Citi Field is home to the New York Mets of Major League
Baseball. Finished in 2009, the stadium has the capacity for
about 42,000 spectators in an arena that was designed specifically
for baseball with a natural grass field.
Seating is angled toward the infield and positioned lower
and closer to the field that in other parks. The exterior façade
and main entrance, called the “Jackie Robinson Rotunda,”
are inspired by the design of the old Ebbets Field, where the
Brooklyn Dodgers played from 1913 to 1957.
Inside scoop: Enjoy the baseball and the food. Mama’s of
Corona, a popular Italian restaurant/café located in the shadows
of the stadium, has an in-the-park stand, as do various famous
restaurants and Shake Shack.
