Kudos to the Sweet Afton, BOAST winner for Bar with Best Atmosphere, for being written up in the May 18 issue of the New Yorker in the Bar Tab section. Here’s the article. Their beers on draught are excellent (the Allegash White is especially tasty), as are their signature cocktails. If you feel like snacking, they are famous for their fried pickles and mac & cheese. They also have live Bluegrass/Folk/Jazz every Monday night at 9pm. You can find out more information on our HAPPENING page, and on their website as well.

An exhibition space rather than a collecting institution, MoMA PS1 devotes its energy and resources to displaying the most experimental art in the world, and supports innovation in contemporary art. Warm Up, a popular program on Saturdays in the summer, takes place in the courtyard where DJs spin and people dance for hours.
