I'll be there all weekend. I have tickets to Friday's game so far but will be picking up more I'm sure. We are staying in some suites on the East side of Manhattan.

I'll probably be at Friday's game.
Are there any pre-game gathering places? The other times I have gone to Yankee Stadium I haven't had a whole lot of time before or after the game to hang out, but this time I might...

Me and my wife will be there as well for Friday & Saturday. We are staying in Manhattan near Grand central station. Let me know if any of you are planning to get together at the stadium or elsewhere either day. :D:

I'll be going. I have not figured out how many or which games I'll be going to.
It would be great to see some WSI folks there. I feel isolated as a White Sox fan living in NY.

I went out to NY last year (the Contreras Revenge Game).
Its kind of like a Wrigley atmosphere around the park. you can pretty much just walk out of the park and into a bar.
There was one bar I went to I cant remember the name of it, it was pretty small with a pretty huge bouncer at the door. When you see the Mike Piazza bobblehead wearing makeup,you know youre in the right place.lol.
The Yankee fans were pretty much cool even though the Sox won.
A great experience Ill never forget.

I'd be up for meeting some fans somewhere before the game if possible. This is our first time going out to NY so I don't have any suggestions really. We are going to the Conan taping at 4:30 and plan on heading straight to the park or bar from there.

Hey all,

My Wife (As of Friday 07/14) and I will be going to the Sunday game at Yankee Stadium. Be interested to see how many Sox fans there are out there. How is the atmosphere to opposing teams fans there? We have bleacher seats in Left Field in Row E, how are these seats? I know the sections do not start with Row A, but how far back will we be? The seating chart seemed really confusing with all of the different ways the sections were numbered. Any help/information would be appreciated. I look forward to seeing some of my fellow Sox fans and can't wait for the second half.

the right-field bleachers are notoriously rough for opposing fans...but wait, yankee stadium doesn't have bleachers in left, only in right and center. do you guys have a box in left?

I had started another thread on this yesterday before seeing this one(moderator, please feel free to merge thread entitled "Any Sox fans attending Sat. game at NYY?" with this one).

I'll be at Saturday's game. Anyone else? Also, for the NY-based Sox fans, any good suggestions on a casual after-game restaurant with good food and atmosphere? Nothing dressy, of course, but no hole-in-the-wall, either.

Sorry, I meant to say Right Field. Of courseI would be in a section where the fans will be jerks. It is a nonalcoholic section though, so hopefully it won't be too bad. How far back is row E? Am I looking at decent seats? Thanks!

Incidentally, I'm somewhere in the upper deck on the third base side (for Friday night's game), so I hope to see some of you either before or during the game (and see my sig for how to find me!)...

EastCoastSoxFan

So did IOh, there's plenty to do in NYC, but most of it takes place in Manhattan rather than the Bronx. But all we need for a pre-game gathering is one half-decent restaurant/bar near Yankee Stadium...

2005gosoxgo
07-13-2006, 12:00 PM
Stan the Man's is a decent bar across the street, i am working in Manhattan and should make it up around 5:30. It would be fun as hell to walk into Stan's with a White Sox army inside knocking down some suds :)

Finally I get to walk into the house that Ruth built with a World Series Champion hat!!!

Oh, and Sox fans, get ready for the B.S. from the yanks fans " wow you won your 3rd, dont talk to me till you get 26" Yankees fans always seem to harp about the past to rub it in your face when their team is playing a little flat.

Hey all,

I live in NY and am going Friday night w/ my gf and 2 friends who came in from Chicago.

As has been said, the stadium has a Wrigley like environment in the sense there are a ton of places across the street. If you go to the main intersection, 161 and River ave, you'll see what I mean.

Stan's is a good suggestion, but I'd recommend Billy's (a few doors down, closer to 161 on River). It's a little bigger and more spread out. Also, there are two parts to it and you can get some decent grub in the restaurant side.
My favorite place is actually immediately next door to Billy's, on the right. They just have a sign that says like "Pizza, Food Burgers" and you can get food there. Then, if you go in the back of the place, there is a room w/ a TV and they have a bar. They sell 24 oz. cans for the price of a 12 oz beer at stan's or billy's... $7.50.
It's not a good meeting place for a big group, but a good place to throw a few back cheaper and get more value.

