Citi Field is nice and the seating is comfortable with a good view of the game. The food is okay, for the most part, but if this is your first trip to N.Y., all you need to know is a couple Nathan's hot dogs, a hot pretzel with extra mustard, and a beer or two. There are a large variety of beers available.
The biggest drawback to Citi Field is that there's nothing much going on around the stadium, although Brooklyn isn't far away (Junior's, the best cheesecake on the planet).
Yankee Stadium is a corporate environment, although the stadium itself is beautiful. The food and drink menu is too long to mention, but the same food guidelines apply if you haven't been to N.Y.
Some cool bars and pubs within walking distance to the ballpark.
If you've never been, Little Italy is a must, a gastronomic experience that must be felt to be believed.
The subway is the easiest (and cheapest) way to get around.
