MLB All-Star Game: Outside the park, a slice of Italy, a touch of Tibet and a chance to surf
Citi Field takes the spotlight Tuesday night when the New York Mets host the MLB All-Star Game for the first time since 1964.

New York City's tourism agency has a handy online Neighborhood X Neighborhood guide to the area. Here are some of the recommended sites. Play ball!

Citi Field opened in 2009 as a replacement for Shea Stadium, the longtime home of the Mets. You can take one of the Citi Field Tours to see the clubhouse, field and dugout, press box and more for $13 (adults) and $9 (children).
