The Brooklyn Barge

An old, nothing special, beat-up barge…but place it out on the water across from Manhattan and watch it transform into something pretty spectacular. The Brooklyn Barge [3 Milton St Brooklyn, NY 11222] is a hip new-ish spot in the Greenpoint neighborhood, however it’s got a totally relaxed ambiance.
