NYC Stadiums Overview

Carnesecca Arena (Jamaica, NY) - Arena in NYC

Even those few sorry souls who know nothing of baseball or who have never ventured out to a big rock concert will recognize the names of New York stadiums.

Yankee Stadium (version two) opened in 2009, replacing the previous Yankee stadium just next door that had hosted sellout crowds since 1923. Citi Field gives forty-five thousand Mets fans a place to sit and, although technically in New Jersey, MetLife Stadium is home to both the New York Giants and New York Jets football teams. All three of these big NY stadiums are also known to host major concerts during the off season.

An arguably even more famous NYC stadium is Madison Square Garden – normally referred to simply as The Garden or MSG – a multi-purpose indoor arena where the New York Knicks play basketball, the New York Rangers play hockey, and a ton of concerts set up throughout the year in-between boxing and wrestling matches.

The Izod Center is another big stadium in New York used for everything from college basketball to concerts to American Idol auditions, while the Nassau Coliseum adds even more hockey to the mix in and around its own packed music calendar.

The list goes on and on when it comes to stadiums in NYC: You’ve got Louis Armstrong Stadium, Sportime Stadium, Arthur Ashe Stadium, and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (all tennis, duh!), Red Bull Arena (soccer), Prudential Center (literally just about everything), and even all that doesn’t account for every New York stadium there is to see.

So clear your calendar and get to work, people, you’ve got a ton of NYC stadiums to check out!
