Get the door, it's the liquor store
Jamaica, New York is a borough full of energy and culture, with over a hundred different languages spoken and eateries... representing mouthwatering dishes from the West Indies. The neighborhood’s diversity attracts local New Yorkers and tourists alike; the community’s deep commitment to the arts ensures you’ll always be able to find a show, whether jazz, dance, or poetry. Both the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning and the Afrikan Poetry Theatre Inc. are just a couple blocks from Jamaica’s F-Line MTA stop. Curiously, even with its enticing Caribbean restaurants serving plates of jerk chicken, fried plantains, and breadfruit, Jamaica, New York is not named for the famous island nation. Jamaica was given its name for the Native American word for beaver, “yamecah.” No matter its namesake, if you’re mixing up a Dark’n’Stormy for your Caribbean takeout, you can now rely on Drizly. With its online marketplace full of spicy rums and dark beers, you can quickly find the perfect pairing.
