1 E 161 St, The Bronx, New York City, New York, 10451
Yankee Stadium’s interior and exterior mimic the design of the original site. With seating for more than 50,000, the ballpark also serves as a venue for concerts and Major League Soccer matches. The grandstand consists of four levels, including dozens of luxury suites and a split-level upper deck—and you’ll find bleacher seats beyond the outfield. Tours of Yankee Stadium run regularly during baseball season and on a modified schedule off-season.

Smooth ride although windy day. Great pilot. Most calming thing to do when spending time in such a crowded city.

Hands On History
For an up-close encounter with Yankees history, check out Yankee Stadium’s Hands On History exhibit. You’ll get to touch artifacts such as World Series rings, and bats, jerseys, and baseballs used by past and present baseball legends. Led by the Yankees’ museum curator, the program takes place in the New York Yankees Museum inside the stadium. Book in advance, as tours often sell out months ahead of schedule.
