As I have mentioned before, I am heading out to New York this weekend to see the A's take on BOTH New York Teams. First they hit up Shea Stadium and then the following weekend, Yankee Stadium. And like a good A's groupie, I will be following right along.
I will only be going to the Saturday games, and I really want to be sure I get everything in at each Stadium. I don't want to miss an inch of those stadiums because this will be my only opportunity to see them before they are replaced in 2009.
So, I would really like to hear from anyone who has gone to these two stadiums. I know that the Yankees have their Monument Park, and I fully intend to visit it. My question is, is there anything along those lines at Shea? Is there anything historical or special I should make a point to check out once I am there? Any food recommendation?
Same for Yankee Stadium, anything you would suggest making a point to see? Any food that is classic Yankee Stadium?
Basically I want to hear, "If you can only go once to Yankee/Shea Stadium, you absolutely can't miss ..." (fill in the blank)
This would be very helpful. I really want to get the full experience of each stadium, but because I am only going to one game each, I am terribly afraid of missing something. So any advice, tips, or suggestions would be very welcome!
Thanks for the help!
