Yankee's pitcher David Cone and catcher Jorge Posado joined Mayor Bloomberg for today's unveiling of the new 153rd Street Station Metro North station at Yankee Stadium. The station is a 10 minute ride from Grand Central and provides express service to and from Poughkeepsie and New Haven. The mayor says the Yankees have that over the Mets.
The first train to the new Yankees - East 153rd Street Station leaves Grand Central on Saturday at 5:58 am.
This is the first new railway line to open in the Bronx in decades.
One way peak time tickets to the stadium will cost $6.50, weekends $3.25, and mid-days $5.00.
