Yankee Stadium is located in the Bronx, New York, near the historic park, Heritage Field. It is the newest home stadium for the New York Yankees of the American League, and is home to the New York City Football Club of Major League Soccer. It is a bit far away from the city's main attractions, but worth the trip for a Yankees game.

Pre-paid parking tickets can be purchased online through Quik Park Garages for both individual games and full- or partial-season passes. Parking is easy and guided to the various lots surrounding the stadium. For guaranteed spots, it's best to reserve a space online.
Hotels near Yankee Stadium
There are a couple of hotels close to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. However, if attending a game is part of a trip to New York, it's better to stay in a more central location. There are surprisingly affordable hotels in the Times Square area, which is crowded but steps away from most subway lines. Other famous hotels in the Midtown area include Waldorf-Astoria and W New York.
Seating at Yankee Stadium
The cheapest seats are in bleacher sections 201 and 239, however, parts of the outfield are obstructed if you are seated behind the batter's cage. Possibly the best seats with the most reasonable prices are the main sections from 213-227B. The Legends Suite section is the most expensive and most comfortable.
Food at Yankee Stadium
Many popular food vendors from New York have a stand at Yankee Stadium, from Boar's Head delis to Brother Jimmy's BBQ. Prices vary but they are generally more costly than what you'd find around the city. Cheap classic hot dogs are available as well.
Beer at Yankee Stadium
Beers of the World, serving domestic and select craft beers, is all over the stadium. Prices range from $5-12 depending on the beer and size. The Malibu Rum Terrace Deck in the upper deck across from section 310 has the best variety and is less crowded than the Beers of the World vendors.
Parking alternatives at Yankee Stadium
Riding the subway is always the best option when getting around NYC. Avoid traffic and road rage by taking the B, D or 4 trains to 161 St/Yankee Stadium station. Keep in mind that if you are leaving from as far as Brooklyn, you should give yourself at least an hour for the ride. From Manhattan it could be 30-45 minutes.
What to bring to Yankee Stadium
Soft bags are allowed inside the stadium. Surprisingly, you can also bring food into the stadium as long as it's stored in a clear plastic bag. Bottles and cans are not allowed. A sweater or small umbrella could also be helpful, especially if you are sitting in the upper level where it is uncovered from the weather.
