Looks like an interesting place. Looks to me like they only sell "half" beers. Never saw a full one in all those pictures.

I’ve had many good times in that place down thru the years. There’s also a great place called Fraunces Tavern on Pearl St in the city. I believe this is the oldest tavern in the city. Both are great places to throw a few down.

Fraunces Tavern is where then General George Washington took leave of his generals on 12/04/1783.

I helped keep McSorley's doors open in the Fall of 1960. It was after college graduation and before reporting for USAF pilot training. Two beers was about all I could afford, but we had a good group and some fine times.

Nothing like being in the city with family and friends.

I’m taking the family to the Christmas show at Radio City in a couple weeks.
