Known to locals for its down-home appeal and its thick, charred cheeseburger served on an English muffin, Skinflints is a longtime neighborhood favorite. Pressed-tin ceilings and tile floors are the legacy of the ice-cream parlor that once occupied this 100-year-old building; the warmth of the regulars is the product of 30 years of good bartending. After paying about ten bucks for a burger, fries and a beer, you’ll understand why the good people of Bay Ridge stay close to home.
