Despite its status as an urban center, New York City is a great place to spend time outdoors. Well-designed, well-maintained, and accessible parks and public spaces make it possible to get out and enjoy sports. The Hudson River, the East River, and Long Island Sound provide New Yorkers with a wealth of water activities from boating and sailing to fishing in the warmer months. New York is a great town for sports fans. There are two major league baseball teams, the Yankees and the Mets, as well as professional football, basketball, tennis, hockey, and soccer.
