Large, outdoor space with food, drinks (including beer and wine), and games. Plenty of seating, room to run around, pet-friendly. More of a daytime spot, closes by midnight most days, open until 2am Friday and Saturday. Close to the L train at Halsey St. Keep up with their instagram @nowadaysnyc ...they'll keep you informed on early closing/rainy day alerts!
Known for being more family-oriented and homey, this lovely little neighborhood is conveniently situated right by Bushwick and East Williamsburg. With low-rise apartment buildings, multi-family homes, and townhouses, it’s easy to see why more and more people are moving to the more affordable Ridgewood. Check out one of the many Polish and Mexican eateries, browse the eclectic selection at Deep Cuts Record Store, shop at the bustling Ridgewood Market, or find your next must-read at Cozy Topos Bookstore.
