$25 and under gift No. 20: New York Aviators tickets

New York Aviators hockey

The New York Aviators at Floyd Bennett Field

The future site of pro basketball in Brooklyn is still largely a gaping pit, and the Cyclones still have many long, cold months before first pitch. But if you still haven’t found the stocking-stuffer for the sports fan on your list, you don’t have to shell out triple digits to see the Rangers: Tickets for the fledgling New York Aviators minor league hockey team are just $12 each (or $17  for VIP). The team plays in the Federal league, the hockey equivalent to Class A baseball, and it recently received attention in the New York Times as an official rung on the ladder to the NHL.
