Well, for someone who hates to fly, I guess it's a viable option. It would certainly beat driving and having to pay for parking (which can run, easily, $20+ per day at hotels in and around the city).
As for me, personally, I'd rather spend the same amount on airfare and save the extra time it would take to get to the east coast.
Also, keep in mind that Amtrak can routinely run hours behind schedule. Since the train journey from California to Chicago (the one that goes through southern Iowa) takes a few days, any delays that they encounter along the way essentially accumulate by the time the train gets to Iowa. I've heard stories of people waiting in Osceola for 5 hours past when the train was supposed to arrive until it actually did. Just a heads up.
Yep. Laguardia, JFK, Newark or even White Plains are airports. White Plains is on the NY/ CT border but you can take the Metro train in from Whiteplains to Grand Central Station (GCS) in about 30 min. Yankee stadium is 4 stops from GCS.
