The D train does not stop at Times Square.

From Times Square you would need to walk one block east to 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue where you would get the D going uptown (that is, north) to Yankee Stadium.

From Yankee Stadium you would take the D going downtown (that is, south) to Manhattan, and would get off at 42nd Street.

Subway lines are not monodirectional; like highways, they go both ways.

Note that from Times Square (assuming you really are starting at Times Square) an alternative is to take the S shuttle over to Grand Central, and then the uptown #4 train to Yankee Stadium.

And yes, you can take the downtown #4 back.

Thanks. It is one of those situations that once we do it we'll be fine....it's just not being 100% sure.

It would help to know where you are staying.

Many of the hotels in Times Square are actually a little further up at like 51st Street. The old Sheraton Manhattan is now called "The Manhattan at Times Square" or something. It is actually at 51st and 7th. The D train stops at 7th Avenue station at 53rd Street. It would be foolish to walk from 51st Street and 7th Avenue to 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue only to get the train which will stop right by your hotel two stops later.

Coming back is very easy. Simply board a Manhattan bound D train or a Manhattan bound 4 train to Grand Central. Follow the crowds.

I am familiar with that Sheraton you mentioned. Various bus trips have left us off and picked us up at that very spot.

The D train's Rockefeller Center station has entrances along Sixth Avenue between 47th and 50th Streets. It is called 47-50th Streets / Rockefeller Center. You may not even need to cross any streets. Simply get yourself to Sixth Avenue.

You ought to consider staying overnight sometime. You really need to stay to fully experience New York City. Enjoy a relaxing evening with dinner, go out for dessert afterwards, check out Greenwich Village in the evening, much different than just coming for the day.

Rockefeller center it is then.

We have stayed overnight and loved it. We are about 3 1/2 hours away so have done both multiple day bus trips and several times driven in to the city. Quite a few trips to Yankee games but never come by bus and dropped off at Times Square. A first time for everything! Coming with husband who has never ridden subway before......wish me luck!

I'm not sure you'll need much luck.

Swipe your MetroCard and off you go. The train does all the heavy lifting / exercise. You and your husband can sit down and enjoy the ride.

Remember to board a 205th Street / Uptown and Bronx bound D train at Rockefeller Center. Board a Coney Island (Downtown and Brooklyn) bound D train at Yankee Stadium. The B train stops at Yankee Stadium during rush hour.
