    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.

      I have had it at Bread on Spring Street.

      Watermelonade is sold at Rickshaw Dumpling Bar.

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

            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

            WATER
            MELLON
            JUICE

            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.

                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.

                  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.
