Transportation to and from Yankee Stadium & safety concerns.

Will be taking in a night baseball game at Yankee Stadium in September & would like to ask can i get there using the subway, & if so, which line do i use? & where do i catch it from?.

Can i use a metro card?, & would you consider it safe enough to take the return trip on the subway after the night game back into Manhattan?.

We will be staying on West 45th St nr Fifth Ave during our stay

You would use either the #4 or the D train. You can get the D on Sixth AVenue at 47th Street, and the #4 at Grand Central Terminal.

Not only can you use a metroCard, but you MUST use a MetroCard; the metroCard is the mandatory fare medium for the subway.

Why in the world would the subway not be safe coming back from a baseball game with 40,000 other spectators? Is there something about the subway at night -- when the little crime that there is on the subway to begin with goes down, not up -- that you know, and I don't?

After the baseball game, all the fans flock to the subway to go home. I really don't know why you're asking, but regardless of time that the game finishes, there are subway trains that are specifically put on starting at Yankee Stadium, for people to head back to Manhattan, Brooklyn, etc etc.

Last time I was there, I was standing on the subway until Grand Central Terminal because the train was THAT busy.

It would be much safer than the trip home from the SCG or ANZ stadium after a Swans game!

This is New York, not Sydney, so I think it would be safe to venture out after dark. :)

Parfaits

The reason i asked the question was that the last time i was in Manhattan, which was December 2010 i can vaguely remember there was a shooting on one of the subway stations, i heard this from some New Yorkers that were staying at the same hotel i was, so i thought the question was a reasonable one to ask the locals.

And if you have never been to Sydney, which i doubt you have, how would you know it would be safer catching the subway in NYC compared to Sydney?
