Looks like I will be hitting the road for NY a little early. Looking like the first week of February. I'll have 45 days of initial training where the wife and kiddo can come be with me and we can start scouting a new house/townhouse to rent.

wish us luck!

What part of NY are you in? I live in Westchester and work in midtown, west side.

When I lived in Jersey up until last summer I've gone to a lot of games when the boys came to Jersey and its usually pretty quiet. I've never really been heckled or had any issues with the people/crowd. I always cheer for my team and goals, no problems. I usually sat in the Balcony FWIW.

It's nothing like Philly, or NY...Always pretty quiet. Maybe one or two people will make some friendly heckles if the Devils win but I've never had problems there or been harassed.

Last game I caught there was when Nordiques Nation came there...One of the last games of the year last year I think.

Just wondering if you know anyone else or if you had any open seats going down to the 3/31 game. Tickets are wicked cheap and I've never been to a game there. If you know anyone going down with room in their car for 2 I'd be happy to split gas..

How much does it cost public trans to get down there?

nordique nation was fantastic. it was the most meaningless game, and the bruins lost, but it still ended up being one of the most fun reg season game i went to because of those crazy quebecois.

Newbie to HF boards (long time lurker, new joiner)- though I live in the Central NY area, not the NYC area. But it counts I guess, right?

Really just wanted to say hi, fellow Bruins fans!

Me and the usual crew are just getting the ball rolling on planning this years trip. I'll send you a message once we figure out the transportation issue and if we have seats left over. I'm not sure about taking public transit at all. Better off talking to someone from the LI area or who has made the trip via public transit before.

really like the Liverpool, NY area. really nice shopping centers, restaurants, etc.. and perfect location by the major highways it seems. So you have everything within a couple miles of the actual suburbs. Not to mention is a good ways from the actual city of syracuse so its not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. taking a look at a couple houses there so we will see. looking like we will make the big move some time in march.

Welcome to the 'Cuse, Waltah! Highways really help cut the travel time, here (barring construction season and excessive snow). We are blessed with excellant traffic conditions (mostly) and great restaurants, here.
I, myself and SE of the city, but I know a lot of people who live up in the area (including my boss, also a Bruins fan), and they seem to like it very much for the same reasons you described.

Happy house hunting!

There really are not many B's fan in the NY area.
This isn't the Red Sox or Celtics who have a national following.
The B's are much more niche. Also, NY is a diehard Ranger town, diehard, they sell out 180 games in a row with a medicore team that Boston 02-04 would have ignored and whinned about.

There are many more Rangers fans in BOS than vice verca; and many more Sox and Celtics fans in NY than Broons.
Just the facts.

Not sure where these became facts over just your opinion...

Maybe some of the younger fans (born in 1985 - 1990) became Ranger fans because they jumped on the 1994 bandwagon...but the Rangers have been a lesson in futility for 54 years prior.

The B's (being one of the original 6 - like the Rangers) had a far bigger and better reputation from the late - 1960's - 1980's...with Cup appearances in 1990 too. They also had one of the greatest players in the game on their roster.

The Rangers sell out because of corporate seats...sure, they have a die-hard following but they are the niche sport in NY (behind Football, Baseball and even basketball). That's not even close...and being from the Bronx (with family still there, no one is talking about the Rangers...even with their impressive run)....those are my facts.
