    A subway from Times Square to Yankee Stadium would take how long?

    Depends on how much time you spend in the emergency room.

    No, really....probably a half hour depending on time of day.

    Not the most convenient starting point. But you'll take the 7 train toward Queens (or the S shuttle) and get off at Lexington Ave / Grand Central Station (42nd and Lex). At that stop you switch to the uptown 4 train to 161st Street. It's a quick ride from there. With the walking and the changing trains, Smasher is right, you are looking at anywhere from 20 minutes to a half hour.

    I just banged my coffee mug into my teeth because I laughed so hard when I read that. I guess I shouldn't drink while I"m reading.

    It's actually easy to do.
    On the way back, try to get express to Grand Central.

    Good answers so far, especially the emergency room one...however, you can do this trip without changing trains from Times Square. Take the D (which is technically at 6th Ave., but can probably be accessed via a tunnel at Times Square) all the way to Yankee Stadium. Time-wise, it's the same. But you won't accidentally take the 7 into Queens.

    It's fine to take the D train, but you have to walk to Bryant Park to get the D train. You can't get it from Times Square, which is where he said he was starting from. So you have to walk over to 6th Ave. Between the walk to get to the subway and the extra time the D takes, I still think it is going to be quicker to hop on the 7 train and switch at Grand Central. But not significantly so, probably.

    Forgive me if I list these in the wrong order, but I'll be around 48th and 8th, if that helps.
