Across Queens, and social media, fans were all in shock as they celebrated Wednesday night after the Mets beat the Chicago Cubs, winning their way into the World Series — after 15 years.
The Mets, who earned their fifth National League championship last night, dominated over the Cubs four games in a row and ended Wednesday’s game with an 8-3 victory.
Fans crowded bars all through the “World’s Borough” to cheer for their home team.
Bourbon Street in Bayside was filled with fans dressed in their Mets gear cheering “Let’s go Mets” as they watched the game from the bar on the site’s brand-new rooftop lounge.
Once it was official that the beloved team had come out the champions, the Bayside bar filled with cheers, hugging and overall excitement.
The celebration roared through the rest of the borough as fans also celebrated at Donovan’s Pub of Woodside. The bar filled with high fives and the “Let’s go Mets” chant, and in one corner fans hugged and jumped in excitement.
Fans also gathered at The Avenue Bar And Grill in Glendale to watch the game and many jumped with joy as they watched the game unfold.
Now, having locked up the National League title, the Mets will play the American League champion in the World Series.
Citi Field in Flushing will then host its first World Series game on Friday, Oct. 30.
