    There's a place on Chrystie St. in Chinatown that has a good one. I think it's New York Villa, 81 Chrystie. Check the menu posted in the window.

      I had some delicious watermelon juice last week at Skyway Malaysian Restaurant on Allen St. I think they just threw watermelon into a blender and then served it up - very refreshing.

        In the window of one of the little take-out taco joints on the west side of 1st avenue, within a block or two of DBA (which is between 2nd and 3rd Streets on 1st Ave), there's a hand-lettered sign that says


        might be worth a shot.

            Cool, is the food really good? Better than Paquito's on 1st and 9th? That's my go-to for cheap Mexican right now but I'm always looking.

              May not be what you are looking for but the Soccerfields in Red Hook have a nice watermellon drink

                I have had it at Bread on Spring Street.

                Watermelonade is sold at Rickshaw Dumpling Bar.

                  Your best bet is to try juice places in Chinatown (as they tend to blend real fruit into juices) - worse case scenario - buy some watermelon and process it in a blender and then strain it - I have done this myself - it is not as much trouble as it sounds - esp. if you are craving watermelon juice w/ Vodka. Hmm mmmmmm.
