They do that for marketing purposes to ensure revenue, but I assure you that 97% of the attendees at MSG, Citi Bank, and Yankees Stadium are residents of NYC.
Anyways, how does that argument take away the fact that NYC is a metro?
or do u mean revenue...
The average NYC person never been to the Empire State building or Statue of Liberty. In another city sporting events like those would be a big form of family entertainment. In NYC it's luxury...I have many discussion with Whites, who complained about how it's expensive to go to game with the family. Even when they got free tickets, the concession/parking/souvenir still run them a few hundred bucks.
