New York MetsCiti Field Where do the New York Mets play baseball?Citi Field
Citi field is a ballpark located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, New York City and is the home of the New York Mets of Major League Baseball (MLB). The stadium was build as a replacement to Shea Stadium. Citi Field has a capacity of 41,922. It has over 15,000 fewer seats than Shea Stadium. All the seats in the park are green – in an homage to the Polo Grounds, longtime home of the baseball Giants and the original home of the Mets – as opposed to Shea's orange, blue, red and green assortment. Citi Field's interior design is primarily influenced by PNC Park, which was the favorite ballpark of Mets COO Jeff Wilpon. Other influences include Great American Ball Park, Coors Field and Citizens Bank Park. Shea Stadium was the only ballpark in the Major Leagues to feature orange foul poles instead of the standard yellow, a unique characteristic that made its way into Citi Field.
