“13th Step (149 Second Ave between 9th and 10th Sts; 212-228-8020, nycbestbar.com/13thstep) is the best for day-drinking because they open at 11:30am and have half-off drinks all day. My girlfriends and I go on Fraterdays [Saturdays] and get all the bro-y guys to buy us drinks.”
“I love Rockaway Beach (Boardwalk between Beach 9th and 149th Sts, the Rockaways, Queens; 718-318-4000, nycgovparks.org). It’s just a lot of surfers. [Part of the boardwalk] is gone now because of the hurricane but we’ll still go to Rockaway Taco (95-19 Rockaway Beach Boulevard at Beach 96th St; 347-213-7466, rockawaytaco.com) for the fish tacos—they’re so good."
