Hopefully I can get some help on this topic. My wife and I, along with some of our friends are hell bent on going away again for St. Patrick's Day this year. The contenders are: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Boston, and Hoboken or Jersey City? Any help would be great, including places to stay, Irish pub grub, great places for pints, parades, parties, etc. Thanks to all in advance! The only thing that is worrisome is the news about crackdowns on the celebration and parade being cancelled before.
