Safety on Subway to Manhattan after Tues Night Yankees Game?I will be a returning visitor to New York, attending a weeknight game at Yankee Stadium this Summer and staying in Manhattan. Since the game will probably end in the 10:30-11:30PM time frame, I'm wondering what the D subway train will be like RETURNING to Manhattan after the game on a nondescript, say, Tuesday night.
I ask because -- although I've been to NY numerous times -- I still have an unfortunate remembrance of once in the late 90s visiting the Cloisters with my wife using the subway. An African-American gentleman was on our subway car through Harlem ranting about how much he hated, and wanted to kill all whites. The vibe in the car was obviously very bad and we were concerned for our safety.
That being said, do you think that was just an anomaly and we'll have plenty of company from tourists and locals returning to Manhattan at 11pm, or will it still be dicey to come through Harlem on the D Train that time of night? Thank you kindly.

He does that on the train after every game, just to scare the tourists.
You'll be taking the train with what, a few thousand other people. I think you'll be fine. If you're still scared you can always sell your tickets.

8One way to help insure your safety is to avoid making generalizations about which team is the most respected or whatever. While the Yankees may be the best team money can buy, that does not translate into respect for many baseball fans (just ask anyone in Boston).

9Maybe "respected" is the wrong choice of words in this context. What I meant is the new york yankees is (one of) the most famous baseball teams (at least from my point of view) which everybody recognizes.
For me, and I think for many more people around the world, the name New York Yankees is the equivalent of the names of (for example) Real Madrid or Manchester United. The first name I think of when someone asks me to say the name of a MLB baseball club, is the NYY. In my opinion many others would say names like Real Madrid or Man United when you ask them to name a football (soccer) club.
So once again, I think the choice of words was somewhat unlucky. I did not mean to hurt anyones club-feelings or to disrespect a single other team playing on of the worlds largest sports.
