I am sure that most Long Islanders would know the difference from Old Montreal and Mount Royal

Brooklyn is geographically part of Long Island as it sits on the south west portion of the Island.

It is one of the five boroughs that make up New York city.

The Bronx (where the Yankees play) is North of Manhattan.

Brooklyn (really a city within a city) was once home to the Brooklyn Dodgers and a rival of the NY Yankees, so traditionally Brooklyn would be considered NY Mets territory.

So they are close to being at the opposite ends of New York City.

BTW IMO you guys have the best jersey (sweater) in all of sports.
