Starting in 2015, NYC will have not one but two NHL teams.
Recently the New York Islanders announced that they will be abandoning Nassau County and heading to the new Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. Along with the Nets, it will be one of two major league sports teams located in the borough.
So here's the breakdown of sports in NYC (as of 2015)
Yankees in the Bronx.
Rangers and Knicks in Manhattan.
Mets in Queens.
Nets and Islanders in Brooklyn.
Jets and Giants in New Jersey.
So now four of our five boroughs will have big time sports in them. That's pretty amazing.
Let's hope it helps the local economies.
