The New Yankee Stadium located in the New York City borough of the Bronx is not only home to one of the most famous and successful franchises in major league sports history, it is also and one of the most state-of-the-art sports facilities in the world, providing fans with the most technologically advanced game-day experience in baseball, while maximizing the great historical tradition of the Yankees organization. The easiest way to get there is by train. The Yankee Stadium Subway stop is located right by the Stadium at the corner of 161st St. and River Ave. The Stadium is conveniently reached by several subway lines and a trip from midtown Manhattan takes less than 25 minutes. The #4 train, as well as the B (weekdays only) and D trains make stops at 161st St./Yankee Stadium. Metro-North train service to/from Connecticut and Westchester County is available at the 125th Street subway stop. The design of the stadium by HOK Sport of Kansas City presents a stadium perimeter that resembles the pre-renovation exterior of the original Yankee stadium, but there are several notable differences to its interior ballpark.

The New Yankee Stadium located in the New York City borough of the Bronx is not only home to one of the most famous and successful franchises in major league sports history, it is also and one of the most state-of-the-art sports facilities in the world, providing fans with the most technologically advanced game-day experience in baseball, while maximizing the great historical tradition of the Yankees organization.

The easiest way to get there is by train. The Yankee Stadium Subway stop is located right by the Stadium at the corner of 161st St. and River Ave. The Stadium is conveniently reached by several subway lines and a trip from midtown Manhattan takes less than 25 minutes. The #4 train, as well as the B (weekdays only) and D trains make stops at 161st St./Yankee Stadium. Metro-North train service to/from Connecticut and Westchester County is available at the 125th Street subway stop.

The design of the stadium by HOK Sport of Kansas City presents a stadium perimeter that resembles the pre-renovation exterior of the original Yankee stadium, but there are several notable differences to its interior ballpark. The new stadium seats 51,000 fans, with a standing room only capacity of 53,000, compared to the 57,000 plus in the older stadium. The new stadium has also been designed in the shape of a bowl instead of the stacked tier structure in old Yankee Stadium, putting fans farther back but lower to the field. Another big difference between the two stadiums, along with the move from the tiered structure to the bowl design, is the substantial increase in the new stadium's retail space, located in a 1,000,000 square foot "Great Hall" between the stadium perimeter and stadium itself.

The number of bleacher seats has been cut in half, but 2,000 standing room spots have been created. The new stadium houses 60 luxury boxes between the second level and upper deck, raising the number of them by nearly a factor of four over the previous 16 boxes the old stadium offered. In addition each level of seating at the new stadium contains a "premium seating" section. These sections contain cushioned seats, cup holders, and access to private bars/clubs and restrooms. The new design thus offers substantially more opportunities to stand and watch a game, (presumably at the cheapest ticket rates) while at the same time quadrupling the luxury seating capacity for the most expensive tickets in the stadium.

Building on its legacy of innovation, the New York Yankees partnered with Cisco Systems to integrate video, voice, data and wireless services into one seamless next-generation network that connects fans to the team in entirely new ways. Fans can view sports news and scores, weather and traffic while never missing a moment of game action on the field. Live game broadcast on HD video monitors displayed throughout the stadium, including concession areas, the Great Hall, the Yankees Museum and other in-stadium restaurant and bar locations also ensures that fans can see the game no matter where they are inside the stadium complex.

The $1.3 billion cost for the New Yankee Stadium was funded by $450 million paid equally by both the Yankees organization and New York City taxpayers, with the remainder of the bill being covered by money from diverted revenue sharing payments that would have been paid to other MLB baseball teams. The $1.3 billion price tag for the New Yankee stadium makes it second most expensive stadium ever built in the world.

Dining gets a serious upgrade at the new stadium: The dozens of concessionaires include Johnny Rockets, Hard Rock Café, Lobel’s, Moe's Southwest Grill, Asian Noodle Bowl, a sushi station run by Soy Kitchen, Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, Boar’s Head Deli, and the NYY steakhouse. Not to mention lots of places to get your Nathan’s and Hebrew National hot dogs!
