My husband and I fly into New York on Thursday - arriving at about 10:30. We just bought tickets to the 1:05 Yankees game; however I don't know what we're going to do with our luggage. I thought we could store at the stadium, but we can't. Does anyone have an suggestions? Now I'm afraid that we're going to lose the price we paid for the tickets - and that won't be a lot of fun!

Will the hotel hold them for you until you check in?

Good idea, Deek! You'll might have to hustle to get to the hotel then the stadium, but that would work.

Duchess,. drop them off at the Hotel, they will certainly hold them for you.

Or call the hotel Today and ask them what they recommend - be sure to speak to the manager or the concierge. They will recommend a courier or shuttle service

There's no way we can get to the hotel and then back out to the stadium - I don't think anyway. We fly into LaGuardia and our hotel is on W35th street. We will have carry on only.

Thoughts? I'm really starting to panic here.

Skittles, call the hotel and ask them for advice. You could hire a limo for the day to pick you up at the airport and sit waiting with your luggage at the stadium until you're ready to depart. smile

Hey Jee's idea is perfect - call the hotel and talk to the concierge or manager.

Don't worry, the airline will probably send your luggage to Boston anyway.

OK - they said to bring the luggage to the hotel and then take the 'D' train from the corner out to the game. She said to take a cab <$35.00> to the hotel and it should take about 30-40 minutes. Looks like we'll be cutting it close, but if we miss the first few minutes it won't be the worst thing in the world. Right?

I'm so mad at myself right now for not checking a little further before I had my husband buy the tickets. Idiot Skittles - you're an idiot <whacks head>.

leave your luggage with a young man outside Yankee stadium, give him $20 to watch them and pick them up on your way out

My experience with cab drivers in NYC is they can get you from here to there quicker than you could ever imagine. You will not enjoy the ride and push the imaginary brake pedal in the back seat 100 times or so, but you will get there pretty quick.

Thanks Pale. that's the way it was for us in San Francisco last year, too. We'll get there when we get there - and the hotel helped to calm me down a tad, too. At least we have almost 3 hours from landing <scheduled anyway> to the first pitch.

Go to the hotel first. Drop off luggage. You should get there about 11:30. You need to subway up to the Bronx. Take the 1/9 or 2/3 line to times square, take the shuttle over to Grand Cenral Station, then switch to the lexington avenue line, either 4, 5 or 6, I forget which one goes to stadium.

You don't want to take a cab to the stadium from the airport, even without the luggage issue. Subway is best way to go to and from. You'll make it. Subway ride is probably 30 minutes, no more from hotel.

Of course, the unspoken assumption in all these scenarios is that the plane arrives at La Guardia on time.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on that one. It's a direct flight from Nashville so hopefully we will.

Thanks for all of the pointers everyone. I'm afraid the Subway system is going to be too much for me to follow.

At least if you only have carry on you won't have to waste time in baggage claim.

I was in NY a couple of weeks ago stayed in a hotel about a block off of Time Square, the subway is no problem. Remeber this:

Uptown is towards thr Bronx, Downtown is towards Brooklyn
