium (161st Street and River Ave).

    Also, there's a Waterway Ferry that stops off at the Stadium.

    I'd take the subway, it was good to me when I went to Shea a few years ago, and on a subsequent trip.

    Take the subway..the Waterways Ferry is also quite expensive.

    Depending on where your coming from, the 4 or the D are the best bets and there's no way you're going to end up as a chalk outline
    (unless you wear a Red Sox jersey in the bleachers)

    Subway is your best bet, but if you're feeling adventrous you can always take the FDR/Harlem River Drive, maneuver some one way streets and take the 145th St. Bridge into the Bronx to come in from the other side of the Stadium. That is if you don't mind driving through Harlem.

    Take the subway, but make sure you don't get on a rush hour express train, which will zip by the stadium stop quite rapidly.

    I took the subway the one time I went and the people were very nice. They all seemed very interested that we were from Seattle and were very helpful. I was mildly shocked based on the horror stories I had heard about New York subways.

    Two words -- don't drive.

    The train is fine, if a little crowded. Safety is not an issue as long as you get off at the right stop and staying within sight of the Stadium.

    a) Take D train.

    b) Disembark.

    c) Follow lemmings.

    I guess I followed Ben_Hecht's instructions on my trips to NYC, including one to Yankee Stadium. I was heading to/from sporting events and to/from Grand Central, so I felt safe in the big crowds on the train. Only once I hopped off at the wrong stop for a transfer. That was a long five minutes on a deserted platform.
