Here at CitySights New York, we like things that are cool. We also like things in New York. So cool things in New York.. They’re the best.
More importantly, our goal is to show you how cool New York really is, whether it’s while riding on one of our famous bus tours, or while reading about it on our blog. That is why every Friday we bring you ‘What’s Cool’, where we will tell you, well, you guessed it: something that’s pretty cool in New York City. Get ready for the weekend because here’s what’s cool:
If you follow the blog regularly, you probably know that I’m a bigger sports fan than most. That being said, the Subway Series this weekend between the Yankees and the Mets has nothing to do with sports. It’s not about what 3 games in June will do to the standings, because that really doesn’t matter much. No, these three games are about New York City and Pride.
It’s the Bronx vs Queens, tradition vs new and hip; it’s a city split into two and you have to pick a side. The Yankees come into this series with a big advantage: they have already beaten the Mets three times and are in first place. But like I said, this isn’t about standings. If the Mets can sweep the Yankees this weekend, bragging rights will shift to Flushing. At least until October comes around.
So find yourself a nice seat at the bar or hop on the 7 train to see it in person, but don’t try to avoid it if you’re not a fan. The war of words has already started and this weekend we’ll see who wins the headlines. It’s the Subway Series and it’s going to be a blast!
