being a boston native, i think fenway is great. sure it has uncomfortable seats, obstructed views, and is about as clean as a dog after it's rolled around in the mud, but it is great. Its historic essence, city neigborhood location, and unique charming quirks make it the only authentic old time ballpark in the major leagues today. built in the 1930's fenway only seats around 33,000, making it the smallest ballpark in major league baseball today.
Even though fenway is dirty, old and run down, there is nothing as good as watching a game at fenway. The best part are the twilight games, when the lights have just turned on, and you can see the sun setting as it starts to get darker, and only the field is illuminated by the glow of 2000 huge clustered lamps towering above the field. My favorite seats, although i have sat in probably every section in the stadium (except luxury boxes, whitch i have only sat in 2) has to be the rooftop box seats, which are on the roof of the stadium. there are maybe 6 or 7 rows to a section, but the view is wonderful and i would suggest sitting there sometime if you get the chance, however field level seats are ok too.
fenway may not be as nice as parks like the ballpark in arlington, or as flashy as bank one ballpark, but it is a historical monument to old time baseball that every ball fan should come to visit at least once in their lives, to see how old fashioned baseball was really played, at what i call the only authentic old time ballpark in major league baseball.
