Die-hard football fans have to think outside the box to get the party started in the Big Apple.

Being a football fan in New York City is a unique experience, especially when it comes to tailgating. Between the towering skyscrapers, the constant hustle and bustle, and the reliance on public transportation over traditional cars and trucks, die-hard fans often have to think outside the box to get the party started in the Big Apple.


TAXI CAB CONCESSIONS

The biggest hurdle when it comes to tailgating in New York is that most people don’t own a car, truck, or anything else with an actual tailgate. But what we DO have is cabs a-plenty. It gets a little expensive leaving the meter running all day, but just toss the driver a hot dog and he’ll switch it off during halftime.

THE WOLFPACK OF WALL STREET

Time is money in NYC, and there’s no better way to multitask than by showing your team spirit in the middle of a big business deal.

DISCREET STREET MEAT

Tailgating is nothing without a grill, but it’s not always easy to light a barbecue in your tiny 12th floor walk-up. Fortunately, New York’s many street vendors can offer you cheap boiled dogs that are great for grilling up on the sly.

NEXT STOP: CORNHOLE

Nothing gets a tailgate started like a friendly game of Cornhole, but in NYC, space is limited. Open lots and yards are few and far between, but long, narrow subway cars are plentiful. Simply swipe your Metro card and you’ll be tossin’ bags in no time - and hey, built in audience!

ART-CORE FANS

If you can’t make it to the big game, don’t worry! Grab some buds and go cheer on your favorite abstract expressionist painter at one of New York’s many fine art museums.
