Citi Field is a baseball park located in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in New York City. Completed in 2009, it is the home field of the New York Mets of the National League East division of Major League Baseball. The stadium was built as a replacement for the adjacent Shea Stadium, which opened in 1964.
Citi Field was designed by Populous (then HOK Sport), and is named after Citigroup, a New York financial services company that purchased the naming rights. The $850 million baseball park was funded with $615 million in public subsidies, including the sale of New York City municipal bonds that are to be repaid by the Mets plus interest. The payments will offset property taxes for the lifetime of the park. The Mets are receiving $20 million annually from Citibank in exchange for naming the stadium Citi Field.

One of my favorite parks to attend a game. The main concourse is open to the outside and you are able to walk around the entire stadium. Tons of cool baseball foods/drinks. Great place to bring the family. Not too much to do right outside the stadium. Totally worth a visit if you are thinking about it and a must for baseball fans.

Concert venue review: Dead and Company: featuring John Mayor. Great, efficient facilities. Friendly staff. Organized exit after the show. John Mayor guitar skills blended perfectly with Dead and Co. Inspired a haiku... -Wise group with young strings, symbiotic energy. Generations bond. -

Easy to access via transit. A much more intimate community-focused vibe compared to the sterility of Yankee Stadium. The craft beer here is amazing. The food at the regular stations leaves something to be desired compared to that of the "high-end" booths.

Awesome baseball stadium. Intimate while still feeling like a big league stadium fit for NYC. Tons of food and drink options scattered throughout the stadium, but especially beyond the outfield wall. Now if only the team could match it's digs.

CitiField most definitely can't be confused with Shea. CF has no personality. The main concourse is like a Subway station. Seems like it could use a coat of paint... There are WAY TO MANY PLACES TO EAT! People wander around bumping in to each other trying to decide what to eat. What ever happened to just a dog and a liquid? Prices anywhere in the place are out of this world. Teams come and go, maybe there will be a good one there one day. Take the 7 train there is the most economical. I can't imagine what it costs to park there.
