About New York Sports

(New York, New York - NY, USA)

Visitors to New York can watch or play an enormous number of sports. Popular spectator sports include baseball, American football and basketball. The city's two top baseball teams, the Mets and the Yankees, both attract large and loyal followings and for many this city epitomises this great American sport. Getting to a ball game is certainly a highlight of any trip to the US.

Likewise, the city's two American football teams, the Jets and the Giants, attract similar crowds, while the New York Knicks is the city's biggest basketball team.

O'Shea stadium, home of the Mets, is one of the city's largest and often used for music concerts, but there are several others and they are attractions in themselves.

The New York Marathon is one of the most prestigious public running events in the world, is held in the city every year, while the 'City That Never Sleeps' also has excellent facilities for many other sports including golf, horse racing, ice hockey and athletics.

Flushing Meadows, in the Queens' District, is the venue for the annual US Tennis Open and many other events are held here throughout the summer.

Horse racing fans can catch a meeting at either Aquaduct Racetrack, Queens, or New Belmont Park, where there is usually a event once a week throughout the season.
