Best place to watch hipsters make it to third base (2008)

MCCARREN PARK

A shortstop with a faux hawk and leg warmers is a disorienting sight, but pub league games at MCCARREN PARK add an unexpected dimension to the Williamsburg-Greenpoint community. The grounds are also crammed with sprawling family picnics, trackside break-dancers, a pool filled with nothing but graffiti, and a recurring pair of Hasidic Jewish men engrossed in an endless game of catch. But the motley softball duels make for the best backdrop to snoozing in the patchy grass. I'm not even sure they keep score.
