Yankee Stadium
Yankee Stadium opened for the Yankees' inaugural game on April 18, 1923 versus the Boston Red Sox. Later that season, the Stadium hosted the first of 33 World Series and the Yankees won their first World Championship over their former landlord, the Giants. As the Stadium became the stage for a staggering number of World titles - now totaling 26 - it also would become known as "The Home of Champions." The remodeled Yankee Stadium opened in April 1976 with the Yankees topping Minnesota 11-4 and, like its predecessor, would host the World Series in its inaugural season. The Stadium, in fact, hosted the Fall Classic in its first three seasons with the Yankees winning back-to-back World titles in 1977 & 1978. As one of the most-prestigious addresses, Yankee Stadium has also been the home of scores of other sports, entertainment & cultural events. While the Yankees were on the road or out of season, the Stadium opened its gates to college & pro football, soccer, concerts, political assemblies, religious conventions & even the circus.

The Wollman Rink
The Wollman Rink was a success from the day it opened in 1950. Over 300,000 skaters glided across the ice in its first year of operation. Today over 4,000 use the Rink daily. The skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan provide the spectacular backdrop for ice skaters. Wollman hosts skaters day and night. Wollman's easy access from Central Park South and its picturesque location make it popular not only for skaters, but also for any visitor who appreciates the romance of the New York City skyline.
