For those Yankees fans who are coming to the games this weekend at Citizens Bank Park, be warned: Getting around is not going to be easy.
The area called the “sports complex” was already bustling as I walked out tonight, with the parking lots overflowing with people attending a Pearl Jam concert at the Spectrum. There’s another one there tomorrow (starting right around the same time as the baseball game) not to mention the Giants-Eagles on Sunday at the Linc (at 1 p.m.) and a hockey game (Flyers-Lightning) at Wachovia Center Monday at 5 p.m.
In short: Hello, traffic.
Add in the potential for a crippling transit strike which would shut down public transportation, and this weekend could be as much about gridlock as it is about baseball if you’re in town for the Series. For more details, check out this rundown of events and some tips on getting around.
