Touring New York City's beer gardens

"Between 1820 and 1860, 1.5 million immigrants arrived in America from Germany, bringing with them their own cultural traditions -- among them outdoor beer gardens.

"Unlike the bars in Irish neighborhoods, the German beer gardens catered to whole families, and public drinking was just one of their attractions. Although many of New York's historic beer gardens have disappeared, this summer you can still enjoy a cold one at any of these authentic beer gardens around the city."

So reads the introduction to Daniel Lehman's story on the am New York.com site.

He takes readers on a tour of authentic beer gardens in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. A quick, informative read.
