best reason to go to long island city and not visit moma (2008)

WATERFRONT CRAB HOUSE

With more boxing memorabilia than Jimmy's Corner Bar (Rocky Graziano's shoes, Jake LaMotta's autograph, etc.) and more highball-sipping seniors than a Boca Raton buffet, the century-old WATERFRONT CRAB HOUSE is a throwback to bygone New York. But history isn't the only draw: For less than MOMA's admission price, you can score a damn fine Bloody Mary, unlimited peanuts (served out of a porcelain bathtub, no less), and a view of what has to be the city's largest unironic collection of trucker hats.
