The New York Mets have been playing ball in the city since 1964, but the team got a brand new Queens stadium in Citi Field in 2009, a year after their original Shea Stadium was shuttered and demolished next door.
The stadium honors a lot of baseball history with its own unique monuments. Outside stands a giant apple that was brought over from Shea and was once always hoisted into the air every time a Mets player hit a home run. A new, larger homerun apple sits inside Citi Field and serves the same purpose. There is also the Jackie Robinson Rotunda at the front entrance, which pays tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers player famous for being the very first African-American Major League Baseball player.
The Mets stadium can hold more than 45,000 fans and also includes a Mets Hall of Fame and museum, complete with the 1969 and 1986 World Series trophies and memorabilia from legendary Mets players over the years.
Citi Field is located in Queens and can be reached via the subway from the Mets-Willets Point station. Tours of Citi Field are available on selected days and times, and while the museum is featured on the guided tour, it is only open on game days.
