NEW YORK, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
The end of spring in New York City marks the start of the Subway Series, which is known to invoke increased yelling from excited fans and may even result in a bit of yelling among couples as they root for their favorite rival team; the NY Yankees or the Mets. All in hopes that the favorite team will take their division all the way to the World Series.
The Subway Series, which is just a fancy name for the sequence of rivalry games played between New York's own Major League Baseball teams the Yankees and the Mets, got its name from the fact that the venues for these games can be accessed by way of the New York City Subway.
However, the name also once applied to the series of games played between the Dodgers and the Giants when they were based in New York City and has also historically been applied to the World Series games played between New York City's teams.
Great food has always been a part of the Series and has even sparked many game day food traditions from the Shake Shack Burger at Citi Field to the Grand Slam Milkshake at Yankee Stadium as well as various other game day favorites offered by local area restaurants, many of which can even be accessed via your TopView Sightseeing tour, or simply try the following tasty recipes from the Yankees and the Mets at home, for a touch of game day pride wherever you're at.
