Soaking Up the Stadium Atmosphere in New York


Tourists take holidays in New York for all sorts of reasons: the sightseeing, the museums, Broadway, the arts scene, nightlife, shopping. It’s all there for the taking in NYC and it’s little wonder that this City attracts over 45 million tourists a year.


But it’s not just retail therapy, musicals and culture that attract people. New York city is also home to several sports teams and stadia. If you’re visiting the Big Apple and want to soak up the atmosphere in a world class sports arena, you might want to try one of these:


Yankee Stadium


The Yankee Stadium, located in the Bronx, is home to the New York Yankees, the famous Major League Baseball team. The stadium has a capacity of over 50,000 and an unrivalled atmosphere when full. Ticket prices range from just over $30 right up to $300 depending on where you want to sit, of course!

Madison Square Garden Arena


If basketball’s your thing, then it’s the New York Knicks you’ll want to see. They play NBA basketball at Madison Square Gardens, an arena that also hosts music gigs and other events. For basketball games, the capacity it just under 20,000.


For sports fanatics, a trip to NYC just wouldn’t be complete with watching the Knicks.


This arena is also used by NHL ice hockey team, New York Rangers with a similar capacity as for basketball games.
