    After a day in the park, head on over to Torst and try one of the many beers on tap. The "Evil Twin" is a definite go-to. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check.

    For peace & quiet and a real park setting - go here on the weekdays during the day. If you want the NYC crowds and inhalation of cigarette smoke come weekend afternoons and evenings w/ the Hipsters.
