Greater NY Belongs to Big Blue

From today's WSJ, a map showing the % of Giants fans vs. Jets fans in all the counties in Greater NYC. My only question is what's wrong with Staten Island? BTW, the map's expandable.

Enjoy - ( New Window )
I am surprised Westchester wasn't a higher percentage

I have always thought of Westchester County being the crown jewel of the tri-state area and most of the people I have met from there are classy Giants fans.

Not to mention the Mara family stronghold throughout the county (some of the Tisch contingent resides in Westchester as well).

I thought Long Island was slightly in favor of the Jets.
even Long Island has turned on the Jets? hahahaha

Long Island and Staten Island are still Jet leans.
thought it said 51% Giants for Nassau County

The results weren't pretty for New York's junior NFL chapter

The Giants won every county, as shown in the map below—including all of the Connecticut and New Jersey ones by 2-to-1 margins or more.

This means the Jets may be the only NFL team that doesn't own a single county nationwide.

Don't worry though, Jets fans. Rex has vowed that the Jetsies are going to be the best football team in NY for the next 10 years. No word on what that 10 year time period starts, however.
*what = when

This actually understates the Giants support IMO  
dpinzow : 8/23/2013 6:51 pm : link
because it uses Facebook clicks on the home team page to gauge support. Facebook users are generally younger than average. The largest demographic that doesn't use FB are the senior citizens, and they came of age when the Giants were the only team in town and really good (in the 40s and 50s)
I live in Staten Island

Lot of Loyal Giant fans, but many Jets also. I think its 50-50.
This survey shows the opposite

I see more giants bars than jets by the casual eye. But I know much more jets fans though and rarely pass by the southern part of the island with all the rich white folks
Wow, that Huffington Post piece couldn't be any

less detailed if it tried.
As a Nassau resident

I can say my group of friends and family includes more giant than jet fans

Probably because I'm such a good judge of character...
It is something even after all these years removed

from them playing in the Yale Bowl how New Haven leads the entire area by a sizable margin, including the Bronx where they had played for a much longer time and all the NJ counties, where they currently have now played in for years.
Not surprising...

In the past 27 years, the Giants have been to 5 Super Bowls & won 4 of them.

The Jets haven't won or been to a Super Bowl since Johnson was president.
since Johnson was president  
Dylan fan : 8/24/2013 7:18 am : link
That would be Andrew Johnson, correct? :)
Can somebody post the map image

I am on a mobile device and cannot get it on the article link.
These results do not surprise me  
hudson : 8/24/2013 10:04 am : link
The Jets base has always been LI. NJ, NYC, NY state had always been Giants.

CT has very few Jets fans, there are more Pats fans and in fact once you go past New Haven you run into those Sox Giants mixers.
Even in Bridgeport there are more Pats than Jets.
yeah i read that
