I had the pleasure of attending the US Open in Queens for the first time this year. Although it was a rainy day and the match was cancelled during the end of the first set, I had a great time and got to see the beginning of Andy Roddick’s last professional match before he retired!
The stadium is very easy to get to from the 7 train and I loved seeing the NYC park symbols everywhere.
They don’t allow you to bring large bags or luggage, but had places to check them before entering the stadium.
I was surprised at the amount of options for food. Not only were there burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, etc…there was indian, bbq, health, and other various food options. All very expensive though. AMEX was a sponsor and because I have an AMEX card, I was able to save a bunch of money on food/drinks!
Arther Ashe stadium is large, but I don’t think there’s a bad seat in that place. Sure, you can spend a lot more money to be very close to the players, but it’s just as easy to see from the top as it is on the bottom.
I’m excited to be able to go again next year! (We were able to get refunds for our tickets for the same night next year)
