  • Yankees v. Mets in NY neighborhoods

    This is kind of an ambitious project. It will take quite some time, but I'd like to do it.

    There are a lot of neighborhoods in New York City. I was trying to compile a list of which ones are predominately Yankee fan or Met fan centric. The list goes:

    Arrochar
    Bay Terrace
    Bloomfield
    Bulls Head
    Butler Manner

    Sunnyside (not to be confused with Sunnyside, Queens)
    Totd Hill
    Tompkinsville
    Tottenville
    Travis
    West Brighton
    Westerleigh
    Woodrow

    Manhattan
    Battery Park
    Carnegie Hill
    Chelsea
    Chinatown
    Civic Center
    Clinton
    East Harlem
    East Village
    Financial District
    Flatiron
    Grammercy
    Greenwich Village
    Hamilton Heights
    Harlem
    Inwood
    Lennox Hill
    Lincoln Center
    Little Italy
    Lower East Side
    Manhattan Valley
    Manhattanville
    Marble Hill*
    Midtown
    Midtown South
    Morningside Heights
    Murray Hill
    NoHo
    Roosevelt Island
    SoHo
    Spanish Harlem (this isn't listed by NYC as a registered neighborhood, but in common usage it is)
    Stuyvesant Town
    Sutton Place
    TriBeCa
    Tutor City
    Turtle Bay
    Upper East Side
    Upper West Side
    Washington Heights
    West Village
    Yorkville

    Outerboroughs to follow.

    * This area was the very northern tip of Manhattan up until sometime in the 1800's, when the Hudson river switched its course, and this seperated from Inwood. Technically speaking, it's still under Manhattan's jurisdiction, even though it's now physically in the Bronx.
    "Simply put, the passion, interest and tradition surrounding baseball in New York is unmatched."

    Generally speaking, i'd say Manhattan is mixed but leans Yankee, SI and the Bronx are heavily Yankee, and Queens and Brooklyn are heavily Met. It wouldn't surprise me if there were more Mets fans than Yankee fans in the city itself. I'd say the Yankees' advantage comes from Jersey, Long Island, and Connecticut.

      Those are my observations as well, except that I'd say that I've observed that Staten Island and Long Island are more evenly split, if not more towards Mets fans. From my observations, I'd say:

      Manhattan: Yankees
      Bronx: Yankees
      Brooklyn: Mets
      Queens: Mets
      Staten Island: Mets
      Long Island: Mets
      New Jersey: Yankees
      Up-State NY: Yankees
      Connecticut: Yankees

            Where in Long Island do you live? Or as the people who live there call it, "Lon-ngggggggg EYE-land".

            Since they don't have a baseball team, only a hockey team (the Islanders, of course), and since they're next to Queens (Suffolk County, anyway), I thought there would be more Mets fans.

            When I lived in Brooklyn, people--even friends of mine--would routinely ask me, "How could I be a Yankee fan here?"

            Little did I know that I'd lived a few blocks away from their former management office by Montague St and Cadman Plaza. I think that Court St began on the next block, and it was right near Brooklyn Federal Courthouse.

            Despite this being a Yankee-Mets thread, I have known a small number of Red Sox fans in my area, but I haven't obviously asked everyone I meet which baseball team they're a fan of. In Connecticut, which seems in the middle of the rivalry, I'd presume there are primarily Yankee and Red Sox fans, as some parts of CT are in New England and some aren't. The same Metro-North train which travels along Grand Central in Manhattan, Harlem and the Bronx, also travels to parts of Connecticut, so that may be a reason we have Yankee fans there.

              Not being rude but nobody calls in lon-ngggggggggggg eye-land we call it Loung EYELIN lol.

              I have lived in both suffolk and nassau and both are predominately yankee fans. Just observations from everyday life, and every school i have ever gone to has also been all yankee fans.

                It seems odd to think that parts of Connecticut could be considered not New England. But leaving that aside, former Commissioner and Yale President Bart Giamatti remarked that the historical dividing line between Yanks and Sox was New Haven.

                I myself grew up in CT as a Mets fan. It's a minority that shouldn't be overlooked.

                  I was just going to post that myself. New Haven is for sure the dividing line. South of New Haven is Yankees/New York Metro area, north of New Haven is Red Sox/New England area. Even New York City radio dies at New Haven. There is a short tunnel on the Merit Parkway just outside of New Haven. On the side closer to New York City, New York radio comes in pretty well, on the other side (which isn't very far), New York radio is virtually dead.
