We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

There has always been good subway service out to Yankee Stadium, but now there is a new railroad service and a new Yankees-E. 153rd St. train station to make things easier for the suburbanites (how often does one hear about a new train service and a new train station?):
From the Northern Suburbs:
Take Metro-North Railroad to its new Yankees-East 153rd Street Station; there's direct weekend-game service from the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven Lines, as well as weekday service, and shuttle trains from Grand Central. Click here for details.
It's a great amenity for folks in Westchester and CT, because the traffic and the parking have often been discouraging for them.
How well does the baseball transportation work in Boston?
In Beantown you catch any number of "T" trolleys or buses right to Kenmore Square. Then it is just a short walk up Brookline Ave to Fenway, perhaps a 3 or 4 minute walk. Seems to work well from what I've observed. Any one have any recent experience riding these "T"'s to Fenway? I have not for many years.
GMP, my wife and I went in last summer. I hadn't been to the paak in 20 years. It's still the same , as you explained above. We picked up the "T" at Alewife station in Cambridge, made a transfer at Paak station to the Kenmore line. Like pilgrims going to Mecca, instead of praying, We all watch a game at the best ballpaak in the country.
P.S.- If we Sox fans rode Acela Express down to Penn Station, how would it work from there? Change at New Haven or at Penn Station? It's about 3- 1/2 hours on Acela to NY from Boston if I recall. Nice smooth ride.
Folks in Seattle have voted numerous times for bonds, taxes, etc to build monorail. Each time the democrats redirect the money to buses and fast lane construction. Finally, got some little cutesy wootsie sightseeing train from airport to downtown hotels. Of course it goes through the low income African/American neighborhood, but God forbid they should do what we asked them to do--build rapid transit from the northsouth and the east into the city. Nope--they ain't never gonna do that--want to know why? Because, the rich folks over on the other side(east) of the lake don't want to make it easy for the "lower classes" to get into their precious Bellevue. The irony is that the engineer who designed/built the BART for San Francisco back in the 1970's came from Seattle. Did a beautiful job: funded and built in less than approximately eight years. The dems are now gonna use our money to dig a tunnel ala Bost under the entire city of Seattle. This way they can take down the old freeway that blocked the views from all those high rise pricey apartments! yeah those damn ol elections are nothing but a suggestion!