Also, if you're sitting in the bleachers, don't mouth off. People are cool, but if you show that you let stuff bother you, the bleacha creatchas will be all over you.
As the last poster said, they hold the trump card w/ the 26 titles thing.

I'm looking forward to the series. Go Sox

All right, seeing as this is the only bar name given, I may just seek out Stan the Man's.

and in response to those yankmee fans that brag about their trophies, just tell them that you support a team that doesn't pay you to like them

EDIT: Billy's or Stan the Man's? Well, we'll all be in black and white pinstripes, should stand out against the navy blue pinstripes...

07-13-2006, 12:18 PM
Just an FYI...

Billy's and Stan the man's are on the same block, so you could easily hop around if one looks better than the other.

Also, Make sure you take the D train and not the B train uptown if you're commuting from Manhattan.
The B train will get you there, but about a half hour slower since it's a local.

If you're on the east side, take the 4 train uptown.

Funny, those "ruffians" didn't have too much to say back then!

nysox35
07-13-2006, 12:26 PM
lol..yeah, 93 I bet they didn't.

If you're in Section 37-43 bleachers, one thing they do is pick out a fan of the other team (usually only if you're annoying) and point at you and sing along to YMCA (they play it when the field crew comes out in the 5th inning).

Only they sing, "Why are you..." Think of what ozzie said about Mariotti...
It used to be crazier there though when they served beer still.

So you would take the D train then from Grand Central Station?

No, Grand Central is on the East side.
You'd take the 4 train up to Yankee Stadium (161st Street)
The 4 is also an express train.

2005gosoxgo and nysox35, thanks for the tips.
I'll probably hit Stan the Man's and Billy's (just as several of us hit Hi-Tops and Firewater's in the 'Burgh) before the game on Friday.
Hope to see you there...

the D train is a 6th avenue express and turns up Central Park West , the 4 train is a lexington avenue express , both stop at the stadium. For those Sox fans whodo have bleecher seats, i recocmend trading them in for a regular seat, I've been going to sox-yanks games since 1991 and they will get real nasty with you just for having a Sox jersey on , and they have no mercy if you are bringing children along, I highly do not reccomend the bleechers. They will rip of hats, and you will not see them again, and I am not exaggerating. I'm a member of the NYPD, so please heed my advice, and have a fun and safe time at the Stadium:) I hope meeting you there.

I will be at stan the man's around 5:00PM in a road McDowell jersey.

P.S. -- If you get in the Stadium early, you are allowed to walk to the back of the bull pen and see the old monuments that were once on the playing field as well as the retired numbers, it truly is a treat for all fans of the game.

I also suggest trading your upper deck tix for somethin else in the lower level. That is the most dangerous upper deck ive been in. And if you keep them dont drink.

You take the Path into Penn Station from there you can pick up the 4 or the 6. I think you can pick up the D too but i am not sure. If you cant all the trains are in time square not that far away.

Wow, that's nuts. I chose not to get bleachers because you couldn't drink back there. I ended up getting upper deck, but from what I heard that might not be much better.

I ended up getting upper deck, but from what I heard that might not be much better.I've been in various locations in the upper deck all three times in Yankee Stadium, and I've never had a problem with any fans up there.
But then again, I'm not the sort to get into it with opposing (home) fans other than a little friendly ribbing with people who are clearly NOT under the influence of alcohol...

If you take the Path to 33rd Street (1 block east of Penn Station), you can switch to the D without exiting the station. To get to the 4 or 6 would require a 4 or 5 block eastbound walk.

I don't think the bleachers are bad seats, but the main disadvantages are that the bleachers are cut off from the rest of the stadium (can't access monument park) and that they are alcohol free (for me this is a negative).
As stated, not a place to bring kids.

However, I think it's rather tame out there these days if it's not a Mets or Boston game and provided you don't go looking for trouble.

Also, the Upper Deck does have some shennanigans, but so does the cell or any other stadium. Basically, if you don't go looking for trouble, it shouldn't find you.

That being said, if you can upgrade, why not, right?
Have fun everyone.
