Narratively, a website publishing wonderful long-form features, turns its gaze toward Ridgewood for its latest story. A Kingdom in Queens is about Gottscheer Hall, a beer hall that caters to the Gottschee community. Gottscheers arrived in the country in the 1880s from a German settlement in what is now Slovenia. After World War Two, thousands moved to Ridgewood. Gottscheer Hall opened in 1924 and still serves Hofbrau and Krainerwurst to this day. Recommended reading for the weekend!
