Hundreds of Yankee fans arrived in The Bronx in style—not in a private limo but in a special vintage IRT subway train that pulled in at 12:15PM at 161st Street/Yankee Stadium on the uptown 4 platform.
The die-hard Yankee fans were able to board the special “Lo-V” train at Grand Central Station in Manhattan and were whisked away up north to The Bronx on a model that ran for more than 5 decades along the IRT line into the late 1960s , according to the MTA’s website.
New York City’s FC held their first Major League Soccer match at Yankee Stadium yesterday — and won against Boston’s New England Revolution team. According to estimates, over 40,000 fans came out to this first historic day — something they will hopefully be doing for the next 3 years as soccer and baseball will share a home at Yankee Stadium.
Yankee fans came out today to bear witness for an historic moment – Derek Jeter’s last opening day at the stadium and the beginning of the end of his almost 20 year career.
Jeter began playing for the Bronx Bombers in 1995 and since his debut, he’s been a one of the most popular players ever.
If you’ve been following coverage on the backroom deals being made to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars for a proposed Major League Soccer Stadium in the Bronx then commentary from the Independent Budget Office should come as no surprise.

What do you guys think?
