Mets vs Yankees or Phillies?

Which one would be a better game as far as atmosphere and rivalry goes? I've only ever seen one ballgame and that was the Bluejays in Toronto (can't remember who they played) many years ago. It was a great atmosphere.

I agree that Mets vs. Phillies is a better rivalry, a true division rivalry. I also prefer the airy ballpark feel of Citi Field to the stadium feel of Yankee Stadium. And I prefer the food options at Citi Field. But that's my personal preference. All of the games will be well-attended.

My wife is a Mets fan; I'm a Yankees fan. We don't watch those games and the 'winner' tries not to gloat. :)

Keep in mind Mets & Yankees are both Local Teams...so it can't get more New York than that.

Also, Mets def has better food options...but Yankees food options are not bad either.

For eating I was thinking I'd have an early dinner and go to Arthur Ave if it was Yankee Stadium, or Astoria or Flushing if it was Citi Field. Maybe the food at the ball parks are an OK alternative?
