NYC Insider Tip – Avoid lines after the Game

Fill up your Metrocard, if it’s not Unlimited Ride, before you go to Arthur Ashe Stadium, or you’ll be waiting for hours trying to fill it at the subway after the matches.

Also, for a TRUE insider’s guide to getting US Open tickets, make sure to read this article by my friend, PJ Simmons, on the best seats and where to spend and save at: A Serious Tennis Fan’s Top 10 Tips for the US Open (Tickets & More).

U.S. Tennis Open Arthur Ashe Stadium Seating

During a day session, I highly recommend you consider a shaded section. It can be brutally hot and blinding during some sessions.

The shady sections at Ashe tend to be on the West and South sides since the sun starts on the South side (shining on the North side) and moves towards the West (shining on the East Side) of the stadium. Look at sections 301-328 (Upper Promenade) below and then move down for those looking for Lower Promenade, Loge or better seats.
