McSorley’s Old Ale House

My recent jaunt in the Village was with the mind to find a legendary place.  Okay, it wasn’t all that legendary to me.  Some co-workers had mentioned it as the place to go for the St. Patricks Day Paraders and I hadn’t heard of it (at least to my recollection).

It’s McSorley’s Old Ale House, a bar located on East 7th Street near 3rd Avenue.  It has the slogan “We were here before you were born”.  True enough, it was founded in 1854.

It strives to maintain its history, including sawdust covered floors and bragging rights that its patrons range from Abe Lincoln to John Lennon.

As it is strictly a bar and I am not a lover of beer, I didn’t bother going in.  It looks interesting for others, though.
