I’ve already received one email about this, and I’m sure there will be more.
The Daily News is reporting that the company that controls the parking situation around Yankee Stadium is planning to jack up prices yet again next season, this time from $23 to $35. Valet will go from $36 to $45. This is the same group that ramped up to $40 for this year’s playoffs games.
The whole thing is a debacle. Somehow, it seems, the city of New York forgot that people use the subway around here. The article says that only 60 percent of the stadium parking is used on a regular game day, and even when the Red Sox came to town in August, the lots were far below capacity.
The Yankees have no say in this matter. Bronx Parking Development is its own entity, and it’s hoping for some help from the city government. The situation is a mess, and of course the folks who drive to the game are literally paying the price.
