Mets Announce “Sensory Nook” at Citi Field for Neurodivergent Fans

The New York Mets organization is focused on improving inclusivity at Citi Field as it announced Sensory Nook designed to help those with autism, ADHD, and dyslexia cope with overstimulation resulting from the excitement of the game.

Sensory Nook was installed in the concourse of Citi Field and is free to use by any guest who needs to take a break from the action. It was created with neurodiversity in mind and provides a calming environment for those with social and emotional challenges.

Sensory Nook is an iteration of Nook, a mobile pod designed for the office to foster an emotionally intelligent workspace for one-on-one and small group tasks. Nook can positively affect mood, reduce challenging behavior, and lower anxiety.

“We take a lot of pride in offering a safe place for all of our fans at Citi Field,” Mets President Sandy Alderson said in a statement. “We are thrilled to include this service and that the Sensory Nook will provide an opportunity for those who wish to use it.”
