    A dollar for parking.. Hard to fathom!

    NY Rangers ticket prices have gotten crazy too. Back in the 80's, my friend had season tickets in the old "Orange Seats". The tickets were $16 a game. Now they're $236. I don't go to basketball games and I'm just guessing, but I wouldn't be surprised if Knicks tickets are the worst of all the sports when it comes to price increases over the years.

    Hockey would be right up there with basketball too, if comparing from 30 plus years ago.

    I remember paying $99 in 1996 for Giants seats on Yankee trails. Now it is over $240

    One of the cool things about the Yankee Stadium days (different time and place!) was that after the game a good number of the players would head across the street to the bowling alley bar to hang out with the fans. I was only a kid but I'll never forget that!

    If not, call the FO and ask.
    Okay, I e-mailed them and they replied and said they look at the parking pass waiting list in May/June, and will e-mail those on the waiting list then to let them know if there are available passes.

    That's awesome...

    After a Giants game, were fans allowed to leave the Yankee Stadium by walking onto the field and towards the exits? Like after Yankee baseball games back then.

    Frank Gifford mentioned that in his book. There were a couple of local places/restaurants they gathered together.... including Toots Shor's downtown.

    I really don't recall. My dad's seats were right behind the goal post in the bleachers, and near the ramp thing. When the game was over we'd just book down the ramp and head for the bar!

    Toots Shor's downtown sounds a little classier then some of the places I saw LT post-game.....
