The new Yankees-E. 153rd St. Metro-North stop is set to open early and on budget, according to the MTA.
Benjamin Kabak explained on his blog, at Second Ave. Sagas, the station, serving Yankee Stadium with extra trains on game days and the South Bronx at all times, will open on May 23 when the Yankees take on the World Series Champion Phillies at the Stadium. Metro-North anticipates around 10,000 fans per game through the station.
My brother, Trevor indicated his concerns with Metro-North’s ability to serve 10,000 people on game day. See his post about how the numbers can go crazy.
