PJ Clarkes Old New York Bar

 





PJ CLARKE'S SALOON

by Bellino



"ONE of FRANK SINATRA'S FAVORITE JOINTS"


Are you a True Downtowner who has found themselves for one reason or another has found themselves on the Upper East Side and needed a good place to have a drink and grab a good Burger. You need a good joint, not a obnoxious Sports Bar with 20 annoying Flat Screen TVs. You’re not from BumFu_k Iowa, so Applebee’s or Tj McFunsters just won’t do. You’re a Downtowner, you need a inexpensive, unpretentious, non-contrived place with a Cool Vibe. Well for years now, my Go-To all-around place on the Upper East Side (for the Rare Times I’m in that neighborhood) is without question PJ Clarke’s. The ambiance is beyond compare, wonderfully well worn, charming, and awash in History.

PJ Clarke’s was one of Sinatra’s Favorites along with the 21 Club, Jilly’s and Patsy’s on 56th Street. And speaking of Sinatra who recorded a wonderful version of “One For My Baby” which was written at PJ Clarke’s on a Cocktail Napkin by the great Johnny Mercer in 1941.
When I go to PJ Clarke’s, I’m thinking of a Burger, a Beer, and an order of Onion Rings. With all the rage of Burger’s these days, PJ Clarke’s has been serving one of New York’s tastiest Burgers for close to a Hundred Years. Even Jackie Kennedy loved PJ Clarke Burgers and ate them often. And Nat King Cole Proclaimed after eating a tasty Bacon Cheeseburger that it was the Cadillac of Burgers. “You know Nat, I agree.” And combined with the wonderful ambiance, History, and allure of the place, PJ Clarke’s just ca not be beat. Try it!

McSorleys Old Ale House

 

McSORLEY'S

SINCE  1854

One of New York & AMerica's Oldest Bars





McSorley's Old Ale House

New York


McSorley's Old Ale House, generally known as McSorley's, is the oldest Irish Saloon in New York City. Opened in the mid-19th century at 15 East 7th Street, in today's East Village neighborhood of Manhattan, it was one of the last of the "Men Only" pubs, admitting women only after legally being forced to do so in 1970. The aged artwork, newspaper articles covering the walls, sawdust floors, and the Irish waiters and bartenders give McSorley's an atmosphere reminiscent of "Olde New York". No piece of memorabilia has been removed from the walls since 1910, and there are many items of historical paraphernalia in the bar, such as Houdini's handcuffs, which are connected to the bar rail. There are also wishbones hanging above the bar; supposedly they were hung there by boys going off to World War I, to be removed when they returned, so the wishbones that are left are from those who never returned.

Two of McSorley's mottos are "Be Good or Be Gone", and "We were here before you were born". Prior to the 1970 ruling, the motto was "Good Ale, Raw Onions and No Ladies"; the raw onions can still be had as part of McSorley's cheese platter.

McSorley's is considered to be one of the longest continuously operating ale houses in the city due to the fact that during Prohibition it served a "near beer" with too little alcohol to be illegal. In 2005, New York magazine considered McSorley's to be one of New York City's "Top 5 Historic Bars"


Who drank there? Since 1854, McSorley's has seen many luminaries walk through its doors for a Liverwurst Sandwich and a couple mugs of Ale. Who? None other than Abraham Lincoln had a couple ales at McSorley's after he made his famous Cooper Union Speech just a few feet from the bar. Lincoln was not the only President who drank at McSorley's both Teedy Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, as well as Civil War General and 18th President of The United States, Ulysses S. Grant drank a couple pints at McSorley's as well.


The writer EE Cummings and artist John Sloan who did a couple monumental paintins of McSorley's were known to frequent the bar also.

The Mona Lisa - DaVinci

 




The MONA LISA

"The WORLD'S Most Famous Painting" !!!!

by Leonardo Da Vinci


The Mona Lisa is a half-length portrait painting by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci. Considered an archetypal masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance, it has been described as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world".

The painting is probably of the Italian noblewoman Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, and is in oil on a white Lombardy poplar panel. Leonardo never gave the painting to the Giocondo family, and later it is believed he left it in his will to his favored apprentice Salaì. It had been believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506; h















owever, Leonardo may have continued working on it as late as 1517. It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic itself, on permanent display at the Louvre, Paris since 1797.

The Mona Lisa is one of the most valuable paintings in the world. It holds the Guinness World Record for the highest known insurance valuation in history at US$100 million in 1962  (equivalent to $870 million in 2021).

Edward Hopper CHOP SUEY

 




"CHOP SUEY"

Edward Hopper



The scene depicts two women at a table in a restaurant with another couple in the background. The only features being shown in particular detail are the painted woman’s face, the coat hanging above her, her companion’s back [to the viewer], the features of the couple in the background, the Tea Pot on the table, the masked lower window panel, and the restaurant sign outside. These are all features that would bring a sensory element (besides sight) to the memory painted: the buzzing noise of the outside light, the voices of the people in the background, the texture of the coat, the taste of the tea and smell of the cigarette smoke (held by the man), and the muddled light from the masked window.

Edward Hopper’s artwork is known for its realistic scenes that touch themes of isolation and self-being rather than a narrative context. He often described his art as a “transcription [of his] most intimate impressions of nature” meaning he related the process of painting to that of memory. This idea could further be described in another way as when, for example, you draw something from a personal memory, certain details can be remembered but everything outside the primary focus is blank background. Chop Suey captures this concept of memory, making the viewer focus on particular elements of sensory iconography whilst depicting a theme of isolation due to self being.


According to art scholar David Anfam, one "striking detail of Chop Suey is that its female subject faces her doppelgänger." Others have pointed out it would not be so unusual for two women to be wearing similar hats, and that it is presumptuous to claim doppelgängers when one subject's face is not visible to the viewer. The painting has an interior subject matter, being inside of a cafe, and does not focus on any one given figure. As with many of Hopper's works, the painting features close attention to the effects of light on his subjects.
