NYC Skins Fans?
 
Recently moved to NYC (Manhattan) and looking to find some other Skins fans. I also heard that it can be hard to find a sports bar showing anything other than Jets/Giants games, so any advice on where to go to see the Skins would be great. Can't get Direct TV in my apt.

Skins games in NYC??
 
I'm in the same boat I just moved to Park Slope(Brooklyn) from Foggy Bottom. :frusty:

I think preseason games might be difficult, but you should find some friendly faces during the season.

Good Luck..! I live in CT & I ordered Direct TV so I could watch all my Skins games w/o the b/s Giants, Jets, & Pats screwing.

yyooo. yeah, there's no "DC crowd" bar that i've found living here for 8 years, so i just find a sports bar with all the games. I go to Croxley's Ale on Ave. B and 3rd. good food, 20 wings. <---

beware this one Eagle fan tho, he's like a bad Saturday Night Live skit.

My suggestion: Choose a bar and make it your own.

The sports bar at the Sheraton New York on 7th Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Streets in midtown Manhattan shows all NFL games. I watched two Redskins games there last season.

Hey NYC Skins fans. I just moved to the D.C. area after spending 4 years up in NYC. Every Sunday I went to the Park Avenue Country Club on Park Ave. & 25 st. They have big screens showing every single game. Its really nice place, and most importantly, it is cheap. You can either make reservations to save a table for you and some buddies, or you can just head to the bar and watch the game from there. There is a clear view of every game from the bar. Have fun!

I've lived in NYC for years--I live in Brooklyn now. The place to watch games in Park Slope is 200 Fifth Ave, just off of Union Street. They have a ton of TVs, a great atmosphere, and a good group of skins fans that shows up every game. There are contingents from lots of teams--we need all the support we can get!

STPainmaker--I definetly recomend checking it out before heading in to Manhattan. The Brooklyn vibe is better, and it sounds like the place is near you.

I'll be going to the games there, though not until game 3--I'll be at the first game, and the second is a Monday night. Lots of skins fans will be there, though.

RiggosRangers--if you can't find a place in Manhattan, you might want to check out Brooklyn as well! Take the R train to Union Street and walk up to 5th Ave.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I have a few places to check out--Sounds like Brooklyn is a good spot so I'll have to make it out there a few times this season.

I'm on the UES, 85th St. off of 2nd Ave.

Check this out: there may be a dedicated skins bar in NYC on Lafayette ave and Spring st. [URL=http://www.extremeskins.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1571953#post1571953]link[/URL]

If this is for real, I'll come in from Bklyn for it. If there is a bar willing to cater to skins fans in NYC (and there are lots of us!), we should rally around it and make it profitable for the bar--and to make it the a serious outpost of DC in NYC. :food-smil
