This tavern in the West Village was opened in 1880.
Dylan Thomas drank (and drank and drank) here,
and supposedly Jack Kerouac was kicked out more than
once. Other famous patrons included Thomas's
namesake Bob, Jim Morrison, Norman Mailer, and
James Baldwin. When I went by on this summer Sunday,
it looked like a nice mix of locals and tourists,
and the usual bridge-and-tunnel crowd.
