Love for McSorley's

The New Yorker on McSorley's:
“It’s a quintessential New York landmark that still has a character. Everything about it is reassuring, constant, historic—which is rare in the U.S. Lots of people have visited: from Lincoln to Lennon, or Hunter S. Thompson—the list is endless. I loved to go to McSorley’s when I lived in New York, before I moved to the woods in Connecticut. It has a lovely atmosphere, and it’s a good place to talk to strangers (even ladies, since 1970!) and forget the Internet. It can be noisy, it can be lonely, but I love the smell of the beer coming out of the furniture…and the wood chips on the floor.”
