I’ve seen Citi Field from both sides now, from its formative stages during the tours to the finished model under the bright sun.
I walked around the place yesterday, and yes there are places where you can lose sight of the ball. But, when you have a park designed with numerous angles and quirks, that’s going to happen.
It’s not a big deal. It’s not like you have to look around a pole for nine innings. I didn’t try all the things to eat – I’m on a strict budget now, you know. But, I can appreciate the variety.
What I do like is the wide concourses, and the mall-like atmosphere in the outfield. It’s that way in Cleveland and Philly, and I think it would be nice to spend one afternoon milling around and soaking in the atmosphere.
How about you? Have you been to Citi Field and what’s your impression? What do you like? What don’t you like?
