Boston, Detroit, and Chicago all have a great sports history. Even Philadelphia is among the very best ever. But in the end, no other sports city can compete with New York City’s championship resume. Boston is second to New York (as usual) when it comes to all time professional titles with less than 40. There have been 57 championship teams in NY metropolitan history.
Let’s view all 57 titles by sports league.
MLB- 35 Championships
Easily the No. 1 sport for NYC. The Yankees alone have 27 World Series titles, by far the most of any Major League Baseball team. The pinstripes also get help from three other baseball teams as well though. The Mets add two more championships, the old New York Giants won five championships, and the Brooklyn Dodgers won one championship in 1955. Unfortunately for the Yankees, that ’55 title came against them. 
NHL- 11 Championships
Hockey history is very underrated when it come to New York. It’s championship success very spread out among three different franchises. The New Rangers have won four Stanley Cups, most recently in 1994. After that, Newark, New Jersey lends it’s helping hand with three more Stanley Cups, from the New Jersey Devils. And who can forget about the New York Islanders? The Islanders won four Stanley Cups, in a row during the ’80s giving NY 11 total Stanley Cup victories. Let’s just say these three teams don’t really like each other.
NFL- 9 Championships
No shocker here, as NY has always been successful on the football field. Just like the Stanley Cup, NY teams have won multiple championships across the Hudson River. The New York Giants have won 8 NFL championships, four in East Rutherford and four in New York City. The Jets also contribute to an NFL Championship with a victory in Super Bowl III. Dating back to the 1950s, a New York team has won an NFL Championship at least once in every decade, except the 70’s. 
NBA- 2 Championships
Definitely the weak spot on New York sports history. The Knicks won two NBA Championships in 1970 and 1973 and New Yorkers have been waiting for a third title ever since. The Knicks would appear in two more NBA Finals in the ’90s, but Hakeem Olajuwon and Tim Duncan had other ideas. The Nets on the other hand never did win a championship while in New Jersey, losing two finals to the Spurs and Lakers. 
1. New York City alone has 46 championships.
2. NY Metropolitan surrounding areas of NYC have 11 championships. The Devils won three in Newark, the Giants have four in East Rutherford, and the Islanders have four in Uniondale.
3. Combined, the New York Metropolitan area has 57 pro championships.
