Hello from New York! The best option is to go to the hotel and drop off your luggage. Go to the 34th Street Subway Station. Purchase a Metro Card at one of the machines (cash/credit card) in the station . The price for one way is $2.50 per person. (Buy a card for $10 so both of you can go round trip). Take the uptown “D” train to 161st Street (about 30 minutes) . The stadium is a block away.

Why do I feel like I’ve just written an operating procedure again.

Derek Jeter was placed on the 15- day disabled list today with a strained right calf:

Enjoy the game!

Just some more info for you:

How to use the Metro Card on the subway: http://www.mta.info/metrocard/easyuse.htm#sub

Here’s the “D” train pamphlet. http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/pdf/tdcur.pdf

The “D” is an express train in Manhattan and local in the Bronx, and will make 8 stops from 34th Street: 42nd Street- Bryant Park, 47-50th Streets - Rockefeller Center, 7th Avenue, 59th Street - Columbus Circle, 125th Street, 145th Street, 155th Street, and 161st Street - Yankee Stadium. The subway runs every 10 minutes .

When you get off the subway at 161st Street, look for people wearing Yankee tee shirts/caps and just follow them one block to the stadium. (There may even be some Texas Rangers fans.)

New York City weather forecast:

Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 85. North wind around 9 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 65. South wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 85. West wind between 3 and 11 mph.

Thursday Night: A chance of showers, mainly after 2am. Increasing clouds, with a low around 65. South wind between 6 and 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

Friday: Showers likely, with thunderstorms also possible after 11am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 77. North wind between 5 and 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Friday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before midnight, then a slight chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 64. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 84.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 63.

Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 83.

Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 65.

If I didn't have a New Yorker escorting me on the subways, I would take a cab.

Wow - actually that's not bad; although I was warned about traffic and having to 'sit' while heading to the game. Is 12 min. the norm?

As you can tell I'm just full of questions.

Taking the subway to Long Island, when you think you are headed north to the Bronx - frustrating.

Paying a cabby from Iraq to get you to the game on time - priceless. I took a number of cab rides at the end of May in New York. Paid $39 for a 8.9 mile ride and $42 for a 11.9 mile ride.

The lowest tip one can choose is 20% when using the screen in the back seat. But it is fast....

In a taxi you can see the city. I traveled subway most of the time when visiting my daughter and son-in-law who work there, but missed the real sites. Last trip was by taxi and with all of us paying one taxi fare, it was worth it! My 2 1/2 yr old grandson thinks he knows how to use that screen to pay, too! It was priceless.

Have a safe trip back to your hotel on West 35th Street. And, don’t spend all your money in Macy’s Flagship Store on West 34th Street.

Thanks guys. We got back this morning. The game was wonderful - just too much sun for me. Went up into the Empire State Building, walked around Central Park. Went downtown and saw the Statue of Liberty from across the bay - Wall Street - and Ground Zero. Ate lunch at Madison Park at the Shake Shack, saw The Addams Family on Broadway, and walked, and walked, and walked. We're both worn out, but had a really good time. Rode the subway several times - it's not too bad once you get your bearings.

Actually it didn't bother me so much. My stomach got a little weird, but not too bad.

What was Ground Zero like??? I imagine pretty powerful. One of my goals is to see it.

Yes, but you can't really get close enough to see a whole lot now with the construction going on there.
