There is absolutely nothing to do in the neighborhood by Citifield but most mets fans take the 7 train in from Manhattan. You go from Midtown Manhattan to Citifield in a matter of minutes. A casino would have made more sense but the pro sports leagues are terrified of gambling being associated.
Really there's not a whole lot to do by Yankee stadium either unless you want to buy a $9 beer at Stan's or visit a 99 cent store. Ditto for Metlife stadium the closest thing of note is Stilletos and you need a car to get there. Only sporting venue in NY that is in a happening area is MSG (haven't been to Barclays yet).
