best reason to go to long island city and not visit moma - 2003
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.
