Yankees – East 153rd Street is one of Metro-North Railroad’s newest stations. Its construction coincided with the building of the new Yankee Stadium. The station opened on May 23, 2009, shortly after Yankee Stadium’s opening on April 3, 2009. The station stop not only serves customers who are traveling to Yankee games, but to all events hosted at the Stadium, including soccer and football matches, the Papal visit and NYU’s graduation ceremony.
