    I found a Hilton brand hotel a few blocks from Times Square for $160/night. I reserved that a month ago and went and checked again. It's already up to $250.

    Not really unless you plan to just sleep there and return late at night. If you're going back and forth, you'll lose an hour each way, each time you make the round trip.

    for $50 a night, stay in SI. The ferry is free, the ride is sensational and, as Ragu said, you can get anywhere by subway from the Ferry terminal in Manhattan

    I went to two Yanks-Sox games in the Bronx with a group the year after they won the World Series, adorned with Sox hat and shirt. People tried giving me and my friends shit, but all you had to say was "Worst Choke Ever" or something similar and they didn't say a thing back. Yankees fans talk a good game, but they didn't have much of a retort to that one.

    Wear whatever you feel like... but I must say, from what I've heard, I wouldn't go into the bleachers wearing it.

    Actually, the bleachers would be the safest spot to wear it since they don't serve alcohol out there. That's also why, in addition to being a mile away from home plate, the bleachers suck.

    I've sat in just about every section there, including behind home plate, and there really aren't any bad seats. Try to avoid the foul poles, but other than that, you should be OK.

    Oh, and Monument Park is well worth it. If it's the only time you're ever going to go there, make sure to get there early enough to check it out. From the history of the NY logo, to the players' plaques to the new 9-11 memorial, it's really interesting. I went into it for the first time in about 10 years last summer and got goosebumps all over again.

    Yankee fans just talk. It's the Oakland Raider fans that actually stab fools.

    The only time I went, I sat on the third base line and had pretty good views. I would like to sit on the first base line sometime just because I have seen so many camera angles from that side over the years.
    What is the worst part of the bleachers? I have always wanted to sit in right field.

    I think outfield seating sucks anywhere. You can't see the game.

    If you do a day in the bleachers, the right centerfield bleachers is leaps and bounds better than left centerfield.

    And may I echo those who said the best seats in the house are in the upper deck above home plate. Once had seats front and center. Probably the best view I ever had at any sporting event.

    Right field isn't awful, but I wouldn't pay to sit there either. You can see the whole game, but it looks like a rumor. And if someone homers to right field, Trot Nixon or Juan Encarnacion or whomever is chasing the ball just disappears.

    If you have the time, the stadium tour is worth an extra subway ride out to the South Bronx. I'm no Yankee fan, but standing on the top step of the Yankees' dugout and gaze out onto the field was worth the trip by itself. After that they walk you around the warning track to Monument Park and give you plenty of time to read a few plaques or take a few pictures, and with far fewer people around than before a game.
    The tour was something like $10-12 when I was there in 2000, probably at least $15 now. When the Yankees are home, they do it on weekdays (if there's not a day game) up until 12:00 or so. They also take you to the press box (gee, never seen one of those before) and a couple other places. If the team is out of town, I think you get to see the clubhouse, too, but I'm not sure.

    For that view, yeah, it would be worth a second trip. Guess I should have realized they did tours there, too.
