Anytime New Yorkers want to wade up to their ankles in saw-dust and double fist dirt cheap pints of beer, they head to Lower East Side bar, McSorley’s.Everyone knows this.
How do we know this? A friend of JVNY was at McSorley’s taking pictures, and he overheard this terrifying news:
“There were about 4 or 5 guys out front in a group and one off to the side. The guy to the side asked me why I was taking photos of the place. He said that he was the owner of the building and had been trying hard to sell the place. Said he was tired of the city and wanted to move up to Albany.”
Maybe it was a cruel joke (no one is laughing), maybe the tipster was day dreaming (or day nightmaring). JVNY was unable to confirm this information.
If you know anything, though, let us know. We may not be able to get to sleep tonight.
