“It’s a beautiful stadium. Very convenient location for all New Yorkers. The 4 train stops directly there..how easy can it get. The staff are very nice and courteous. Great attitude especially when dealing with rowdy customers. So many options for dining and drinks. What a difference between seeing a live game versus the TV. This is the new New York.” -Melly C

“Beautiful park and all of the staff I encountered was very nice. There is ample parking, several fields, walkways, etc. I especially love that people can sit near the water. The only downside is the smell. New York water lol.” -Mika Jen
Citi Field is a baseball park located in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in New York City. Completed in 2009, it is the home field of the New York Mets of the National League division of Major League Baseball. The stadium was built as a replacement for and adjacent to Shea Stadium, which opened in 1964 next to the site of the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
Citi Field was designed by Populous (then HOK Sport), and is named after Citigroup, a New York financial services company which purchased the naming rights. The $850 million baseball park was funded with $615 million in public subsidies, including the sale of New York City municipal bonds which are to be repaid by the Mets plus interest. The payments will offset property taxes for the lifetime of the park. The Mets are receiving $20 million annually from Citibank in exchange for naming the stadium Citi Field.

“Great ballpark! Fans here are genuinely supportive of their team, and are invested in the game, which makes for a great gameday atmosphere (that doesn’t apply at all ballparks!) Fantastic tribute to Jackie Robinson in the rotunda entrance. Lots of great food options. Great views from any seat in the park. Easily accessible from NYC via the 7 train. Will definitely go again!” -Millie2981

“Good place to see a ballgame. Good views no matter where you sit. Very family oriented, with between innings games for the kids. Better than going to a major league stadium.” -John D’Amico
