    Fun fact: The actual oldest bar in New York used to be on the corner of Counties Slip and Pearl Street, in what was then New Amsterdam. Since this tavern was the main social gathering spot, it would quickly become the unofficial city hall of New Amsterdam and later of New York. Both the imprints of the early Dutch tavern as well as some archeological remains of the later English tavern (after the English take over of New Amsterdam) are still there: http://goo.gl/maps/LdKII

      Hi Josh, the article addresses the delayed reopening of Chumleys, as we were longtime patrons of the spot. we have our fingers crossed! Thanks for the link.

    With reference to P.J. Clarke’s being used as a location in Annie Hall:

    Which scene is that? The part where Annie sings in the club? Because I’ve seen suggestions that it was downtown: http://www.scoutingny.com/?p=5733

    Incidentally, the final moments of that movie (where Woody and Diane part) take place in and outside what is now P.J. Clarke’s on the corner of 63rd and Amsterdam.

    Speaking of great New York movies, one place this article does not mention is the Emerald Pub in western SoHo, as featured in the brilliant Scorsese comedy, After Hours. Interestingly, in the movie the bar was renamed Terminal Bar, which was a real existing bar (on Eighth Avenue I think) glimpsed in an earlier Scorsese film, Taxi Driver.
