New York – Manhattan – East Village

Posted in East Village, Greenwich Village, Manhattan, United States of America on January 17, 2017 by gannet39

McSorley’s (Elementary B), 15 E 7th St, www.mcsorleysoldalehouse.nyc

As New York’s oldest continuously operated bar, since 1854, McSorley’s still retains the feel of an old pub.

We learned from the bartender that McSorley’s remained open during prohibition as they were selling weak ‘half beer’ and no spirits.

They brew their own light and dark ales which aren’t up to much (C) but it’s worth going just for the atmosphere.

Burp Castle www.burpcastlenyc.wordpress.com, just down the road at 41 E 7th St also looks like a good boozer.

As you can see on my Google map there were many, many other places in the East Village that I wanted to check out but didn’t have the time for.

One of my regrets is not going to one of the Momofuku chain momofuku.com which were crazy popular when I was in NYC in 2015.
