    Only positive from tonight was that the ramp on 153rd Street going to the Southbound Deegan was open for the first time since 2015. It is by far the best option and cuts 5-15 minutes off my trip home. The reopening is so new that Waze was confused and had no idea where I was going.

    On behalf of all NYCFC/Yankee fans I'd like to thank you for your trailblazing. You've shown Waze the way, so henceforth all may follow in your footsteps. Or tire tracks, as the case may be.

    Note: I may only have posted this so I could get away with using the word henceforth on the forum. Maybe.

    Yeah, Waze did figure it out when I was maybe 2/3 of the way along the ramp (it's a very long, twisty ramp) so I figure the algorithm that switches a road from closed to open kicked in and it should show up for future trips.

    Gotham GatorGotham Gator I went to park in the lot we have been discussing, "Ali's Lot" as it is known on google maps. Unfortunately it was closed yesterday, as there were a ton of what looked like new cars in the lot. Just figured I would warn you, not sure if a car dealership has bought out the lot, only uses it on certain days, or there was a special event for something going on. Since it was a weeknight, anything is possible in regards to the lot being opened or closed. Just thought I would let you know if you do decide to drive down to the lot on Saturday.

    I will not be in attendance on Saturday, so if anyone does decide to try to use the lot, let me know if it is open.

    Has anyone tried Ali's lot this season? Taking the whole family down today so we're probably driving all the way in.

    Saw this a bit late. I’ve used it a couple of times. It’s a good spot. Definitely rough around the edges and a longer walk, but also $10 cheaper and easy in/out.

    Thanks.. I ended up parking across the street at the mall using Parkwhiz which made it even cheaper that that ($20).

    Parked in Ali’s lot on Saturday. Looks like it may have been purchased by one of the big parking companies as there was new signage and a different person taking money who handed out receipts.

    More importantly, the price is now up to $30. That’s still less than the $42 that the official Yankee garages charge, but it is all getting ridiculous.

    What's street parking like in the area? Like if I drive in early enough, are there ever spots? Even if it's a few blocks away.

    When I did post-game autographs a couple years ago (City Sendoff), there were plenty of spaces over by the Courthouse on Walton Ave. Had to park there since I might have been too late for the parking garages.
