AAA Editor Notes
Yankee Stadium is at One E. 161st St. While the 1923 park Babe Ruth and fellow Baseball Hall of Famers Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle knew was demolished in 2010, features of the Yanks' former digs can be seen in the design of its successor. Imposing arched windows still greet fans entering the new-and-improved coliseum, and seats are laid out much as they were prior to the Bronx Bombers' move from one side of East 161st Street to the other. Plus, a few old-school elements have been reinstated, from a replica of the distinctive copper frieze that once lined the upper deck (it was ripped out during the original stadium's 1974-75 renovation) to manually operated scoreboards in left and right field.
Guided tours of the stadium begin and end at Gate 6 (at 161st Street and River Avenue) and include the dugout, along with Monument Park and the New York Yankees Museum (sites subject to availability), both of which honor some of the franchise's past players, managers and owners.
Tickets for the stadium tour may be purchased at any New York City Yankees Clubhouse Shop, at the Yankee Stadium ticket office or over the phone through TicketMaster. For security reasons, visitors must arrive at least 20 minutes prior to their scheduled tour time.
Guided tours are available.
