PNC park is great. I've always liked Detroit as well



Even though it's pretty far from downtown the view from Citizens Bank Park is great too.

Love seeing all the pics in this thread. I haven't been to most of them, but based on the pics I'd say:
1. PNC. Fantastic views of the city, the water and the bridge. Looks like a postcard.
2. Detroit: Very nice, but IMO a distant second to PNC
3. St. Louis. It is nice that the iconic arch is so visible.
4. Baltimore: Great location. I love going to games there.

San Diego and Seattle are pretty good also. Philly and Atlanta both have cool buildings that are visible, but as others have said the stadiums are a bit too far away for the views to be really stunning or give much energy.

Never been there (or Pittsburgh, really), but I gotta give the nod to PNC. Absolutely breathtaking view of the city. Comerica (home to my Tigers) is beautiful as well. Love going to games there.

Sorry but I just absolutely disagree. While I wouldn't want the linc anywhere else. Tailgating is part of football and time honored tradition.

Baseball though?

I'd much rather have the ball park downtown and be able to actually go to a bar or restaurant and then walk over to the game. philly live is going to try create this type of atmosphere but it's going to be so fake i'm already cringing.

i love the eagles and to an extent the flyers and sixers down there. but the phillies?

not having their ballpark downtown was a totally missed opportunity. imagine citizens bank park right by the historical district on east market as the gem of the revitalization of that area. instead of being centered around the crappy gallery and other second rate shops there is a world class ballpark right there, imagine all the amazing bars and restaurants that would now be all around there. the one desolate part of philadelphia's downtown would have become one of the most thriving.

it actually upsets me when i think about this missed opportunity. it would have done wonders for this city.


as far as this discussion though. hands down, without a doubt pittsburgh. beautiful beautiful ballpark and absolutely the best view of the sky line.

It's a good view compared to most views of most ball parks in the MLB.The sky needle looks incredible from within the ball park. The 4 skyscrapedrs look as if they are right next to the ball park.
