Father's Day is just around the corner on Sunday, June 17th so its time to start thinking about planning a special day for him, or, perhaps, a special gift. Father's Day does not have to mean another tie to add to his collection of hundreds.

Getting there is easy – simply hop on the D/Q/N or F train to Stillwell Avenue.
Yankees Game – The Yankees are playing at home on June 17th against the Tampa Bay Rays. What says Father’s Day like watching one of America’s favorite sports with him? It is a 12:05pm game.
