Cat singlets? Cat singlets?

Postponed. Drats, no chance for squirrel onesies tonight.

Hey guys... coming to northern Jersey tomorrow for vacation. Looking for advice on how to get to the stadium from Butler/Vernon the easiest way. Hope to get some stub hub ticks but not sure how to travel.

[3] IIRC, Path trains run by the stadium.
look up their wbsite.

[3] The Metro-North train on the Hudson Line stops at the Stadium. But first you have to get from that area in Jersey to Manhattan. I'm sure there are buses that reach those two towns, but they may be just as problematic time-wise. If you're going by public transportation, check with NY MTA and Port Authority NY/NJ for options and schedules.

However, if you drive (and that might be your best option overall), if you have a smartphone I would download the Google Maps app; it will give you the best directions outside of a physical GPS unit.

It also depends on what day you go and what time. I find that rush hours here tend to be 5-10am into the city and 3-8pm out. Highways will be backed up for a long way, so park way uptown and take the subway in. Uptown parking lots are much, much cheaper than stadium parking and just as safe.

[5] Plus the B,D and 4 trains still stop at Yankee Stadium. There are plenty of buses too, but that can be a bit sketchy because of the auto traffic near the stadium.

It depends on where you are in northern Jersey.

If you're in Newark (or near the PATH), then combine RBJ and Will's advice: take the PATH to World Trade Center, walk over to Fulton St., and take the #4 to the Stadium. That's better than driving, I promise.

If you're not on the PATH path but can get a NJ Transit to Penn Station, that also works -- just walk a couple blocks to Herald Square and take the D train.

If you're in North Bergen or thereabouts, you probably should drive, because it will take you too long to get to Manhattan by public transportation. Driving directions are not hard -- just cross the GWB, take the Deegan south, and shortly take the exit for the Stadium. But it's not a fun drive on game day (or any day, really).

Thanks to all for the tips!

At least the Yanks did not lose last night.
