Fun in the sun-

First off, God bless you and your son.

I am a lifetime Yankee fan myself and see a game with my father every summer. Not only is Yankee stadium an awesome place it is great to go to with family. I always stay at the Hilton NewYork on Ave. of the America's (6th Ave) in Midtown. Great location and good quality. It is reasonably priced for NYC but good quality.

My father being a restauranteur I have dined at some of the citys best restaurants. What type of food are you interested and maybe I could recommend something you and your son would enjoy.

Take Care and Go Yankees!!!

Also, there really isn't a bad seat in Yankee Stadium. I try to get to a game once a year when I head to NY for vacation (family is there) and never had a bad seat.

God Bless you son.

Fun in the sun-

The subway is very easy. I remember the first time I took it was to Yankee Stadium! Although I'm sure a local resident could tell you better then myself. I visit the area 4-5 times a year. I believe you only change trains one time. When your son gets off in the Bronx it will be an awesome moment when he see's the stadium.

There is a Yankee Clubhouse store in Midtown Manhattan (not sure what street) but it is huge and has all kinds of baseball memrobillia.

May I ask how old your son is and I might be able to recommend some other attractions/restaurants ect.

Fun in the sun-

I am very sorry to hear about your son. God bless you and your family.

May I suggest a few restaurant ideas:

Tao in Midtown- Pan Asian food. Great spring rolls, fried rice and sushi. The main attraction there other then the food; a 2 story tall Buda in the dining room. Cool atmosphere.

Jean Georges Vonrichten in Trump Towers- If you enjoy fine dining, this is the tops! You can either dine in the formal dining room or Nougatine, a casual and less pricy setting. Top rated French food.

Brooklyn Cafe- Across from Manhattan, it boasts some of the best views of the city. Casual contempoary food. Basically, you are there for the amazing views.

Various Pizza and Diners- You have to choose your own diner according to ethnic influence, though some have none. I enjoy the diner at 6th Ave and 52ed street. Basic NYC diner. Star Diner. If you enjoy pizza, seeing those NYC style large slices walking by you will be tempted to stop in.


Also, here are some attraction ideas as well:

Pier 17, South Street Seaport- Towards Lower Manhattan (take a cab if you stay in Midtown) Great view of the Financial District. Walk onto the pier. Grab a bite at the food court or a causal waterfront restaurant.

9/11 site- Not much for me to say. I have visted and there is not much to see but the construction for the Freedom Tower as well as large posters of the names of men and women who's lives ended that terrible day.

Central Park- Great, casual walk through the park. The zoo is a great stop.

Walking tours- I always enjoying just strolling and that is the best way to sew the city. Must see Fifth Ave. SoHo is also a nice area to see.

I hope I gave you some ideas to think about.
Take Care.
