See, New York IS good for something
This was, without a doubt, the finest rugby pitch I've ever played on, and walking distance from a zillion bars in the Village. Realturf, regulation-sized, and just awesome. It looks like they use it for soccer, baseball/softball, and obviously rugby, so if find out you're going to play some sporting event at the place, get pumped. It's awesome.
