Summer’s Back! Here’s Our Outdoor Drinking and Eating Map

Summer’s Back! Here’s Our Outdoor Drinking and Eating Map

Sup global warming? So the hotly anticipated fall season seems to have gone on vacay this week. But no matter, this just means your Hawaiian shirts have a new lease on life, and chilling at sidewalk cafes and bars around the city is as comfortable as it is possible. So check out our map of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops in the East Village, LES, and North Brooklyn that, according to city records, boast licensed sidewalk cafes where you can tipple, snack and people-watch. We’ve linked each outdoor spot to its New York mag listing so you can decide wisely. Only a few days of this goriousness left, after all.

Now the creatives who consider the 6,000-square-foot, 130-foot-long boat their community space are trying to raise money to fix up the ailing, 41-year-old vessel. More →

Great Jones Cafe Reopens: ‘Reports of Our Demise Were Greatly Exaggerated’

We reported last week that beloved Cajun eatery and longtime Bowery hangout Great Jones Cafe was temporarily shutting down — and, according to cryptic information from an employee, would or would not return. Fearing that the Great Jones had become yet the latest victim of rising rents, New Yorkers swarmed onto social media to pay their respects and lament the loss of a neighborhood institution that has served as an indispensable cultural hub for local artists, musicians, and writers — some of whom, like Basquiat, have become quite famous.

Above, check out Taylor celebrating Patterson’s footage from the ’88 Tompkins Square Park riot, GG Allin’s last show, and drag and hardcore shows at places like The Pyramid (which recently experienced a corporate co-opting of this own). Patterson emailed it to us along with the thoughts below.

It’s only a matter of time before the recently vacated White Castle on Metropolitan is leveled and another McCondo is erected. As we wait for 781 Metro Investors — the company that purchased the lot in 2013 for $6.72 mil — to bulldoze the spot where so  many sliders and chicken rings were shamefully inhaled after last call, the facade has been repurposed by some street artists.
