    I assume you mean Yankee Stadium, although you don't specify a city.

    I don't think there's a kosher deli near the stadium, but there's a kosher stand inside it. Their website is here: http://www.striklykosher.com/stadium_...

      Thanks, Gila8,

      Yes of course I meant Yankee Stadium but growing up in the Bronx we always referred to it as "The Stadium". I was really asking about the stores on East 161st Street because I will be doing genealogical research at the Bronx County Courthouse in mid-October.

        Seeing as how there are 161st streets in other cities that have kosher populations and stadia, it's not an unreasonable question to ask which city.

          yea, but when one says "the Stadium" we kinda knew

      There used to be two kosher delis near the stadium. One closed many years ago. The other is still on 161 street but no longer kosher

        There's no kosher deli near the stadium for miles and miles...riverdale and some eateries across the river in washington heights is as close as it gets
