BRONX. The Empire State Building. Central Park. The Statue of Liberty. Yankee Stadium. Few sights define the Big Apple as well as these. The historic “House that Ruth Built,” which dates from the Roaring ’20s, has been the stage for some of the game’s greatest performers and singular events: Lou Gehrig’s famous retirement speech and the on-field exploits the Babe, Joe DiMaggio and M & M Boys, Mr. October and the heroes of today. Watching a game here is a must for any sports fan, as is taking a stroll through the hallowed Monument Park, where the greatest Pin-Stripers are honored. Guided stadium tours available; reservations required for group tours. NB 2008 is the last year for tours at the current Yankee Stadium. In April 2009, the doors will open to their new complex.
