The Ranger

The Ranger is the vigilant protector of Manhattan.  He never sleeps, and therefore is a regular in Manhattan's late night scene, although you're much more likely to find him in a neighborhood joint than at a trendy nightclub.  His personality is as big as the city he protects, but like most New Yorkers there is humility to his bravado. There's a multi-cultural feel to him that's directly related to the many different nationalities that inhabit the world's most populated island.

As New York City is the nation's largest melting pot, the Ranger is one of the most diverse Guardians in his interests.  He loves meeting people from other parts of the world and loves spending time in other iconic cities across the globe, but it's never long before "the city that never sleeps" calls him back home.
Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.

— Islanders Hall of Fame defenseman Denis Potvin on former coach Al Arbour, who passed away Friday at the age of 82
