Take your swim trunks and flippy-floppies

Exciting news, Yankee fans: It’s once again possible to take a boat to Yankee Stadium. If the 4 train is too crowded for you, just hop on the Water Taxi — brought to you by Delta Airlines — at Pier 11 near Wall St., 90 minutes before game time. According to the Water Taxi’s website, these boat rides take an hour, and those on the boat can buy cocktails, beer and food while floating up the East River. It’s first come, first serve, and the boats are limited to just 147 passengers. Unfortunately, the Water Taxi isn’t offering rides back to Wall St. after the game, but for Will Leitch, that doesn’t matter. He’s very excited to travel to his baseball games this summer on a boat.

  3. I work in SoHo and I might have to do this rather than head to the train once this summer or something…

    I took my dad and lil bro to a game the last year at the old stadium for fathers day. We are from upstate and my dad doesnt like even being in a car in a city, so we took the Yankee Clipper in….it was a pretty sweet gig.

    took this to the game yesterday, and it was awesome. for $1, it beats the yankee clipper and you don’t get stuck at the park, or have to leave earlier than you might want… you also have to take some other method getting home, but it was nice…
