New Bronx beer garden in Throgs Neck set to open

With summer heating up, a new place to hang out and grab a beer will soon be opening up in Throgs Neck.

Nicky's Barbecue and Beer Garden will feature seating for 400 people to relax on a summer day and enjoy a beer and some barbecue.

The owner, Nicholas Ligotino, says he is also doing his part by hiring mostly Bronx residents to work there.

Ligotino says the beer garden will host its grand opening later this month and says that the garden will remain open during the winter when large heaters are installed.
