Things move at a hectic pace in the City Across The River. With that in mind, we decided to update our popular guide to some of the borough's best drinking establishments, taking out a few that no longer quite cut the mustard and adding others that deserve your custom.
We also revisited the cover, giving it a lively new look. In this city guide are bars old and new for any temper; from highfalutin to homely, tranquil to raucous. A saloon for New York's beachcombers, one for philosophers, bars for scholarly pursuits and musical appreciation, a few for a good old-fashioned shot and a beer, and many more for crackerjack cocktails of the moment.
This updated guide to 31 bars is for the connoisseur as well as the thirsty, taking in fancy bars and dives, bars with views and bars with history, bars to play bocce, and bars to get into trouble. And, of course, there are bars to forget those troubles too.
