NFT: Visiting from the UK

Prince of Wales : 7/9/2019 2:51 pm
Hello Giants!

My partner and I are visiting NYC from the UK in December which coincides with the Dolphins game.

Looking at tickets from Ticketmaster for about $200 each (inc fees) for section 220A. Unless anyone could suggest a better alternative?

How cold will it be?

How easy is it to travel to the Metlife from Manhattan?

Many thanks

Glad to know his royal highness and future King of England is a Giants fan.
Not a true vet of these things but here's my go at it ...

Price doesn't sound completely out of whack. Hard to say on temp. Average daytime temp in Rutherford in December is 44, so if you're fortunate, you could get a balmy 50 and sun, or a crapola 30 and freezing rain. I've sat in both in mid-December. Travel is easy. Several options, which others will have specifics on.

Enjoy!

Oh. And uh ... how was Diana?
December in Giants Stadium is freezing.

In NYC too - winds whip through the streets in winter, there isn't a lot of direct sun just like any city, blocked by tall buildings. I always felt lower Manhattan was worse, just crazy winds.

For the Giant game, dress in layers. Being on the SHADY side of the stadium that time of year matters. Pay attention to forecast - wind can be brutal in December too.

Trick I learned long ago is to bring some Styrofoam packaging to put my feet on. The concrete of the stadium gets through the thickest boots and thermal socks.

And if you feel cold, imagine how the MIAMI players feel. :D

Good tip! ... but go analog: a newspaper works as well as styrofoam; there has to be some part of the Sunday Times you won't need.
