I Miss Shea
An D. Aug 12, 2013
Citi Field is great - a beautiful new stadium. However, I miss Shea Stadium. Citi Field is great because everything is new and beautiful. There are more food selections. However, there are less seats, and the game is ultimately about having the most amount of fans in the building. Citi Field doesn't have that same homey feel that Shea had, mainly because it's named after a business and not a significant contribution the the Mets history. I still love going to Mets games, but nothing will ever be better than Shea Stadium.
An Upgrade to Shea Stadium
Erica B. Jun 28, 2013
I have been to Citi Field twice and I can tell you that it is an upgrade to Shea Stadium. I remember Shea as an old, quite small stadium with seats that had little to no leg room and the overall look was gray. Citi is a much more open, bigger, lively stadium with more more to do and see than Shea. I like the little boardwalk they have, the rotunda with Jackie Robinson's number featured as soon as you walk in. The resturants there looked expensive, but I like the classy field that it brings to the ballpark. I didn't get a chance to see entire park, but from what I have seen, it has much to offer. I did also go into the team store and brought a Jackie Robinson t-shirt which was expensive along with everything else in the store. The whole ballpark is expensive, but I will recommend Mets fans to go and enjoy.
Vintage Look, Modern Feel
Matt B. Feb 22, 2013
Citi Field is a wonderful step up from the formerly dilapidating Shea Stadium. While most of the best memories of the Mets lie in the past, the ballpark was clearly designed with just that in mind. The main rotunda pays tribute to the great Jackie Robinson, who broke the sport’s color barrier and was a pioneer of New York baseball during his days with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Further inside is a beautiful museum, featuring exhibits and artifacts from former Mets greats. The park itself has a retro look and feel, featuring brick behind home plate and vintage baseball architecture. The food is probably the best of any major sports venue in New York, despite its extravagant prices. The stadium also has a variety of clubs and lounges that are accessible to fans based on their ticket prices, giving a refuge for overheated husbands and bored wives. Mets fans will be quick to point out that the team doesn’t get a lot right, but Citi Field is a delightful exception. The park makes for a fun baseball outing that does its best to allow you to forget about the actual team on the field.
an upgrade for sure
Emilia G. Jan 13, 2013
I've been a Met fan forever, but Shea was, well...gross. Citi field is beautiful, clean and fun. Even one of my die hard Yankee fan friends prefers it! It's smaller than Shea, and I've found that it's really hard to get a bad seat. It's also cleaner, more organized and easier to navigate. (And safer). You also have a lot more food options than hot dogs. Be sure to check out the Shake Shack and a number of other options as well. The Mets probably won't win, but you will certainly have a great time. **Students: go onto the mets website and look for student tickets. they're not offered every game, but occasionally they are offered at the price of 10 dollars!
Go Not For the Team
Cadie C. Dec 12, 2012
Although I have been born & raised a Yankees fan, living in Queens & having the Mets close by, is not only convenient but also much cheaper. Trying to get tickets to a Met's game, over a Yankee game, is not only going to save you the agony of trying to find tickets and trekking it up to the Bronx, but also saves your wallet. Good thing the Met's are an aren't very good. I had been to the previous Met's home, Shea Stadium, and I have to say that they did a very nice job in designing Citi Field. Keeping the old feel of Shea Stadium, with open walls so that fans don't feel closed in. Also tailgating in the parking lot, is acceptable, just bring cups, as I had been advised by a nice officer in the past. Also if there is time before or after the game, you can always venture right outside the outfield walls to McFadden's Ballpark, a bar attached to Citifield without a ticket needed.
I'm a Yankees Fan...
Risa C. Dec 8, 2012
I'm a Yankees fan and I have to say that Citiefield actually surpasses Yankee Stadium as the premier baseball stadium in New York City...too bad about the team though. The stadium was wisely designed to catch a breeze off the bay nearby, which is great during those sweltering summer games, and not so great for those early season games. As someone who also quickly gets ADD at a baseball game, Citifield has a lot of things to keep me entertained aside from the game, from the awesome food selection to the numerous shops often filled with girlfriends that have been dragged in to keep their boyfriends company. I've also been here for a soccer game and really enjoyed the set up for this type of event as well. Oh and it's also really easy to access the stadium by public transportation which is always a plus for crowded events.
Lets go Mets!
Sydnie S. Dec 2, 2012
I love visiting Citi Field! It's so beautiful and clean! Even though I may be a Yankees fan, Citi Field is very clean and easy to navigate. The fans are great here too! I've never been upset by the food vendors or specialty stands. I would have to say the only negative about Citi Field is the team that plays in it. I may be a New Yorker, but the experience of Citi Field is not as great when the Mets almost always lose. However, Shake Shack is absolutely delicious! I only wish that the lines weren't so long!
Great stadium, crappy team
Chris K. Nov 26, 2012
I would go so far as to say that the new Shea Stadium surpasses the new Yankee Stadium in the ways of being a decent sports arena. The new Yankee Stadium has just one too many screens and specialty stands, and feels almost sterile at times. The new Shea--sorry, Citi Field, meanwhile, still has a nice old-school vibe, and includes food vendors like Blue Smoke that will blow away your typical Nathan's Foot Long with its barbecue beef and beans. There's just one problem, though: the Mets. That's right, while Citi Field is wonderful, its team is absolutely garbage, and no amount of underdog solidarity can ever cover that up. Definitely come through to see a game or two if you get a chance, just don't expect the Mets to win. Ever. That way, if they maaaaybe do, it'll be a pleasant surprise.
Nice Stadium
Chelsea D. Oct 4, 2012
I really like Citi Field, even though I'm a Yankees fan. The seats were comfortable, restrooms were clean and the concourses were wide - very easy to get around. A big plus in my book are the concession stands: Shake Shack and Blue Smoke, yum! My friends and I got tickets to a game this summer through McFadden's (a bar connected to the stadium), where we had an hour open bar & free food before the game. It was packed there and the tickets, which included everything, were cheap (seats weren't bad either). I think you'll enjoy the stadium if you go, the game itself I can't vouch for.
Citi Field
Brett J. Aug 13, 2012
The biggest complaint initially with Citi Field was the lack of tributes to Mets history, instead feeling more like a shrine to Fred Wilpon's long-lost Brooklyn Dodgers. That issue has since been addressed, as were the outfield walls, which were too green, too high, and too far from home plate--robbing David Wright, in particular, of his power numbers. While the throwback field is questionably an upgrade functionally and aesthetically from Shea Stadium, it has yet to produce anywhere near the baseball energy that the tacky symbol of the 1980's exuded. Sure, it features concession stands with Shake Shack and Blue Smoke, wider concourses, more comfortable seats, amenities, and family entertainment. Now, if only it would house a baseball team worthy of the City in which it sits...
