Where Is Yankee Stadium Located?

Yankee Stadium is located in the Bronx borough of New York City at One East 161st Street. This state-of-the-art sports arena proudly stands one block away from the site of its predecessor, the legendary old Yankee Stadium, which was constructed in 1923 and served as the home field of some of baseball’s most famous players. The new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009, is a sight to behold with its modern architecture and stunning views of the Manhattan skyline.

The stadium is conveniently located near several metro stations and bus stops, so visitors can choose the transportation option that best suits their schedule. By subway, take either the B or D train to the 161st Street — Yankee Stadium station; from there, it’s a short walk to the ballpark. Bus routes are also available, which include the Bx1, Bx2, Bx6, Bx13 and BxM4. Additionally, there is parking near the stadium if you're driving to the game.

Choosing Seats at Yankee Stadium

When attending a game at Yankee Stadium, there's a wide selection of seats to choose from. Consider sitting in sections 112-114 or 126-128 for some of the best seats in the house. There are also several special seating options, including Field MVP Boxes (which are behind home plate) and Bleacher Seats (which are in the outfield). The Field MVP Boxes are perfect for those looking for a more exclusive experience, while the Bleacher Seats offer unbeatable prices and a lively atmosphere. The Grandstand upper level is another budget-friendly option. (Psst ... did you know you find great deals and savings on New York Yankees tickets through Undercover Tourist?)
