Dive Bar Of the Month: The Railroad Inn

Drown your sorrows—and your livers—at this month’s down-and-out watering hole.

The Railroad Inn, Valley Stream

151 S Franklin Ave.

New York, NY11580

Under the tracks of the Long Island Rail Road is a hole-in-the-wall commuter bar where everybody knows your name. Unfortunately, you’ll never be able to hear it said because of all the loud, rumbling trains overhead. But maybe you’ll see it written on their board, which means someone bought you a drink on a day you weren’t there. Cash in on it while you wait for your train — you’ll know it’s here when the bar starts shaking.
