The new ballpark is located across the street from the original stadium, in the Bronx borough of New York City. The stadium construction cost $1.5 billion, making it the most expensive baseball stadium that has ever been built. The stadium was built with granite, pre-cast concrete and Indiana limestone, to mirror the original Yankee stadium exterior. Join over 52,000 fans to cheer on the hometown New York Yankees and have fun in The Big Apple. Stay close to the stadium, in the nearby Best Western hotel and enjoy a wonderful night's rest.
