  1. The AM NY story is wrong to suggest Rory Dolans is an place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the Bronx. Rory Dolan's is in Yonkers. Also pretty deceptive to suggest the 4, 2 and 5 trains take you "directly" to "Little Ireland", aka Woodlawn. The 2 and 5 take you to Wakefield-- a good 20 minute walk across the Bronx River to Katonah Ave. The 4 takes you to the southern edge of Woodlawn Cemetery, thus the name for the stop -- but not to the neighborhood the article is about. There is a bus at the 4 train terminal that will take you directly to Katonah Ave and locales described-- but still they are really misleading their readers when they say "directly"

    All that being said -- Rambling House is the best and is actually in the Bronx! A smart Bronxite will stay away on St. Patrick's Day, though. The place will be packed! Better to visit other days of the year to really appreciate what a fine establishment it is.
