  • The Top of the Mountain

    Situated between New York and Boston as we are, Newtown has long had some hotly contested Yankees vs Red Sox rivalries. Mets fans have been happy to let those MLB fans argue over whose team is better (Boston, of course), but now it looks like this town may have a new team to cheer for.
