In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
Theres nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
These streets will make you feel brand new,
The lights will inspire you,
Lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Yup, 148 of the athletes on Heps rosters this academic year are from New York, three dozen more than No. 2 New Jersey. Another way to look at it, if you were to hit a golf ball into the nearly 1,000 Heps athletes, you’d have a one-in-six chance of hitting someone from the Empire State. And then you’d have a problem on your hands.

The single-most impressive performance by one of the many Heptagonal New Yorkers last year was the record-breaking sub-four mile turned in by Kyle Merber (Dix Hills) at the New York City Armory after the Heps Championship. Merber, who won the indoor 3k and the outdoor 1,500, was one of five Empire State champions in 2010. The others? Princeton’s Reilly Kiernan (Pelham), Dartmouth’s Connor Reilly (Niskayuna), Cornell’s Gary Jones (Webster) and Columbia’s Monique Roberts (Cicero).

Getting to know New York a bit more:

The folks in the City probably don’t even realize that the state touches two Great Lakes and two Canadian provinces, but it does. The invention of toilet paper? That came from Joseph Gayetty of New York City in 1857. Glad we weren’t around to see what they were doing before that. For every mile of subway track in New York, there are nearly 100 miles of rivers and streams. More than half of the households in New York City do not own a car. About 1 billion people around the globe will watch the ball drop in Times Square tonight.

    If I scanned correctly, there’s only one State outside of the top eight that has a student on ally eight of the Heps track and field rosters.

    Of course, that *had* to be true from #24 down–fewer than eight total kids from each of those–but I found it a little surprising that there are fourteen more “populous” States without complete Ivy representation.

    Yeah, I have a lot of time on my hands, too…
