Metlife at EDC
Bernadette D. Apr 17, 2013
I went to EDC NY last year at Metlife and it was a great event. They utilized the entire Metlife grounds well and it was a great success. The stadium itself is absolutely HUGE and if I wasn't at school in Boston I would definitely try and go to a Giants game there. It is a great new stadium and it is pretty close to the city. The bus took only about 25 minutes from Port Authority.

MetLife stadium is a great stadium with excellent seating, field view, and a cool bar, in case you decided to bypass watching the game at your local bar to buy an expensive ticket to watch the game at a pricey bar inside the stadium, but I digress I had the opportunity to watch USC vs. Syracuse there this past September, which although was supposed to be considered a home game for Syracuse, ended up being covered with a sea of red and yellow. This brings up the most pertinent problem with MetLife stadium—it is in New Jersey. While the stadium manages to get filled for Jets and Giants games, it was half-full for Syracuse vs. USC. It isn't the most accessible stadium. If you’re driving from Long Island, prepare yourself for a possible 2-hour plus journey. Meanwhile, if you’re coming from NYC, you better be ok with riding a crowded bus. Although Metlife stadium is a bearable bus ride from the port authority, catching a bus back from the stadium after the whole crowd pours out to go home is simply a nightmare. Bitter Syracuse fans were crushed together with boasting USC fans, onto long, unorganized, and irritating lines, which lead to crammed busses. Basically, this is a recipe for disaster. If there are more drunk people from opposing teams than seats, then you’re guaranteed to have a problem. However, the crowd leaving the Syracuse game were much more tame than the fans would be leaving a Jets game. (Sorry Jets fans) Not to mention, NFL games usually fill the stadium. If a butt fumble or ill-advised shovel pass to a Patriots defender isn't enough to get you blood boiling, then your experience on the bus ride back definitely will put you over the edge. If you hear on the news that a Patriots fan was beat and trampled to death by Jets fans after a Gang Green goose egg performance, you can most certainly blame the Jets for choosing to play in Jersey. -Ryan McNamee
Great New Stadium
Risa C. Dec 10, 2012
I got the chance to check out the new Met Life Stadium shortly after it opened and was really impressed with the stadium in general. Weirdly I just realized, I've never seen a football game here but I have seen a few futbol games. The stadium is very modern and has a number of food and beverage stands including a giant full bar on the entrance level which is a nice place to booze up between quarters or halves - just note that you can't take your liquor out of the bar area. The stadium is also easily accessible by both car and public transportation from Penn Station, but if you're going to drive I highly recommend a carpool as parking for the last even I went to was almost $30.
GIANTS!

I am a huge Giants fan and how I only made it to my first game yesterday is beyond me. We crushed the Saints in a freezing cold game, but it totally made my experience being that it was my first time to MetLife Stadium. I actually really liked it. It's more of a maze than say Yankee Stadium and it's definitely harder to find plateau's to attempt to meet up with your friends sitting in separate sections, but the stadium is massive and awesome. I sat in 221A and let me tell you, the view was amazing. I will definitely be back here and go for this section again. You could see absolutely everything and if you can't, there are major TV screens that will show you pieces you missed. The food and drinks are ridiculously expensive even more so than the Yankees Stadium I feel like. The food is also pretty disgusting considering it costs that much. There are not many options and they kept running out of items last night. I feel like they poorly planned for crowds. I only saw beer around and again not a beer drinker. Also, to get there is kind of a hassle unless you drive. Traveling from Manhattan to NJ from the city is a nightmare of subway and train transfers. I think I'd be willing to rent a zip car next time. Overall, I will be back for a game for sure at some point this season.-
Good

I had a pretty good time when I came to the MetLife stadium to see U2. I'm not the biggest fan of U2, which is probably why I didn't have a great time. However, the stadium was pretty clean. It was somewhat of a hassle to get here from NYC, but I did enjoy myself. The sound system was pretty good and the workers were very nice! They continued to check on my parents and I to make sure we were able to navigate the area well, for it's pretty hard if it's your first time here.
BIG BLUE WRECKING CREW

I have yet to go to a concert at MetLife, though given its resemblance to the old Meadowlands where I saw the Boss slay a two-hour set, I can only imagine it's pretty great. More importantly, this is the home of the New York Giants, and it has all of the raucous attitude and team pride that goes with a successful football arena. It can be a little hard to navigate if it's your first time there, but the decor is gorgeous, and anyway the packed parking lot full of rabid tailgaters will certainly help you find your way (though ladies, there might be some hooting that goes along with directions--don't take it personally, they're hammered). If Coach Coughlin is your god, then this is your church, so put on your brightest blues Sunday morning and get ready to go crazy.
Difficult to Navigate, but Good Venue Overall
Chelsea D. Nov 5, 2012
I came here for a Jets game recently and hung out in one of the mezzanine clubs, specifically the Chase Club, for most of the game. The club was nice, clean and we had a great view of the game. The food was also good, but pricey - though that's to be expected at most stadiums. My only downside to the stadium is that it seemed really hard to navigate. When we first arrived we walked in circles looking for the Chase Club. Along the way, we asked numerous staff members & they didn't seem to have a clue. We we're given many wrong directions before we figured it out. I would think that the staff would be more helpful but, then again, the place is huge.
Good venue for a concert as long as you have decent seats.

I saw my first concerts at Metlife Stadium a few weeks ago when Bruce Springsteen played 3 sold-out shows. I have never been a fan of concerts in stadiums - I always feel too far away from the band and the sound is typically terrible. That being said, I had a great experience at Metlife. Part of this was certainly due to Springsteen's performances - there are few bands out there that can put on a show like he can. But the stadium itself was not bad at all. Getting there was a breeze. I drove to one show and hit essentially zero traffic on the way in and out. I took the train (NJ transit) to another show, and it was even easier. The train drops you off literally 25 yards from the stadium entrance and they did a great job of getting us through the gate quickly. The sound quality in the stadium completely depended on where you were standing. For the first show, I was on the floor, just to the front right of the sound board and the sound was fantastic. I was really surprised that the mix was so good in a stadium. On the other hand, at the final show of the run my seats were in the upper bowl, and the sound was pretty terrible. It was bad enough that we moved down to the lower bowl after the first 2 songs and found a pair of empty seats that we used for the rest of the show. For concerts, I still prefer arenas to stadiums, but Metlife Stadium is worth going to for a band you like, especially if you can get decent seats.
