Literally hundreds...

Do you have a particular category you would want to narrow it down to? Museums, music venues, parks, walking tours, shopping, etc?

Easy to access via transit, modern, safe.

Thanks guys! Really appreciate the help. Looks like I'll be starting in the 4-4 league there in June. Let me know if anyone here plays. Would be fun to get a crew together for some beers after the games.

$3000 is a little steep

I'm in lower Manhattan with no car, so some place that is accessible by Citi Bike or public transit would be awesome.

Thanks for any help you guys can throw my way!
I know there are games at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, which is only a few subway stops away from you if you're downtown.

Screw tourist attractions. Just take random journeys across Manhattan with money to spend. You'll likely have much more fun doing that.

Not really into guided tours, maybe museums, definitely parks and shopping. Anything sports related aswell.

I do believe you get 10% off the team store, but again, the stuff is so overpriced. Also, I am a very large human, so they rarely have stuff in my size anyway.

The best perk they gave was the 10% off play-off tickets, if you renewed early. Unfortunately, that lasted all of 1 season.

Things like skating sessions, discounts to Wolfpack games are offered.
10% is back this year!

I really like Kane One's suggestion to walk around an area you like and experience everything on foot.

Sports options will be somewhat limited at the time of year you intend to visit.

Also, the Mets play the dodgers when we're there. What are the games/stadium like?[/QUOTE]

Citifield is one of the nicest Stadiums in MLB. The Dodgers always draw decent when they come to NYC but with the Mets being down there will be plenty of good seats available. If you are staying in Manhattan the 7 train takes you right to Citifield.

Spend a few extra dollars and take the LIRR.

Generally fine if they are sturdy, but you will need to clean or wash your feet when you get indoors.

Nothing beats taking the 7 train back to NYC after a big Mets win !

There's the upper deck, then the one below is the promenade box deck. Under that is a suite level, under that is the excelsior/caesar's level deck, and under that is field level

Does it give you access to beer/food that you couldn't get via the upper deck?

upper deck uses the same concourse as the promenade box deck. I think you do get access to the promenade club which may have some extra offerings (for purchase)

I take the PATH. No point in paying the extra money unless you're short on time.

High end as in $30 cocktails (don't forget the tip)?

Plenty of those, you're all set

Thanks again

Hi there,

Mr. NYC honey moon here again. We know it's a long shot, but were going to try and get tickets for a taping of The Tonight Show while we are there. Does anyone know how long in advance those tickets are made available? I am expecting a five minute window once they are out, so I want to be prepared.
