This East Village bar has been around since somewhere between 1854-1865, and has been a vibrant part of the neighborhood since then.

Writers like Brendan Behan and Paul Blackburn were regulars here. E.E. Cummings described McSorley's as "the ale which never lets you grow old" as well as "snug and evil."

Other notable visitors include Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Boss Tweed.

Here is a picture of Woody Guthrie performing there in 1943.
