The 1923 Yankee Stadium was a historic landmark in the world of Major League Baseball. Some of the sport's greatest players spent their careers there, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio. Though they'll never be able to replace that historic monument, the franchise debuted their new stadium in 2009, directly across the street from the old park. The "new" Yankee Stadium has many new features, such as expanded walkways, more concessionaires, and a renovated Monument Park. Lifetime fans will notice familiar touches, though, the biggest among them being the outfield frieze back in its original location around the upper deck. Suite and party facilities are available for those looking for something slightly more private. Check the website for pricing, schedules and other info.
For decades, Harlem residents were forced to take the subway in order to see a new movie. Basketball legend Magic Johnson changed all that when he opened this totally modern multiplex theater off 125th Street. The much-appreciated complex plays first-run Hollywood films, with a few art house selections thrown into the mix. And with an increasing number of good restaurants in the area and beautiful Central Park nearby, Harlem is becoming a real destination spot. Subway services also available close by.
The Apollo Theater is a distinguished and legendary landmark in Harlem.

The theater has been restored, and every Wednesday at 7:30p the stage is opened to amateurs; when heckling is not just common, but expected. There are also musical performances held on other nights. Admission varies. Call for details.

Right in the heart of Manhattan stands this oasis of rolling pastures and gardens, stretching from Midtown to Harlem. It was created in 1857 by Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, and sprawls over a wonderful 843 acres (341.15 hectares). Bustling with activity, walkers, rollerbladers, bikers and joggers hurriedly compete for space while lovers meet at the Bethesda Fountain on Bethesda Terrace. To the north, visitors wonder at the architecture of Belvedere Castle, and found nearby is the Delacorte Theater where plays are staged during summer. Over time, Central Park has blended so seamlessly with Manhattan that it is hard to disassociate the two. Also within its folds are other delights, including the Central Park Wildlife Conservation Center and the Central Park Zoo, as well as the wonderfully-restored Carousel.
