Home of the New York Mets
It's NOT Mets enough (I am a big Mets fan) and the damn OF fence is too high and far...but it is a beautiful place to watch a game. Been there twice--too much has been made about the Ebbets stuff. The rotunda is nice, Jackie was a hero., Shops are fine, Nike store is WAY too small. Shake Shack should be twice as big to accomodate the crowds. Prices for food are not much higher; condiments concierge is a hoot! The Wilpons made a mistake dissing the orange and blue though! Black fences? Green seats? Red shirted security--made me think I was in Philly! Oy. Hot dogs are improved too! And this yr's souvenir cups are actually nice! Going back Sunday, last scheduled trip. In sum, very nice, wide aisles, nice staff. Parking was a cinch after the last few yrs and subways are running express more now. It'd be nice if they'd grab a few blocks back from the chop shops for shops, etc. across the street. Site lines in OF corners are no good from upper deck; HATE that Excelsior level is closed off unless you have a ticket. Like the ease of movement, but wish it was more open like Philly feels, though the seating areas are very similar in design (HOK!) 5000 more seats would have been smart, this is NY! Make the fences royal blue, add some seats, improve the HR potential a bit, and it'd be the best I've been to. Not yet though. Let's go Mets.
