Train to the Game

 

 

 

In New York City, you can take the subway to see the Yankees and the Mets, and Penn Station is right underneath Madison Square Garden, home of the Knicks and the Rangers. In Philadelphia, you can ride the Broad Street Subway to get to Phillies, Eagles, 76ers and Flyers games.

And in Seattle, Wash., if you're heading into town for the Mariners, Sounders or Seahawks, what's easier than taking Amtrak or Sound Transit? In this May 25, 2002 photo, "Cascades" #506 from Portland is on its approach to the platforms at King Street Station while a "Sounder" regional train lays over. Both are in the shadow of the then soon-to-open Qwest field, home of the NFL Seahawks, while in the far distance the Mariners' Safeco Field rises above the BNSF main.

From 1976 to 2000, this view would have included the famed Kingdome. In March 2000, the old stadium was razed in a spectacular implosion to make room for the new Seahawks stadium.

Does your city have rail or transit links to where your professional sports teams play?
