    1. Off-Broadway Week shows and casual corner slices EAT casual before the show at Corner Slice and dig into a piece (or two) of the vodka sauce slice and chicken parm hero. DO catch an Off-Broadway Week performance of Drunk Shakespeare and take a friend for the 2-for-1 ticket deal to enjoy the hilarious show together. DRINK like the performers at rustic-chic spot La Pulpería and toast to a fun night out with black lava-salted sips and pineapple-topped cocktails. 2. Celebrate Black History Month at these Black-owned businesses EAT chic on Friday at Massawa and dine on traditional Ethiopian dishes from vegan spicy lentils to tender sirloin plates. DO shop local for your wine at Liquid Assets and take home a bottle of red Saturday night to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. DRINK healthy on Sunday with a ginger-based juice from Uptown Veg & Juice to end the weekend on a sweet note! 3. End date night with a cereal bar EAT with your partner at Creole restaurant Sugar Factory and share a plate of beignet sliders in this rustic-chic space. DO grab dessert up the street at Milk and Cream Cereal Bar for a breakfast-inspired treat! DRINK to keep the night going at nearby Sweet Afton and try one of their cleverly-named cocktails like the coconut-infused Cat's Pajamas. #food #boroughpark

  • Here are some places to visit in Borough Park: • Times Square: Times Square is a major commercial intersection, tourist destination, and entertainment center. It is formed by the junction of Broadway, Seventh Avenue and 42nd Street. Together with adjacent Duffy Square, Times Square is a bowtie-shaped space five blocks long between 42nd and 47th Streets. Brightly lit by numerous billboards and advertisements, it is sometimes referred to as "the Crossroads of the World", "the Center of the Universe", "the heart of the Great White Way", and "the heart of the world". One of the world's busiest pedestrian areas. Times Square is one of the world's most visited tourist attractions, drawing an estimated 50 million visitors annually. • Rockefeller Centre: There’s something special about every moment you spend at Rockefeller Center. Because these experiences can only happen here. This is the epicenter of everything. And it delivers every time. • Madison Square Garden: Madison Square Garden, colloquially known as The Garden or by its initials MSG, is a multi-purpose indoor arena. It is the fourth venue to bear the name "Madison Square Garden"; the first two (1879 and 1890) were located on Madison Square, on East 26th Street and Madison Avenue, with the third Madison Square Garden (1925) farther uptown at Eighth Avenue and 50th Street. The Garden is used for professional ice hockey and basketball, as well as boxing, concerts, ice shows, circuses, professional wrestling and other forms of sports and entertainment. It is close to other midtown Manhattan landmarks, including the Empire State Building, Koreatown, and Macy's at Herald Square. It is home to the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL), the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and was home to the New York Liberty (WNBA) from 1997 to 2017. #boroughpark #places

  • Let's dive in to the history: Borough Park is a neighborhood in southwestern Brooklyn, lying within New Utrecht southeast of Greenwood Cemetery bounded to the north by 37th Street, to the east by McDonald Avenue, to the south by 64th Street, to the west by Eighth Avenue and its eruv covers 225 blocks. The neighborhood is densely populated and mostly residential, with few parks. Often spelled Boro Park, the area was the site of commercial nurseries in the early nineteenth century and was developed in the 1880s as Blythebourne by Electus B. Litchfield, which the post office is still named after. Initially, the residents were comfortably middle class. Jews from Williamsburg arrived by the 1920s and Italians from the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the 1930s. Boro Park is rightfully known as the “baby boom capital” of New York City, not only for its high birth rate but also because more babies are delivered at the local hospital, Maimonides Medical Center, than any other hospital in New York. Responding to the needs of this growing unique population, many social welfares, and charitable Jewish organizations and institutions were formed. Among the more notable ones are Chevra Hatzolah, Shomrim, Chaverim, Tomchei Shabbos, Bikur Cholim of Boro Park, and later an Eruv Society and dozens of small, community-based charity groups. By 2009 Orthodox or Hasidic Jews accounted for about 80 percent of the population. Today, there are close to 300 shekels; small intimate synagogues preferred by most acids, and close to 100 of them are formal synagogues in synagogue-like buildings, about 130 religious schools, which enroll close to 30,000 students, and more than 20 Hasidic sects, including Belz(er), the Bobov, the Ger, the Satmar, the Skver, the Pupa, the Klausenberg, and the Viznitz. #history #boroughpark
