  • The best place in Bronx: Yankee Stadium Tours

    Yankee Stadium Tours

    880 River Ave
    Home of the New York Yankees baseball team [6]. The old Yankee Stadium, "The House That Ruth Built", is no longer in use, and is now replaced by the new Yankee Stadium next door. The Stadium has strict security policies, and as such backpacks and camcorders are not allowed inside (only bags under 14" permitted). Monument Park pays homage to the great, Yankee legends of baseball, and is located behind center field. Monument park officially closes 45 minutes before game time, but is oftentimes closed sooner if the crowds are large enough. If visiting Monument park is a priority, best bet is to arrive close to when the gates open. It is served by the B, D & 4 at 161st Street-Yankee Stadium and the Metro-North Station at 153rd Street-Yankee Stadium. You can also take a stadium tour for $20.
