The new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009, pays more tribute to the original 1923 design than it should. The entrance turnstile and touch-appliances in the restrooms are far from modern day technology, and the lack of hygiene and sanitation shown by the vendors and concessions place this once iconic field in the UFE “Worst of the Worst” category.
While the restrooms do offer automatic faucets, their close proximity to the basin makes hand-washing awkward and inconvenient. The soup dispenser and paper towel dispenser both required manual operation, which UFE frowns upon. There was some question that the restrooms fixtures looked like they were salvaged from the Old Yankee Stadium or possibly brought over from Shea Stadium. Maybe that is why the male Yankee fans run out of the restroom before they do there paperwork. The bathroom occupants seem disinclined to use them , anyway, with only 44% of males actually washing their hands. The females, as usual, fare better than the males, with 94% successfully washing their hands.
