New York Giants

With a storied history that dates back to 1925, the New York Giants boast eight National Football League titles: four won in the pre-Super Bowl era (1927, 1934, 1938, 1956) and four since the advent of the Super Bowl—Super Bowls XXI (1986), XXV (1990), XLII (2007), and XLVI (2011). Only the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears have surpassed the Giants’ championship tally. While there is a 20-year waiting list for season tickets (135,000 people long!), you can still nab individual tickets for home games at the MetLife Stadium. Whether Eli Manning, Jason Pierre-Paul, Victor Cruz, Chris Snee and the rest of the “G-Men” are locked in a gridiron clash with arch rivals the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins or Dallas Cowboys, it’s a rush to sit in the stands and watch the drama unfold with 80,000 die-hard fans.

Their original team name said it—The Titan of New York. But in 1963 the Green and White adopted a more modest moniker—and one that has stuck for a half century. In 1968, a dazzling quarterback called Joe Namath led the team to their first and only championship victory against the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. And while they’ve battled their way to the playoffs 13 times and the AFC Championship four times, the Jets have never made it back to the SuperBowl. Of course, all of that can change in a New York minute!

And while the last few seasons have been tough, Orange and Blue fans are resilient optimists who have high hopes for a new generation of scrappy players who seem to have the right stuff. Catch the lineup during every home game at the open air Citi Field in Queens.

New York Yankees

The Bronx-based Yankees are the winningest sports franchise in American history. The Pinstripers have won 27 World Series titles that date back as far as the early 1920s. Over the years, some gifted athletes, larger-than-life personalities and true legends have filled out its illustrious roster. Old-school players like Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, Jo DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, and the “The Great Bambino,” Babe Ruth, have left an indelible mark on the history books and fans’ hearts. Today, a new generation of players with the “clutch gene” are carrying the torch. Players like 13-time All Star Derek Jeter—with five World Series rings, he’s been dubbed the new heart and soul of the Yankees. soul of the Yankees. And like fellow Bronx Bomber Mariano “Mo” Rivera, the on-fire closer who holds the MLB record for career saves. Rivera is a 13-time All Star with five World Series rings of his own. From April through October you can catch them at the new cathedral in the Bronx—Yankee Stadium.

The New York Knicks

Spike Lee, Woody Allen, Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg, and Ben Stiller are just a few of the famous faces who can be seen sitting center court at Madison Square Garden during Knicks games. The stars come out to see their heroes—another group of stars who propelled the Knicks to the NBA playoffs 38 times, and won eight conference titles and two NBA championships. Eleven-time All-Star Patrick Ewing, revered as the greatest Knick of all time, along with Walt “Clyde” Frazier, Willis “The Captain” Reed, Dave “The Hammer” DeBusschere, back-court superstar Earl “The Pearl” Monroe, score king Bernard King, and others, let it all out on the court against their formidable rivals. And while the newest generation of Knicks have struggled since the loss of Ewing, they seem to be getting their mojo back. Hot off their 2013 division title—the first in 19 years—the “King of New York,” Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, and J.R. Smith are driving the push back toward contender status.
