Opened in 2009 to replace the adjacent Shea Stadium—and still referred to as Shea by those protesting the corporate naming rights—Citi Field is the home of the New York Mets. It's located in Flushing Meadows—Corona Park Queens, near all the World's Fair relics. The ballpark has just under 42,000 seats and features a variety of entertainment and dining options, most notably the popular Shake Shack kiosk. It's fairly easily accessible by the 7 train or the Port Washington Branch of the Long Island Rail Road.
