ParkWhiz is proud to offer a smorgasbord of Yankee Stadium parking. We’ve added a couple options for Yankees parking this season, including Select Garages’ lot at 70 E 162nd St, right across from Yankee Stadium. We also provide several lots with a “special online rate,” meaning you’re assured to pay equal or less online with ParkWhiz than you would at drive-up. These include MPG Parking’s garage at 171 E 165th St, just across the Grand Concourse. Another is Park-it’s lot on 1295 Jerome Ave, about a half-mile from Yankee Stadium, which charges only $7.50 per game.
The new Yankee Stadium opened in 2009, replacing the original ballpark of the same name that had been around since 1923. The $1.5 billion project took three years, and stands as the most expensive ballpark in the world, and second in all arenas only to MetLife Stadium across the Hudson River. The new building retains the historic persona of the original, now-demolished Yankee Stadium. Most notably, the artifacts of Monument Park, an in-stadium museum paying tribute to the dozens of Yankee legends, were transferred into the new Yankee Stadium. The landmark frieze, which spanned the upper decks of the original ballpark until the 1970’s, has been resurrected at the new Yankee Stadium. The Yankees also put together the interior Great Hall, another showcase of that prestigious Yankee tradition the team loves to shove in your face.
It doesn’t take the savviest of travelers to realize Yankee Stadium parking on game days can turn into a mad scene with New York City traffic and road closures surrounding the ballpark. One couldn’t be blamed for feeling uneasy searching for a Yankee Stadium parking space. Booking in advance to at least know exactly where you’re going and how much you’re paying can remove at least some of the game-day stress. Our options range from that Select Garages lot right next door for $35 to the Park-it on Jerome Ave for $7.50, which plenty of choices in between. Garages, valets, and even bathrooms are some of the amenities offered by ParkWhiz lots.
