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.
