Best Impromptu Block Parties (2008)

South Williamsburg

The long outer-borough tradition of chilling on stoops and sidewalks remains strong thanks to SOUTH WILLIAMSBURG's sizable Puerto Rican and Dominican populations. Kegs, grills, and salsa-blasting sound systems attract crowds, but a couple of overturned milk crates and bodega beers are enough to draw clumps of people out of hot, cramped apartments. Meanwhile, I don't know any of the mostly white artsy kids who live in my building, though I'm sure I can find them on Bedford.
