Despite it’s proximity to P.S.1, this modest Irish pub decorated with gnomes, sports-favoring TVs and abundant neon is an unaffected hangout. Museumgoers rub elbows with graffiti artists (the legal taggers’ haven 5 Pointz is next door), workaday joes and suits, who order properly poured Guinness pints and sweet Shannon Pot Shamrock Ales. Teetotalers sit at paper-covered tables and munch burgers and fish-and-chips to the sounds of rock and roll and the rattling 7 train.
