We mostly appreciate Carragher’s because of its size. It’s a pub on 39th Street, and it has two big floors and rooftop. The rooftop isn’t very high, so there isn’t much of a view, but it’s great for when you want to drink outside with a small group. There’s also plenty of seating inside, so you shouldn’t have much trouble getting a table here. Sure, it looks more or less like a generic pub that hasn’t been renovated since the mid-’90s, but it’s a useful place to know about, and they serve slushy drinks.
