After the zoo, we headed over to 1 E 161st St in the Bronx, also known as Yankee Stadium, to catch a game. This is the new stadium, which opened in 2009. The old stadium is long gone and now a park and parking garage complex. This year is also the farewell tour of Derek Jeter, so we got to see a few ceremonies and get a gateway give away of a very cheap and crappy statue (PC Richards should stick to electronics). They ended up losing, but the fun is always had going to the games and relaxing with people you know. Both of the people with me had never been to the new stadium so that was fun for them. We sat up on the Terrace Level, which is a hike up and down, but less steep to sit in than the Grandstand (I always feel like I’m going to fall off the Grandstand when I stand up).
Next week: A short look in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
