New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractionsâ€”and enough personalityâ€”to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
The name of this tavern is entirely appropriate: It's not much bigger than the size of a freight-train boxcar, which makes for rubbing shoulders with some interesting East Village types. Expect beer, sangria and memorable conversation (so long as the booze is doing its job, anyway). Known for its raucous two-for-one happy hour, most patrons arrive early, drink a lot and stay late.
