It really doesn't. Especially from the outside. It has a ton of unique architectural designs.

No it doesnt.

Yankee Stadium, to me, is very generic, symettrical, and boring.

CitiField's biggest design inspiration was Ebbets field.

I recently went on a tour of Citi Field and I can say it is AMAZING. All of you who are skeptical about it, wait till you see it. You'll love it. Seats are wide/spacious/plenty of legroom. The upper deck is like the 400's of the Garden (which is amazing for a baseball field) and the clubs look fantastic. The entrance in the front is cool too, 4 giant escaltors in a large open air lobby, with 2 team stores and a resturant. The left and right field gates have large baseball silliouttes of past Mets moments (such as Endy's leaping catch in the NLCS) and the outside brickwork is fantasic.

Basically all I'm saying is get to Citi Field!!

Some pictures:

NYRangers88, where in the promenade did you take that picture? I have a weekend plan at Citi Field and I think that's exactly where my seats are. I have section 515 row 13 or 14 I believe.

EDIT- Btw, how does the area around Shea look like now? Did they clear out all the debris? I haven't been there since January, it's definitely going to be weird taking the 7 train and not seeing the big old blue ballpark anymore.

The Yankees got some balls asking for another hand out when the city is slashing services,talking about raising the transit fares,talking about laying off thousands of employees and canceling classes at the police academy.

Yeah, fewer cops on the street so the Yankee owners can make a few more bucks?

Makes perfect sense to me.
Disgusting. How do you New Yorkers put up with this? How can you let a stupid sports team take your millions when your schools and other social services suffer??

Those pictures are outstanding and I'm not even a Mets fan. That Pepsi sign might be the coolest advertisement in any ballpark right now.

Not all of the pictures are mine, but that one was from Row 17 (last row of the upper deck) in Section 516.

And Shea is almost all paved over with parking lot.

I like Yankee stadium more, but I have to give the Mets organization a boat load of credit in designing that park, It looks amazing, very baseball-esque. The only thing I don't approve of for Citi Field is the name corporate sponsorship of parks is just... wrong, especially baseball of all sports.

Coming from another Yankees fan, Citifield looks absolutely amazing.

I can't wait until baseball starts again.

Agreed. I've got tickets in left field for a day game against the brewers in April. Can't wait to see this park in person. A nice park for a baseball game adds way more to the experience than a nice arena for a hockey game in my opinion. Don't know why I feel that way... anyone else feel like that?

the real question is, which stadium will have better sushi. Please let me know who wins the sushi wars.

Personally, I wouldn't ever step into either stadium if it wasn't for the fact that I would want to take my son there (unless someone else is paying). I just cannot justify the expense. Pretty much like my take on movies - I pay $200+ per month for cable; I'll wait for it to come to my living room.

What a stupid post.

You have a bad habit of offering your ignorant opinions whenever there's a discussion of a NY team. Concentrate your hatred a little more because your stretching yourself thin. To the point where you look like a foolish troll reaching for reason's to dislike us. It's disgusting, and very juvenile of you.

___________

As a Mets fan, I actually like Yankee Stadium a little more. Although I will admit, some of the design schemes in Citi-Field looks spectacular.

Both stadiums should fulfill expectations.

My cousin was in the New Yankee stadium today, he works for the Hard Rock Cafe(there's one in the new stadium), says its looks great, much better in person.

Wouldn't it be smarter to wait until you have actually seen a game in both parks? I just bought some Mets tix from a season ticket holder. Will get 1 or 2 yankee games from my friend who works for them. Once I have seen both parks and soaked it all in, I will vote.

For the record, I could care less about the ridiculous restaurants and non-traditional concessions. Not going to a baseball game to eat sushi or mahi-mahi.

Section 512 Row 2...virtually behind home plate.


I paid $799 for 3 tickets to 12 Wednesday games.


Split between two buddies it's like $266 a piece and $22 a ticket per game.


Not bad if you ask me. Perfect view.

HUGE Mets fan here.. dont know too much about the New Yank Stadium but I love what Im seeing of Citi Field so far..

Anyone going to the 2nd game of the year vs SD? Ill be in the Pepsi Porch out in RF .. i wish i could've gotten tix to opening day but they let season ticket holders/some special ticket event get the chance to go to opening day, which was disappointing.

Cant wait to go.. and I think they made it smaller to get more sellouts.. Mets' attendance has been in the top 3 the past 3-4 years now but they weren't getting 56k per night (more like 50-52k, lol which is still alot).. IIRC Citi Field holds 46k? or something like that in the 40k's (49k maybe?).. anyway i expect it to be sold out a ton
