Profile

After playing on the south side of 161st Street in "the House That Ruth Built" since 1923, the Yankees crossed over to the north side in 2009 and into this $1.6 billion ballpark. Unlike the old Yankee Stadium, this one is state of the art and boasts wide concourses with views of the field. Many elements from the original carry over here, from the limestone exterior to the signature frieze above the upper deck to the manual scoreboards next to the bullpens. That said, no stadium in 1923 came equipped with a 59-foot-by-101-foot high-definition video board or a steakhouse with a 100-bottle wine list. The  main entrance is the Great Hall, an indoor plaza running from Gate 4 behind home plate to Gate 6 near the corner of 161st and River, where the subways let out. The majority of fans enter hereso 26 turnstiles go a long way in reducing bottlenecks.
