"Staten Island Yankees" Staten Island and Staten Island Ferry Tip by bradyj

I went to friday night game to the see the minor league Staten Island Yankees. It was the best thing I did in NYC. We took the ferry across (free) walked five minutes to the stadium, and paid $11 for a seat at first base four rows up.

The park is right on the river so you have this panoramic view of manhattan while watching the game in an old-style ball park.

Very friendly people, and a very family-friendly atmosphere with lots of goofy inter-inning antics from the team mascot.

Skip the yankees (and the $100 ticket price) and instead take a relaxing break in a lovely stadium right on the water.

Address: Take ferry to staten island and follow the signs
