In the Neighborhood
Tucked away in the industrial landscape of Sunset Park, this authentic traditional Celtic watering hole features everything you could want in an Irish bar, from a down-to-earth vibe and décor, to authentic Irish staff who can pour a perfect Guinness, to a pool table, a fully stocked jukebox and regular theme and trivia nights.
Outdoors & Recreation
Bush Terminal Piers Park
After a decade in the works, this eight-block-long waterfront green space—formerly a shipping pier—is open to the public, with two multipurpose soccer and baseball fields, as well as a small nature preserve to help visitors enjoy the plants and animals indigenous to Sunset Park.
ReCaFo (Real Caribbean Food)
When Jamaican immigrant David Wisdom came to New York City in 2011, he noticed that authentic Jamaican and Caribbean food—like curry goat and oxtail platters, coconut rice and peas, or brown stew chicken—was typically only available in neighborhoods that already had heavy Jamaican populations.
New Spring Garden
In the crowded field of Sunset Park dim sum restaurants, New Spring Garden has made a name for itself with its attentive service and warm, family-friendly atmosphere—as well as its deft spins on traditional, classic dim sum favorites like shrimp har gow, steamed pork dumplings, braised chicken feet, beef rice rolls and congee.
This massive dim sum palace can sometimes have long waits on weekends, but it's worth pushing through the crowds to experience the steamer carts roaming the enormous dining room, delivering Chinese dishes—pork-stuffed rolls, snow skin durian, egg custards, chicken feet, tofu pudding, rice noodles, salt and pepper squid—directly to your table.
