Christmas wreaths and ribbon join portraits of famous writers and actors on the walls of Chumley’s Restaurant, an eatery in Greenwich Village which dates back to 1922. The former speakeasy, purportedly the origin spot of the term to “86” something, is decked out in garland with oversized Christmas ornaments hanging from the ceiling. The shiny baubles of red, green and gold mixed with the lit up garland and wreaths give the historic location extra shimmer this holiday season.
