I would love to make it there someday if the Sox ever went to Queens for interleague baseball

It looked amazing this winter when getting off the 7 train. At least their ticket prices are realistic for true baseball fans, unlike the pinstripers. :rolleyes:

They also improved their food options with Blue Smoke, Shake Shack, and other leading restauranteurs. Then you can go into Flushing for dim sum or Korean BBQ.

:drool:

Looks nice. I always hold a special place in my White Sox heart for the Mets due to their upset in 1969. :D:

Now that they have a new ballpark, I would like to see them ditch the black-trimmed uniforms and get back to the traditional Mets look fromt the Tom Seaver era. I really like their home pinstripes with the Navy/Orange trim.

The place looks absolutely unreal.

Holy crap, it looks like they have 45 pricing sections, and 5 ranges. That makes my brain hurt.

But those prices do seem reasonable compared to the Yanks. I remember reading somewhere that there were 7 teams for which you could buy full season tickets for the price of two of the more expensive seats at NYS...for one game.

You are correct. As if we needed another reason to hate the Yankees, and then they had the gall to ask the city for another $400 million to finish the thing.

It seems nice, but I don't like the "pillbox" suites on the first level behind the plate, which will stick out like a sore thumb on TV. I don't see why they couldn't have put seats there and move the suites up a level. I guess the owner wanted a nicer view...

I also don't like that funky bridge structure in right-center, which surprisingly is not in the "architecture" video.

Aside from the seats right on the field, I'm not sure I see much difference between the Mets' prices and those for the Yanks (http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/nyy/ballpark/seating_pricing.jsp). In all honesty, I note "good" seats at either are well beyond what I'd pay to take my family. But that's just me . . .

I LOVE the homage to Ebbets field with the rotunda.

I agree, it looks pretty much like every other MLB stadium built in the last 10 years or so.
