34th Street


District Blueshirts Fans Show the Love

Herald Square first to host RANGERSTOWN sign.

New York Rangers

With their team playing in the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 20 years, New York Ranger fans are feeling pretty good these days. The Rangers are the 34th Street District’s very own team, so no fans have enjoyed the playoff run more than those who live and work here.

Those fans had a great opportunity to show their love when they came across the gigantic RANGERSTOWN sign at Herald Square a couple weeks back. The sign stretched 55 feet, with each letter standing six feet high, 13 inches deep, and weighing 100 lbs. Fans posed by the sign while friends took photos to be sent to social media outlets with the hashtag #Rangerstown and @nyrangers on Twitter and Instagram. After a five-day run at Herald Square, the sign moved on to other locations in the city.

On Wednesday, June 4, the legendary RANGERSTOWN letters made their way to Bryant Park as part of the New York Rangers Viewing Party and Fan Fest for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Read MidCity News next week for a recap of the exciting event.
