Ron Hunt just dropped off his car at Shea Field for tonight's Mets/Braves game. If you are driving out to the old ball game this year, take heed of the following:
- Commuter parking is up $1 to $4
- The Mets, who now run/own the lots have caught on a little. For a day game now, like tomorrow, no commuter parking unless you're in the lot by 3AM! Full load after that, $18.
- Had a good look at the Shea parking lot from the elevated #7. There is no home plate, bases or diamond yet. They are still working on removing the rubble and just starting on the asphalt behind that blue fence.
I have not yet driven to a game (mass transit for me). Even though I have been warned, I will still punch my steering wheel the first time I am charged 18 clams to park for a game. Parking has now essentially become another ticket to the game.
