However if you are rich it will be FREE

Game-day parking prices for the general public will more than double from $14 last year to $29 in 2010. They could hit $35 by 2014.

The Yankees and hundreds of their VIPs will get free valet parking for the next 40 years, courtesy of New York taxpayers.

Taxpayers will fund Yankees' VIP parking, NYC gets less money (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/2008/01/02/2008-01-02_taxpayers_will_fund_yankees_vip_parking_.html)

Also, a huge ticket price increase for some by yanks for 2008.
From Newsday:
the best Field Championship seats that last year cost $125, $135 or $150 per game (on a season plan) have risen to $250. So for some, that's a 100 percent increase.

The Main Championship Box went from $85 in 2007 to $120. That's 41 percent.

Even in a more modest section, Tier Reserved, the best seats rose from $17 to $25, up 47 percent.

Many other tickets went up less, such as the Loge Championship Box, from $120 to $130.

The new stadium however will finally have a Metro-North station ( NY's version of METRA )

Coming from Connecticut I would get on the train in New Haven in a heartbeat

A commuter rail station at Yankee Stadium will soon become a reality, now that another New York team - MTA Metro-North Railroad and the City of New York - have come to agreement on how the new station will be paid for, operated and maintained.

The new station will enhance public transportation to the area and greatly reduce neighborhood traffic around the stadium on game days. It is estimated that between 6,000 and 10,000 people will use the station for Yankee home games, which will also provide service to the area on non-game days. The new station will be open for Yankee fans and reverse commuters by the second quarter of 2009.

There is no parking for regular folks

Gas stations around Fenway get $80-$100 to park......

McDonald's on Boylston only charges $50 to park but guess who owns the land...New England Sports Ventures parent company of the Red Sox

No surprise there. It'll probably $60 by 2030.

I'm assuming you haven't been to Fenway. In all her splendor and glory, you can't get to that dump without taking a train.

The good news is that the T is much better than driving in Boston anyhow between the traffic and the douchebaggery of the drivers there.

Parking? We're here talking about parking in the Bronx?!

Just take the 4 or D train to the stadium and call it a day, people. Nobody in New York drives. :D:

The HoJo across the street was only $22 a day...of course you had to be guest at a HoJo that charged $160+ a night.

Regular folks don't drive, they take the subway.

You would be amazed at the number of folks from New Hampshire and Maine who happily arrive at Fenway looking for the garage :?:
